Periphery drummer launches new teaching site



Matt Halpern, drummer for metallers Periphery (pictured above), is launching a brand new online music education service.

Bandhappy offers face-to-face or online lessons via a custom-build video chat system.

One guy who seems pretty impressed with the site is Lamb of God's Chris Adler. He said: "Bandhappy really spent the time gathering information from students, teachers and touring artists to create the most well-rounded and groundbreaking online music tool that I've seen. I've given and taken lessons on here myself and even picked up something I used on the new Lamb of God recording. Bandhappy has it all."

Teachers signed up for Bandhappy include members of Periphery, Animals As Leaders and Protest The Hero.
