Learning The Drums: Why You Should Learn To Play The Drums

What is a Drum Set?


A Drum Kit is a collection of drums, cymbals, and other percussion which are set up on stands to be played by a single person with drum sticks. Some famous drummers include: Phil Collins, Ringo Star, Harry Judd (McFly) and more.


Drums are the backbone to any song. They set the volume, intensity, and beat of the song. For example, the drummer can change a soft and mellow verse into a heavy/punchy chorus by changing the hardness and speed when they play.
