Drums are a lot of fun to play and just about every rock/pop band needs them. Drummers are in high demand. Did you know that you can start learning to play drums right away without even owning a drum set? If you are a complete beginner, there are a few things you can learn and practice without even having a drum set. If you just recently decided to learn how to play drums, and don’t own a drum set yet, our instructor still will get you going to start on your quest to learn. To play drums you should have these things prepared: a pair of drumsticks, a practice pad, and a metronome. The first step is to learn how to hold drumsticks properly and play basic beats. You can start practicing by tapping your hands and feet on a tabletop and the floor. This can keep you occupied for a while, since there are a lot of things you can learn about rhythm and handling sticks. After you’ve practiced with the pad for a while and are still think that drumming is for you, you can start shopping for a real drum set to play on. As you learn to play better, it is important to get a good drum set that’s fun to play on. If you’re having fun as you learn and play, it’s much easier to stick with it.
