Drum Sheet Music: How to read

Why reading drums sheet music is important? It is very simple, same as when you speak you need to learn the alphabet and how different combinations of letters sound; in music, you need to learn the musical notes and its combinations in order to create different sounds. Afterwards, the organization of those sounds in time will create the rhythm. You might be saying, why does this help me to play drums? Really easy; Music is wide, music is huge, as it contains millions of different of the aforementioned combinations or patterns. The more patterns you know, the more music you’ll learn how to play.ย

How to play drums fast?: Drum technique

Sometimes, drum technique is underestimated, and that is a serious mistake. A bad drum technique can lead to not only a bad sound of the instrument, but also into serious injuries to both professional and amateur musicians. Drums technique, like most of the instruments, is focused onย  the muscle relaxation when executing techniques such as Single Stroke Roll or Rebound Stroke. The less tension and energy you use in each of your movements the better it sounds and the faster you can play. Mastering your drums playing through high level drum technique lessons will help you bring out from the most delicate sound to the most powerful one. Read more about drums technique in this article on drum technique.

Learn drums practice: Performance

Did you ever hear about this boring music lessons, where teacher only focus on technique? Of course Damvibes cares about technique but the ultimate goal in music is to transfer emotions to others through the music notes we are producing. That’s why our drum lessons also include exercises that makes expressivity and interpretation one of the main aspects to work on, so our students perform songs on stage like a professional musician.

Frequently asked question on our drums lessons

Having a personal drum instructor will always be better than not having one. It's clear that a teacher that can guide you, correcting your mistakes, your posture, your rhythm or your technique will make you learn how to play drums faster.

Let us answer this question with another question:Can someone learn how to drive at 30? Of course! It's true that kids learnfaster than adults, their brain are like "sponges", but for you sure you can learn how to play drums at 30, 40, 50 and even at older ages!

Everyone can learn by him/herself but, we find obvious that, having a drum instructor will make you improve much faster, as you have a feedback on the aspects you need to improve. For instance, your body posture, drums technique, rhythm, etc.
