Default Re: Beginners practice regime

Again, like others have said, get a teacher.

Your practice regime looks pretty good to me(but I am just relearning drums myself). A teacher will give you proper guidance and direction with the tools you have at your disposal.

For instance, I had stick control but other than just practicing the patterns in there, I didn't really have much of an idea to do with it other than start moving the patterns around the kit. My teacher now has me working on the first page, keeping time with left foot on 2 and 4, and playing straight fours on my foot. Then once I have mastered this, he suggested I gone on to using a bossa nova pattern on my right foot. I never even knew what a bossa nova pattern was before.
