Tips to practice Drums
- Use a can of compressed air to get the dust out of those hard to reach places like in-between lugs and under the foot pedals of your drums.
- Drum Teachers: Use flash cards as part of your drum lessons to help your students learn note values, dynamic markings, etc. You can make them yourself on 3 X 5 index cards.
- Have a “Don’t Forget” list for all your instruments and related drum gear. Be sure to include such things as extra drum heads, drum sticks, mics and mic cables, metronome, duct tape, etc. This list will help you to never have one of those gut-wrenching moments when you realize you left something at home 2 hours away.
- Listen to “all” styles of music. This boosts your creativity on the drums and makes you more aware of how to approach these styles if you ever confront them in your band.
- For dried up duct tape residue on your cymbals or drum stands, invest in a bottle of “Goo Gone”. This stuff is amazing (and even smells good!).
