Drums, one of the loudest but undeniably coolest instruments. Needed in every band, and the instrument that lays down the grooves and keeps the group together. What would a band be without its drummer? Not only is taking drum lessons fun, loud, and a great way to release energy and stress but to play the drums confidently and in time develops discipline, practise skills, and motivation. There’s also a great social aspect that comes with playing the drums - most drummers you meet are in more than one band, therefore playing with more people, and making more music!

Choosing your first drum kit is a difficult task. It can help to understand the different parts of the drum, so you can make sure you're getting everything you need! You can talk to your drum tutor in drum lessons about buying the right kit!
Some stores will sell a beginner kit which includes the full kit (snare, toms, bass drum), hardware (all stands and pedals), as well as cymbals. Other stores will sell the kit and the cymbals separately. It’s worth going into different shops and seeing what they have available. A lot of drummers choose to buy kit separate to hardware so they can get exactly the sound they want from each part of the kit, especially with regards to cymbals. It's worth consulting your drum tutor in your drum lessons so you definitely make the right choice!
When first starting drum lessons, it's important to remember: it’s better to do a simple beat well than a complex one badly. There is a lot of coordination involved with playing the drums which is what makes the instrument so difficult. When you’re learning your first beats/grooves, try to really focus on hitting everything at the right time. Start slow and simple, then you can build up to more complex, faster beats.
Posture is important when playing any musical instrument, but particularly important when playing the drums as you are sitting down for long periods of time. Your drum tutor will cover this in your drum lessons, but here are a couple of tips to get you started:
This is a great starting point to work from, but just remember to make sure it's comfortable for you and works for what styles and genres you're playing.
Practising between your drum lessons is vital - but daunting. Just think of practising a musical instrument a bit like starting to go to the gym: when you first go, you can’t lift the heaviest weight - you have to work your way up gradually! It's the same idea with music. For the first couple of months, try practising for 15-20 mins a day. After 6 months, try increasing to 30 mins a day. After a year of playing, maybe try an hour a day. It's better to practise regularly for shorter amounts of time than playing for hours on one day, then not being able to do play for the rest of the week. You don't want to injure yourself, or tire yourself out! Little and often develops your technique and helps you build movement memory.
