Start to play the drums
If you have decided to start playing the drums, one of the first things you need to practice are coördination exercises. As a drummer you want to be able to hit 2 or more drums simultaneously. Practice these twelve coördination exercises and try to make the drums and cymbals really sound together.
If you don’t know how to read music you can just watch the video at the end of this post.
Listen to the exercises and try to play along. I play every exercise four times.
Don’t try to rush through the coördination exercises. In order to make everything sound together you should practice them really slow at first. Once you start to feel comfortable with the exercises you can start speeding up just little by little.
