3 Easy Beginner Drum Beats

By April 29, 2014Drum Lessons

When you are just starting out on the drums it’s very easy to get stuck and not know where to go next. Well this lesson is meant to help all of you beginner drummers who may feel that way. In this lesson I teach you 3 new drum beats that will help you to get un-stuck and more creative behind the drum kit! My biggest encouragement for you with these three beats is take it slow. It’s very important to learn a beat slowly first and then as you get more comfortable you can start to speed it up. This will help make your beats cleaner because you know exactly when you are supposed to hit each drum rather than just flying through a beat a moving on to the next one.

Please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have! I’d love to hear from you!

    I am a 64 yr old woman who has always wanted to play drums. (I play guitar fairly well.) Yesterday, I bought a toy drumset which only has a bas, 2 toms and a hihat. I turned one of the toms into a snare by taping chains onto the bottom.

    I looked for online lessons and yors is the only one that really helped. I can do 1 and 3 of yor beats really well now and I had a very fun morning.

    Just wanted to say thanks and let you know that your post jhelped someone.
