Want to be a Drummer? Here's our brief guide to the basics..

When i hear drums, i think of Animal from the Muppet show :-)

Animal had three styles of drumming; Loud, Louder & Deafening.....

'Animal love drums' 


But, seriously. Drumming is awesome. Picture yourself sitting on that drum throne (stool) with sticks in hands and making all sorts of sounds and rhythms. Every boy or girls dream and Adults can learn too.


So, you might be asking yourself questions like; How can i learn to play drums when i have no rhythm? Or, it's costs a lot to buy a drum kit.......or i don't have time etc. etc.



Well, having some form of natural rhythm certainly helps but rhythm can be learned and with some practice, you could find yourself sitting behind the drum kit at your friends next gig,  or playing along to your favorite songs and impressing those family members.



There are many price options that cover most budget. From Electronic Drum Kits to Acoustic Drum Kits ( standard drum kit as most people would know them). We can help you work within your budget. Email us sales@shopmusko.com 



Time..... So time is a funny thing. How long do you spend scrolling through your phone or tablet (maybe you are right now as you are reading this, however this is educational so that doesn't count as wasting time!) ?

Borrow time from an activity like scrolling through social media, or watching video's online....there..... now you have 20 - 30 minutes already!
