Unearthing Hidden Gems: Revisit Your Drumming Practice

June 14, 20242 min read

Ever feel like you have a treasure trove of partially developed skills sitting dormant? We've all been there – we start practicing something new, have some initial fun, but then move on before truly mastering it. The result?A collection of under-developed techniques that could be drumming gold!

The Power of Revisited Practice:

Let's face it, there's a certain allure to the "shiny new object" syndrome in drumming. We get excited about a new technique, explore it a bit, and then something else catches our eye. But what about those partially learned skills? They have the potential to become valuable weapons in your drumming arsenal!

Unearthing Your Buried Skills:

Here's the challenge: take some quiet time to reflect on your drumming practice. Ask yourself:

  • What skills have I dabbled in, but haven't fully developed?

  • Are there any techniques I learned but haven't incorporated into my playing?

Jot down these rediscovered skills – they're your hidden drumming gems!

Benefits of Revisited Practice:

The beauty of revisiting partially learned skills lies in efficiency. You've already invested some initial effort – now it's time to refine and truly own those techniques. Here's what you gain:

  • Increased Efficiency: Because you have a foundation, mastering the skill takes less time than starting from scratch.

  • Expanded Skillset: Each newly developed technique broadens your overall drumming vocabulary.

  • Enhanced Creativity: More tools in your toolbox lead to greater creative possibilities in your drumming.

  • Momentum and Progress: Focusing on partially learned skills feels less daunting and keeps your practice sessions productive.

The Takeaway:

So, drummers, unleash the potential within your drumming practice! Take a moment to reflect on those under-developed techniques. By revisiting and refining them, you'll transform them from forgotten skills into valuable drumming assets.
