Learning How To Play The Drums

It has always been said that playing an instrument can be very beneficial for your brain and memory.聽聽

You may have started playing an instrument at school for your music class or you started playing as an after school hobby. It could be neither and as an adult you began to feel intrigued to explore new hobbies and activities to do in your spare time.

The drum is the easiest to learn as far as learning how to play an instrument, however, it is also the hardest to master. You can easily grab a pair of drumsticks, start playing on a drum set and you鈥檒l quickly be following the beat of your favorite song.

As far as techniques and long time, it is the hardest instrument to master.

Drums have been found to be the oldest musical instrument in the world, with also minimal changes throughout the years. There are many different types of drums, such as the bongos, conga, caj贸n, timbales and many others, but the general construction of any drum is similar in shape and material.

Just like with any instrument, it is recommended to take classes to learn the basics, but it is up to you and your dedicated practice that will master any musical instrument.

Why Play Drums?

You may be debating what instrument you wish to start learning. Learning how to play the drums could be your first experience with a musical instrument or it could be another musical instrument you wish to learn and master.

There are many reasons why playing the drums is a great idea, but the best one out there is because it is proven to make you happy!

For starters, playing the drums has been proven to help relieve stress, frustration and enhance one鈥檚 mood.

Playing drums has even been compared to a runner鈥檚 high as drummers鈥 brains release feel-good endorphins while they are playing.

If you are in school or you are considering signing up your child for drumming lessons, consider that playing drums increases academic performance.

Drumming has been proven to help players with math, communication and building vocabulary and pronunciation. This can all be due to the counting needed to follow a beat, learning and creating lyrics or songs.

On this same note, people who play drums are also helping boost their own brainpower. When you are playing the drums, you are using both sides of your brain. How you may ask? Well, this is due to the coordination of your four limbs, your arms and legs, all are needed when playing this instrument.

Learning how to play beats and keep a rhythm with all four moving at the same time can be very challenging, but practicing will make it perfect.

In addition to keeping your brain healthy, drums will also contribute to your physical endurance.

Next time you are at a concert, take a look at the drummer. You鈥檒l not only notice his or her high energy, but you鈥檒l also notice how they are dripping in sweat and are constantly moving.

This is because the constant movement of your arms and legs will definitely make you break a sweat. Research has found that a drummer will burn 270 calories on average just by playing the drums for 30 minutes.

Another great reason why you or your child should start playing the drums is because it can help you meet new people.

You may be attending drumming lessons by yourself, but drummers are usually in a band or jam out with others. This can also help drummers become more social and improve their communication skills.

Drumming Styles

Once you start playing the drums you may wonder what type of music or beats you wish to play.

Just like with any other instrument, there are different styles of music when it comes to drumming.

Heavy metal is a music genre that is known for its amazing drumming styles and sounds. Some famous heavy metals bands that you can check out are Metallica, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.

Funk is another drumming style that includes playing on the beat. Funk is known for its smooth rhythmic groove and does not require speedy drumming. If you want to get some funk inspiration, check out bands like The Temptations, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Earth, Wind & Fire and The Commodores.

Considered one of the simplest drumming forms is rock & roll. Check out legend bands such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Queen, Nirvana and Guns & Roses for some perfect rock-out tunes that can help you practice your drumming techniques.

A faster type of drumming can be heard in punk music. In order to become a successful punk drummer you must learn how to increase your bass drum speed. It also requires you to have physically conditioned wrists.

Some famous punk bands with great punk drummers include The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, Blink 182 and the Misfits.

It is recommended that before starting to play funk drumming, you get into reggae drumming.聽Drumming in reggae music is also slower paced like funk with a slower tempo and lighter grooves.

You could start practicing with songs from reggae bands such as Bob Marley & The Wailers, UB40 and Steel Pulse.
