Drums

The drum is a member of the percussion group of musical instruments. Drums consist of at least one membrane, called a drumhead or drum skin, that is stretched over a shell and struck, either directly with the player's hands, or with a drum stick, to produce sound. There is usually a resonance head on the underside of the drum, typically tuned to a slightly lower pitch than the top drumhead. Other techniques have been used to cause drums to make sound, such as the thumb roll.


Drums are the world's oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments, and the basic design has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years. More recently, it has been found that playing rhythms improves listening skills and increases children and teens' ability to focus for extended periods of time. Lastly, it is coomon to find the high demand of drummers .


One of the most popular instruments in the world, the basic drum techniques and skills can be learnt in an afternoon, but can take months or years of practice and dedication to master. With time and practice habits along with the right kind of guidance, imparting the skills, you can learn rhythm and fundamentals, and thus eventually include more complex rhythms and patterns into your drumming.
