What equipment do I need for my drum lessons Montreal?

You only need 3 things before you show up to your first drum lesson: a pair of drum sticksa note-book, and a smile!  The teacher will provide the drum-set, unless you have signed up for home-lessons. In general, it is a good idea for students to own a drum-set for home practise, but this is not required.

Electronic or acoustic drum-set?

The biggest question is whether to buy and electronic drum-set or a traditional acoustic one.  It is best to learn on an acoustic drum-set because the student learns to understand “touch” and how to bring the sound out of the instrument.  That said, many city dwellers simply cannot have an instrument as loud as an acoustic drum-set in their homes, so in many cases an electronic drum-set is the way to go.  Electronic drum-sets are a lot of fun and offer a quieter and worthwhile alternative to an acoustic kit.

The advantages of an electronic drumset and an acoustic drumset

How much does it cost to buy a drum-set?

The average price of a beginner-intermediate drum-set ranges between $300-$1000. For more information read How much does a drum-set cost: a beginner’s guide. 

Are you a Beginner Drummer?

The best way to learn drums is to find a teacher that can make learning drums fun.  A good teacher will try to understand your musical tastes a suggest songs that inspire you to practise.  That said, there are several classic songs that are great to learn no matter what your musical tastes.  Our Teacher Elijah put together a blog post called 5 easy Drum Songs for Beginners to get you playing your first beat in less than 5 minutes!  The post includes a free video and PDF download to help you practice.

What About Drum Technique?

Learning drum-set technique is one of the best things to work on in order to improve your abilities as a drummer. Technique is best learnt using a practise pad.  We recommend getting a 12-14 pad because it fits nicely inside a snare stand.  The reason drummers use practise pads is because they maximize rebound, they are quiet (so you can practise in front of the T.V. 😉 and they allow you to hear the tone of the stick.

Example Rudiment: The Paradiddle

An example of the paradiddle in eighth notes

The most common drum rudiment for learning technique is the paradiddle.  It’s a simple pattern that is easy to learn, however what’s important when learning technique is so much the pattern itself but the form and grip that is used.  To learn more about learning paradiddles visit our page 9 Awesome Paradiddle Variations.

The Moeller Technique

The Moeller Technique is one of the best ways to learn how to play fast and relaxed on the drums.  This method utilizes a whipping motion which allows for power and control using minimal muscular tension.  To learn more about the Moeller Method visit our blog post on the topic: 3 Fundamental Moeller Technique Exercises.
