Advice for Drummers

When you begin to learn to play the drums, it’s essential to realize that you’ll never stop learning. Playing the drums takes passion and dedication. But it also takes a bit of humility—in the sense that once you realize you’re continuously growing and that there is always room for more growth, you’ll be much better off. Once you’re in the right mindset, then you can effectively learn the proper form, how to define or play behind the beat, and—most importantly—how to learn when not to play.

Finally, when you have those bases covered, you’ll be able to learn how to develop your own style. The greatest drummers of all time got to where they are today not just because they’re talented or hardworking, but because they each brought something new and unique to the music industry. Over the course of your drum lessons with Sheila E., you’ll be taught how to feel the rhythm and add your own flair to a piece of music.
