How can I improve my drumming technique?

Every musician, regardless of their current level, strives to improve their technique. The drum kit is part of almost any band and the sound of all other instruments depends on the drummer. Therefore, any good drummer should constantly work on their technique and sense of rhythm.

We have collected tips for you that will help you correctly build the educational process and achieve the desired result as quickly as possible.

Be confident in yourself
No matter how banal it may sound, believe that you will succeed! At the first stages, playing drums may seem too difficult, because most people don’t even know what kind of work the drummers are doing. So your most important skill is to be able to motivate yourself, even if the result makes you wait a bit.

Practice, practice, and practice again
Make a habit of practicing every day. Even if you can only practice for 15 minutes, it still means that you can become 15 minutes more experienced. Of course, more practice will give you a faster result. However, the main thing in your independent studies is awareness. Keep track of your technique, observe a clear and even meter and bring tasks to perfection. Then the effectiveness of your classes negates the lack of time.

Physical training
Playing the drum kit is a hard exercise: your arms and legs are in constant motion, so you should develop your stamina so that you can practice longer. The same principles work here as, for example, when passing a marathon: the stronger your muscles, the easier and faster you will pass the distance.

Play with others!
Playing drawings solo or under a minus is, of course, a great practice for a drummer. But playing with a music group is a completely different level. You will learn how to adapt to musicians, help them out, and also learn what it’s like to sound as one with other people. That’s why we at Jam’s cool have classes in a vocal and instrumental ensemble that are so necessary for a drummer. When you observe the progress of other students, the motivation to do it yourself increases significantly.

Try different musical styles
Even if you are going to play exclusively heavy rock, you can try, for example, Latin rhythms: the beauty of drum music is its diversity. Some styles will only need your hands and feet, while others will need sticks, brushes, and scavengers. And then there are the cymbals, djembe and cowbell. The more you know and can do, the more space you have for creativity!
