Songs that are easy to play do not make them inferior. Remember that practice makes perfect, and no song is an easy song at the start but with consistency and determination, you’ll make progress. But then you’ll ask, “how does one become a better drummer fast? How can I progress quicker as a drums beginner?

Develop muscle memory. Never take the basics for granted. Just with any other skill, it is important to learn the fundamentals of drums before moving on to other techniques. Did we also mention that timing is crucial? As a drummer, you’re the timekeeper of the band and therefore, learning to keep time would not only benefit you but also the people that you play with.

Also, don’t be pressured to find your own style. You don’t necessarily have to find your style when you’re just starting out to learn how to play the drums. Developing your personal style will take time. Learn the basics as a drums beginner and eventually it will be easier when you advance your skills. You don’t want to cultivate bad habits and still have them even as an advanced drummer.
