I'm relatively new to drumming. I used to play when I was younger, and then I couldn't play anymore. But now 6 years later, I'm picking it up again. I've been playing snare this year in school. An hour a day five days a week. I go to an art school so we practice a lot. I've been playing the set for about two or three months. I can read music pretty well. And I can play rock beats. I can't do fills to save my life, and my speed leaves a lot to be desired. I can't play and jazz or swing which I'm very interested in.
I have this practice regime that I'm going to start daily, with the occasional day that I might be a bit too busy:
Drum warm up
(working from: http://www.onlinedrummer.com/forum/i...th-andy-ziker/
) - 5 minutes
(working from: Ultimate Realistic Rock by Carmine Appice) - 25 minutes
play with time/reading drum charts/working with variations
(working from: Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials 1.0 book) - 25 minutes
Fastest way to get faster
(working from: http://www.drumeo.com/
) - 25 minutes
(working from: The Art of Bop Drumming and Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials 1.0 book) - 20 minutes
total practice time.
If anybody has any ideas or suggestions, please let me know. Thanks to all of you!
