Gripping the Drumsticks
Get a handle on how
to grip drumsticks. It is extremely important that you understand
proper gripping technique. Study this carefully and be sure you have
a controlled grip.
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.
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.
