Hi, it's Jared Falk from Drumeo.com - and I'm so excited to announce that, for the first time ever, Drumeo is going to own our very own office and studio!
We've just purchased our new building and we're planning to move in the beginning of September. We've secured most of the financing for the basic renovations, but we need your help renovating the drum studio so we can make the best drum lessons in the world even better!
In 2009 we were focused on DVD drum lessons, so we leased an office space that had a warehouse area in the basement to store our inventory. We never intended to build a recording studio, but we were spending too much money recording at expensive studios and had a bit of extra space in the warehouse - so we put together a make-shift studio with the idea of filming a few lessons here and there.
This little studio has never been the prettiest, and it has all sorts of issues...
...But it also helped us dramatically change our company for the better. We've been able to record hundreds of free lessons for the drumming community, and host a new live drum lesson every single day for our members.
None of this would have been possible without our own studio. So it's been great, but it's also been obvious for quite some time that we need to take the next step forward!
We can't wait to move into the new office building! It was actually a music school in the past, so a lot of the work is already done. But we are asking for fundraising so we can improve the studio to deliver the absolute highest quality drum lessons going forward.
Here is a list of the renovations:
Larger studio = more room for multiple artists and instructors.
Better soundproofing and isolation = happier audio guru (and better sound quality).
Higher ceilings = more lighting and *new* camera angles!
Window between control room and studio = better communication, workflow, and production quality.
Better studio (and closer to airport) = more guest artists!
These improvements will provide instant-benefits for all of our video lessons -- but to get there, we need your help! Every single dollar will bring our dream of a new studio closer to becoming a reality. And to thank you for your support, we've made some really awesome rewards that we know you'll love!
We're so thankful for your time and consideration, and we look forward to helping you reach all your drumming goals!
Risks and challenges
We have already received estimates and chosen a renovation company that will do an awesome job making the Drumeo Edge studio the best facility for online drum lessons. But of course, with this sort of thing there can always be surprises or delays -- and while our goal is to have the new studio running smoothly by the beginning of September, we realize it isn’t a guarantee.
To accommodate, we have arranged to continue using our existing studio until the new one is 100% ready to go. There is no cut-off date on this. We have a great relationship with our current landlord here, and we will continue to use the existing studio until the new one is completed!
As long as we are able to fund this project, you can know with certainty that our new studio will become a reality. Thank you so much for being part of the Drumeo Headquarters Renovation Project!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
