In the Drum Rudiment System , Lionel Duperron discusses how to practice drums without drums.
Drums are loud, which puts a hold on how loud we can practice and when we practice.
Here are some tips on Drumming without Drums.
- Listen to music. Listen deeply to what the drummer is doing and visualize yourself doing it.
- Visualize drum patterns in your mind.
- Practice tapping your hands and feet. (80% of your practice can be accomplished this way).
- Practice singing patterns along with a metronome.
- Use a GripMaster.
