9 Myths About Drumming

According to Music Australia, drumming has become a part of our everyday lives. Whether you play at home or go to a club, chances are you’ve heard someone say they love drumming. Drummers are sometimes stereotyped as loud, obnoxious, and annoying. In reality, drumming is a complex art form that requires practice, patience, and discipline.

Drumming has become very popular worldwide. Drumming can be done alone or with other instruments such as guitar, bass, and keyboard. Drumming is a great way to exercise your body and relax simultaneously,” says Flynn Ross, a musical instrument specialist at Guitar Tuners—Australia’s top supplier of musical instruments.

Drumming is a fun and relaxing hobby that anyone can enjoy. There are several myths surrounding drumming, but they only apply to some drummers.

1. The Physicality Is Extreme

Drums are no more physically demanding to practice than other instruments. Still, all musical instruments have a maximum volume that may be easily reached before you break it and start wasting your time or showing off.

2. The Key Is To Hit Things

Drumming revolves around striking objects, but a piano, another percussion instrument, does the same. It’s not the same as hitting something as hard as you can when you strike it to get the best sound out of it.

3. Drummers Perspire Heavily

They used to since the club had low ceilings and they were flanked by infernal floor lighting or a row of incandescent lamps dangling above them. The drummer was inches away from getting a tan, thanks to being on a riser. LED drummers no longer sweat more than anyone else on stage due to the environment’s low heat. Keep up with technological advancements while remaining alert in the back.

4. Drumming Can’t Be Practised At Home Without Making Others Mute

False. Practising surfaces include books, pads, and electronic drums. Also, your sister’s violin or brother’s trumpet, which requires natural playing to generate a good tone, can quickly drown out the appealing pattering of sticks on a practice pad or electronic set.

5. Drums Cannot Be Played On Your Own

That is no longer the case in the virtual world. Some YouTube drummers who “stay at home” have a business coaching other drummers online.

6. Drums Aren’t Musical Instruments

It is true that drums “have no pitch”. This is typically cited as support for this claim. On the other hand, it has an undefined or approximate pitch. The ear can tell which drum has a higher pitch than the other.

7. It Will Only Take Additional Time Away From The Books To Study The Drums In High School Or College

Maybe, but those hours will probably improve academic performance if they aren’t wasted. There is a growing body of research on the many advantages of learning any musical instrument, including patience, discipline, confidence, attention to detail, and coordination.

8. Drummers Are Not Musicians

It’s a prevalent misconception that drummers don’t need to understand how music functions. This is false; many drummers have at least rudimentary proficiency on a second instrument.

9. You’ll Experience Hearing Loss

Modern in-ear monitoring provides a level of control that allows you to have whatever sound you choose in your ears at any volume. If you turn the monitors up to their maximum volume, the drums sound fantastic, but there is a risk of ear injury. You should give it some thought.
