Learning to Play the Drums

<h2><strong>Tailored Drum Tutorials</strong></h2>

Drummers are big tattooed blokes, right?

That’s the stereotype. Drums are so much more than that. They’re the science of rhythm. They’re part of most types of music including jazz or the blues, to name a couple.

If you love percussion or music, why not learn how to play the drums? Do you ever just feel like you need to hit a snare, cymbal, or bass drum? Want to play like Phil Collins? Here’s how you can find the right drum tutor to help you learn about drumming, music, and rhythm.

You can attend a music school, drum lessons, join a band, or even an orchestra.

<h2><strong>Learning About Rhythm and Music with Drum Lessons</strong></h2>

If you like rock music, the drums, alongside the guitar, are arguably the most important instrument. Drums give the song its tempo through the regular rhythm of a bass drum, snare, and cymbal. Fans of bands like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Toto, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Doors, etc., will probably immediately think of guitar, bass or singing lessons. What about the drums

Playing drums is different. For one, there are tonnes of guitarists, pianists, and singers. Drummers are a rarer breed even though every band needs one!

Before you go off joining a band, though, you'll need to learn how to play them.  Keep practising. The drums are a difficult instrument to play. They're also physically demanding. Even if you've got an innate sense of rhythm (you'll struggle if you don't), drumbeats vary from style to style so you'll need years of study and practice. You'll need to become a master of the snare, bass drum, toms, etc.

To learn all of this, you'll want to think about getting music lessons from a teacher. However, you can teach yourself how to play. But it's a lot easier with a drum tutor and you'll progress a lot more quickly. Thanks to them, you'll learn about a whole range of different musical styles: musicals, rock, hip-hop, pop, orchestral music, jazz, funk, groove, soul, etc.

<h2><strong>Playing in a Group Thanks to Attending a Drum Lesson at Home</strong></h2>

Rather than going to a drum school or music school, you could get the drum lessons to come to you. While the drums aren’t always pleasant for the parents or neighbours, if you can isolate the sound, you can always learn to play the drums from the comfort of your own home.

All of our drum tutors can teach you about music and how to play the drums. They’ll adapt their teaching approach to each student and help you to progress more quickly than you would otherwise. Whether you want to learn about music theory, rhythm theory, playing along to a certain song, are a beginner or an experienced drummer, your tutor will tailor their lessons to you.

After you’ve studied, you can move onto the final step. Playing in a band! We’re not going to lie... most drummers dream of joining a band. Unlike other instruments like the piano, violin, guitar, bass, saxophone, etc., the drums don’t tend to get played solo. Except in the garage...

<h2><strong>Drums: An Accompanying Instrument </strong></h2>

The drums are an instrument designed to accompany other musicians.

If you want to perform to a captive audience, make sure you get help from a private music tutor. There are tutors to help you learn how to play the drums and learn more about rhythm theory as well as tutorials for other instruments such as the piano, guitar, bass, recorder, flute, and even DJ!

Whatever style of music you like, your tutor can help you learn how to play the drums.

<h2><strong>Learn More About the Drums, Music Theory, and Rhythm Theory with a Private Drum Tutor</strong></h2>

Are you not learning enough about drumming from online tutorials and websites? You can’t really learn to play the drums in front of a screen. You need to have a drum tutor to help you.

You’ll probably be asking how to play a certain Phil Collins song or how to become a professional drummer.  We recommend that you get a professional to help you. An experienced drummer can teach you about rhythm and different drumming techniques. While you can learn a song by just listening to it, it’s easier with tuition. Once you know the theory behind it, it’s much easier to learn how to play a drumbeat. Why not get a private drum tutor from Superprof to help you?

<h2><strong>Find a Private Drum Tutor Near You</strong></h2>

Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve some experience playing the drum, you can find your perfect drum tutor here!

There are hundreds of drum tutors on Superprof. Don't hesitate to tell them what your schedule's like so they can plan your tutorials around it. A drum tutorial in London, for example, costs £29 per hour on average.

Our drum tutorials are for anyone who wants to learn how to play the instrument.

You can also learn about percussion in general.

Our private drum tutors are passionate musicians and some even teach several different instruments.

You don’t necessarily need a drum kit to start learning since some tutors will let you use theirs. Most tutors will indicate whether or not you’ll need your own kit.

If you want to start a band, you can also ask your tutor if they know any other musicians. There are guitar tutors, bass tutors, piano tutors, etc., on the site.

If your lessons go well and you decide to install a practice room in your house, make sure you warn the neighbours!
