WELCOME TO ORIENTATION
Welcome to Gridbook Percussion Academy! We are so happy you have decided to learn with us. This journey is going to be a lot of fun!

We are here to help you get better, develop efficient practice habits, and tailor the learning experience to your preferences. Some students prefer to learn on their own, others enjoy help from us, and we’re here to teach anyway you like.

We're sure you’ll have fun looking around for yourself, but we also want to give you some pointers on how to get the most out of your new online campus. Use the links below to discover more about your new online school.

HOME BASE

DASHBOARD

When you login, you’re brought to your “Dashboard”. This is your home base for quick access to things around the school. 

EDIT PROFILE

You can go to Account > Edit Profile to update your profile picture, and put some information about yourself to help you connect with other students with similar interests. 

WAYS TO LEARN

COURSES

You now have access to our full library of course materials. This includes method books, videos, play along tracks, and tutorials. Each course also allows you to highlight, take notes, and track your progress. Have fun getting better!

LIVESTREAMS

Every week we do a variety of educational livestreams. This includes things like Chopout Sessions, Feedback Sessions, and Lectures. This is where you get to interact with the staff in real time.

OFFICE HOURS

Want some 1-on-1 time? Each week you can schedule a time to meet with an instructor. This is great for goal setting, asking specific questions, and audition prep.

THE COMMUNITY

"The Community" is our own private social media platform. This is where you can post videos for personal feedback, share articles, ask questions, and make friends. This is fun because you feel the positive energy of everyone working to get better!

Feel free to make your first post in the community introducing yourself!

WATCH

Enjoy a large library of Lot Videos, Documentaries, and Interviews to get inspired. This is like Netflix for percussionists.

THE LIBRARY

The Library is where you can find great articles, videos, and quick tips. Think of this as a large database of knowledge.

INBOX

This is a group text with your instructors, Mark Perrett and John Lluvera. Any time you need help, have a question, or just want to chat, write us here. This is also where we send you assignments and follow up with you after meetings.

THANK YOU
