Starting drum lessons

Starting drum lessons is a great idea if you want to pick up a new skill that will let you play an instrument in bands, that will give you a great hobby you can practice on your own, and that will also develop you in other important ways. Here we will look at why you should start to play the drums and what this is likely to entail.

If you want to start playing the drums then you will be picking up an integral instrument that is needed in every band and that is always in demand. If a group doesn't yet sound professional, then obvious this simply boils down to the fact that they don't yet have a drummer. This is a void you can fill, and that will ensure that you are invited to play in lots of bands. Too many people play the guitar meaning that you have to be amazing before anyone will invite you to jam with them. However as the drummer you will likely be getting invites right away.

What also helps with this is simply how easy it is to pick up the drums. If you start playing the drums then it will be no time at all before you pick up the basic beats, and to the untrained ear this sounds highly professional. This allows you to pass for a great drummer very soon, and it means you can have a lot of time playing along with your favourite music before learning that much.

At the same time, despite being such an easy instrument to pick up and start learning, the drums are also an instrument that you can really develop and improve on and that take an awfully long time to master. The difficulty of the drums comes from having to keep multiple different rhythms all at once and this will mean keeping steady beats with both hands and your feet and at the same time keeping in time with the music.

This actually requires you to split your brain into separate halves and this is incredibly good as a form of brain training for you. You will find that after learning to play the drums you improve your timing, your dexterity and your ambidexterity and it's a great way to become more alert and more awake and to at the same time improve your forearm strength even.

When you first pick up the drums and start to learn to play, you will likely be taught the basic rock beats. These are 'rock beat 1' and onwards. These generally involve starting with a steady beat with one of your hands, and then layering another beat over the top with the other. Right away you will see why the drum can be so challenging.

If you want to have a little go yourself and to decide if you might be right for the drums, then just do a quick search for 'rock beat one' on YouTube and place your hands on the table as though you were playing the bongos. Now follow the instructions on there and see what you make of it.

Playing drums can be great fun, but it helps to get a few drum lessons first. My son recently visited this drum teacher in Melbourne and really enjoyed it.
