There are individuals that are gifted enough just to listen from musical instruments being played and they can get the beat and rhythm right away. Without prior lessons, just studying the instrument by themselves usually earns them the title of being a genius. This makes others a bit envious envious since they will need to learn from someone in order to learn how to play a musical instrument.
Drumming may sound like an easy thing to do, but once you play it with your own hands, you will realize how ‘dull’ your sounds produce. Many people have this perception that drumming is just beating the drums with a stick, but it goes beyond that. For this reason, it is important for individuals interested in drumming to learn more about how to play it properly.
Beginner’s step to drumming
Buying a drum set for beginners must be taken into consideration carefully. You must think about the factors that affect whether or not you should spend on a high quality drum set or just settle with a beginner’s. There are also cases wherein it is only applicable to buy highly valued drum sets if this is where you really place your passion into. However, when you find yourself in a situation where you do not need the drum set anymore, you can still sell them to those who are interested about it.
Surprisingly, there are only two items that you need when you practice drumming – a practice pad or a snare drum and a set of drum sticks. That’s all you need for starters. By taking lessons, usually the instructor will guide you to the basics of the drums using the drum set they have provided for drum or music class.
Keep in mind that the basic items you have will set as a foundation when you finally make your way onto the drum set.
What to expect
Your first day will be more about theory, but it depends on how the instructor will guide you. Since this is mostly about music, they will only touch the basics of the theory and will give you practical lessons right away by building up the foundation of your beats and rhythm. You will be given time to practice and also get a feel of your drumsticks. Your instructor will guide you in choosing a pair of drumstick that you feel comfortable to use with as this will be your foundation when you advance your lessons on drumming.
