Yep. This was the deal I had to agree to with mom and dad after they let me flub around a bit on some drum hand me downs before they got me my first proper kit 35 years ago: taking lessons. And they were right in doing so. I needed direction at 12 years old as do a lot of beginners. Good luck over there and welcome to the forum!My Best recommendation is to get lessons from a competent drum instructor. If you're series about playing drums, you don't want to accumulate bad techniques from the very beginning.
