The Beatles stickman is set to release a series of videos where he is expected to talk about his drumming techniques and life lessons to help and inspire his juniors.

AceShowbiz - Former Beatles star Ringo Starr has launched a MasterClass for wannabe drummers.

The 10-part "Drumming and Creative Collaboration" lessons, with titles like "Ringo's Early Days", "Navigating Your Kit", and "Connecting With Your Audience", will begin online this week.

"Music legend Ringo Starr helped create rock 'n' roll drumming as we know it today," the MasterClass description reads. "Now the 9-time Grammy Award winner wants to inspire new and seasoned drummers alike."

"Through demonstrations behind the kit and personal stories from his time in the Beatles, Ringo shares his principles for creative collaboration, finding your unique playing style, and embracing your musical journey with joy."

The video lessons will span almost two hours in length and feature Ringo chatting about selecting the proper drum kit essentials, techniques, and "personal stories of his life."

The final class will feature an all-star jam session, featuring Starr, Toto star Steve Lukather, and the Eagles' Joe Walsh, among other regulars from Ringo's All-Starr Band.

"As a member of the bestselling band of all time, he candidly shares a behind-the-scenes look into the trajectory of his life as a musician, teaching members how to forge a personal relationship with music and instrumentation."

"If I can give any piece of advice, it's to love what you're doing," adds Starr. "In my class, I will not only teach members how to get started with drums but share how to bring creativity into anything they are passionate about and inspire them to work at something they love.
