Take a single lesson or series of lessons on drums for beginners through advanced levels. If you’ve never played at all, now’s the time to start. With my Whole Music Drumming approach, which is based on learning lots of songs, you’ll be playing musically on drums in a surprisingly short time.
If you’re a more advanced player, I promise that you’ll be challenged, if technically, than certainly on a musical level. I guarantee you’ll be satisfied, or you’ll get your money back.)
Here’s one point that is basic to my approach: In order to be musicians, drummers need to know what they don’t play. It is essential to learn as much as possible about what everyone else is doing. Understanding melody, harmony, bass, song form and arrangement are just a some of these things.
To that end, I strongly encourage drummers learn to play a tonal instrument, such as a keyboard percussion instrument (glockenspiel, marimba, xylophone and/or vibes). These instruments use similar hand technique to drumming. Piano is also good but requires a completely different type of technique.
Recommended time: 45 or 60 minute weekly sessions are optimal, as drums and percussion have numerous areas to cover. 30 minute sessions can be given, too, but you should determine with me whether a 30 minute lesson is a good option for you.
