Drumming develops a growth mindset, eventually improving confidence.
Drumming requires the person to use both sides of their brain, improving their IQ level in the most fun manner possible.
Drummers must count their beats — without a miss! They learn frequencies and intervals as well, increasing their academic performance.
Definitely, yes! As modern technology and video calls are widely used, teaching drums online through video lessons is normal. Some basic technical preparations are needed such as adjusting your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone), so the teacher can see and hear you properly. Also, a stable internet connection is recommended, but other than that, you're good to go (if you have the drum set at home).
You can even practice with your own body when you're just starting, like tapping your favorite song with your hands. The next step is getting a pair of drumsticks. It's very affordable, and you should also get a rubber practice drum pad in the early stages. Alternatively, you can use the drumsticks on a firm and durable surface in your home. Lastly, we strongly advise the purchase of a metronome, either analog or digital. Expect to make close friendships with it, as drummers are expected to maintain a steady tempo, that's their crucial role in the band, and a metronome will help you to build that sense.
Our goal is to give you the skills to play the music you love. So, you can experiment with different styles, not just drum types. We are not tied to any particular style; you can invent your own. Some styles for inspiration: Rock, Metal, Pop, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Country, Conga, Snare, Gospel, and Djembe.
