Learn Drum Rudiments
To learn how to play the drums, the first thing you need to know is your drum rudiments. The word "rudiment" comes from the word "rudimentary". Drum Rudiments are rudimentary for drumming. They are the meat and potatoes of drumming. You don't have to know how to play all of the rudiments but you should learn at least the basic rolls, paradiddles and flams to get you started.

Drum Lessons with a Teacher
You can buy music without drums on it to help you practice but if you're a beginner, it's always advisable to take at least a handful of drum lessons with a professional drum teacher to help you learn proper techniques. While you can pick up a lot of free lesson information on the net, a teacher can help keep you from picking up bad habits.
