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. Read our article how to choose the best electronic drum set for your needs.

Which drum songs should I learn as a beginner?

There are many great beginner drum songs. We recommend finding a song that you like that isn’t too fast and that uses a basic drum beat. Here are a few suggestions:
– We will Rock You by Queen
– Roar by Katy Perry
– Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
– Boulevard of Broken Dreams or 21 Guns by Green Day
– My Girl by the Temptations.

Is it important to learn proper drum technique and rudiments?​

It is possible to play the drums without learning technique.  That being said, learning technique is a good idea because it helps avoid injuries and improve technically as a drummer.  By learning rudiments,  drummers can improve their technique. Musiprof drum teacher Elijah has written two great articles on drum technique.
