from the beginning. Some get formal instruction in in their school band
and others just pick it up along the way through friends or maybe through
their church. Regardless of your situation, drum lessons come in handing

serious about drumming.

about Drum Lessons
Drum Lessons or DVD's?
It's an ongoing debate. As technology grows, it's become
easier and easier to access just about anything online remotely. But
with technology also comes some sacrifice. It's no big secret that we
give up the 'human' element - the touch, the feel and the nuance of
one on one lessons that a live instructor offers. Here at Drumming.com,
we're a proponent of personal instruction with a live human being (imagine
that!) as it offers so much more. It also develops real friendships.
Yes, of course it's more expensive but we would argue, well worth every
penny assuming you have the right teacher.
Think of all the other drum lessons as supplements to your invaluable
one-on-one training. You can always pick up a DVD or watch some free
drum videos online but the individual, private tutoring can really zero
in on your specific needs with laser focus and personal attention. This
has been proven to get you to your goals faster with greater efficiency
as private drum teachers can also hold you accountable. If you have
questions about private instruction or finding the right drum teacher
for lessons, call us at 1-804-273-1353. We'll assist in any way that

Why Can't I Get Any Better at Drums?
It's a common complaint among drummers. "I practice
a lot but don't seem to be getting any better." they'll say. While
it may seem daunting, the answer is usually simple. Most drummers do
not stick to a strict practice routine. They'll start off with a beat
or a fill but before they get it down, they'll start jamming and playing
things they already know. It's a common problem and all it takes is
a bit more discipline. Make yourself finish the lesson for that day
before you start playing anythng else. Then come back to it often. Repetition
is the name of the game.
stumbling block is a lack of a game plan. Just as in business, it's
important to define your future. Determine your specific goals. What
do you want to acheive as a drummer? Then map out a game plan that leads
you on a straight path toward that destination. When the game plan is
unclear, you are less likely to be able to stay on that path and you're
practicing will not be as effective.
