What if you could learn how to play drums in 4 weeks? I think that with some dedication, a little practice each day and some help from www.LearnDrumsNow.com, YOU CAN DO IT! And when you’ve reached your goal of playing the drums, it’s just the beginning of a fun and exciting life of playing music.
I’ve created a drum lesson plan for you to follow, learning new things each week that build on what you already know. You will be investing time each day, but not all of that time needs to be spent with drumsticks in your hands. You will learn to practice and improve while you are away from the drum set. The most important thing is to do something related to playing the drums, no matter how small, each and every day. Long hours of practice are not required. In fact, it’s better to practice for a short period of time each day than to practice a long time one day and skip the next.
The drum lessons for each week of the 3 month plan are divided into 3 sections, a concept I call Head, Hands and Heart (H3):
- Head: You can practice without sitting behind a set of drums. You’ll learn how thinking about a drum beat and visualizing yourself playing the drums will make practicing easier.
- Hands (and Feet): You will be a better drummer the more you practice. Each lesson will focus on practicing the drums while playing music.
- Heart: To play music effectively, you must feel the groove of a song. You will learn tips to “feel” the music in the Heart section of each lesson.
So here is your success plan for learning to play drums in a band within 3 months.
Week 3: Learn To Play the Parts of a Song
Head: The Parts of a Song and What They Mean To a Drummer
Hands: How to Play a Closed Hi-Hat
Heart: Quiet Verse plus Loud Chorus equals Dynamic Drums
These lessons are posted on this site; just click on a link to see the lesson. I’m looking forward to helping you become a better drummer, no matter what level you are at now. The most important thing to remember when following this plan is to have fun. Don’t be concerned if you fall behind and it takes longer than expected. It is better to keep going at a slower pace and enjoy what you are doing than to give up. If you get discouraged, take a break from following the routine and just have fun playing the drums. Remember why you started this journey and the enjoyment will come back.
