Playing The Drums Without a Drum Set

By March 17, 2014Drum Lessons


A question that I have gotten often is “how can I practice the drums if I don’t have a drum set?” Well fortunately, it is very easy to practice the drums without a drum kit! Anything that can be played behind a drum set can be mimicked just by tapping your hands on your lap and your feet on the ground.
In this exercise I want you to use drum sticks because it can really strengthen you forearms and wrists, so that you can play even better when you step behind a drum set. I generally practice with sticks this way when I’m not behind a drum set and it is really helpful! Sometimes I’ll even practice on a pillow and that is pretty fun too.
There are many ways to practice drums without a drum set, you can really get creative with it too! What are some ways that you practice without a drum set?
