Are you planning to learn how to play the drums for your extra curricular activity or the summer class? There is a great possibility that you can learn in short meetings, maybe months or even years, depending on your kit, skill, instructor and your dedication. It is very important to get familiar with your kit: the bass, snare and tomtoms; cymbals; and your drumstick because these musical instruments and accessories will help you get the right rhythm. Learning how to play a musical instrument, especially the drums will never be too hard when you are dedicated to play the drums as smoothly as you can.
If you are already familiar with your drum set, you can try on playing your first few beats and match it with eighth notes, you can have several drumsticks and decide which pair sounds better. Sit up straight while playing as this will help your body relax while hitting the drums and cymbals. After your session, you can try to listen with the recorded set and identify how to enhance your footwork and familiarity with the parts. If you are already improving your skill and can play without a trainer, have a metronome so that you can listen to your beat as clearly as possible and practice the beat to perfection.
