So many would be drummers never take the plunge because they’re intimidated by what gear to get. They procrastinate on their dreams, never taking that first step. This only fills us with deep regret later down the road.
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer
You don’t even need to sticks to begin! All you need is an open mind, a voice, and a lot of heart. Everyone’s path is different. There’s no rules to this game!
Figuring out what equipment to get when you decide to dive into the drumming game can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be this way. The reason so many drummers fail, is they skip the steps of building their foundation first. Too many drummers go right to the big expensive gear and skip these steps. Let’s dissect each piece, and KIS: Keep It SIMPLE!
- First we start with your ETHOS: that personal spark of what drives you to drum in the first place.
- Next, we’ll use our most ancient instrument THE VOICE. Singing the drums first sets you up for coordination once you’re ready.
- Now we can start hitting things! We get the sticks in your hands with a practice pad you can call your own, taking up almost no space.
Now we’re ready for THE REAL THING by finding the right acoustic or electric set so you can rock out daily. It’s a myth that drums take up an entire room and are so loud your neighbours will hate you. Finding low volume drums that hardly take up any space is easy!
“At the end of the day, a legitimate excuse and a bad excuse serve the same purpose: to justify failure and minimize the amount of shame we feel for not figuring out a way to overcome the obstacles in our way.” Rick Ross
A good or bad excuse still equals out to the same thing: failure to take action. This means the ‘resistance’ has beaten you, and you’ll stay in that place of low grade regret that only grows over time.
But now, because momentum is on your side, these obstacles never paralyze you to take ACTION to become your best self trough drumming. Let’s get that wood in your hands and moving to your favourite music today. There’s nothing stopping you to feed your joy, and invest in YOU.
