Drummer Travis Barker has been giving Rihanna private music lessons – and she's a great student, he says.

"Teaching Rihanna some things on drums," the blink-182 drummer tweeted on Tuesday, along with a photo of the pair at a rehearsal space in L.A. "She JAMS!!!!! Watch out for her!!"

While Rihanna can be seen behind a drum kit in the video for her latest single "Rude Boy," a source says she really wanted a pro like Barker to teach her how to play so she can perform live on her upcoming European and U.K. tour.

No word yet on whether Rihanna will show off her new skills when she takes the stage at the 2010 Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday.
