Hello beginners, and welcome! If you are just starting your journey in drumming you have come to the exact right place! Learning to play the drums is an exciting and unbelievably rewarding adventure; and it’s fun! It is also extremely important that you learn the proper techniques, the right way, the 1st time!
Over a 40 year period, I have been fortunate to have taught hundreds and hundreds of beginners, and in many ways, they have also taught me! I have come to understand how critical the early learning period can be. For example, bad habits are extremely hard to break and will limit your ability on the drum set, which will limit the amount of fun you will have, which unfortunately, often leads to the student giving up.
Whether you want to be a recreational drummer, a local pro, a qualified instructor, or a national level artist, drumming will lead to personal fulfillment and is a rewarding life long adventure. Learning the proper techniques is important, regardless of how drumming fits into your life! Beginners Corner will give you the right information and techniques, and set you on the right path, wherever that path may lead you in your drumming adventures!
Beginners Corner (volume 1) will not only have you playing a drum beat within the first few minutes, but provides lots of valuable information to build on, such as the proper method of holding the drum sticks, what is a good starting drum setup, should I learn to read music, and so much more!
