Enthusiasm is your fuel to improve your drumming. You probably spend time working on grooves and fills, playing along to recordings, searching YouTube for videos, attending concerts, practicing from method books, and jamming with other musicians. These are all key ingredients to becoming a good drummer. But the way in which you divide your time among them and how you structure your practice routine determines the rate of your development. Here you’ll find some suggestions to help you get the most out of your practice time. I recommend that you read through the article twice. Use the first time to understand how to plan a practice routine effectively. After the second read, you should fill out the practice chart. Make copies of the blank chart, so you can update it as you improve.
