Beginner's Guide To Learning The Percussion

Percussion is a very interesting group of musical instruments. Do you want to learn how to play them? If so, you need to do research before anything else. Start your learning journey by reading our Beginner’s Guide To Learning The Percussion with this article. 

Here is our top 10 list of the best facts about percussion.

Choosing the right percussion instrument is very important, especially for beginners. But there are so many options out there, it can be very hard to choose for yourself. Don’t worry, because our team of experts here at Ted’s List will help you every step of the way. 

There are two methods of learning the percussion. You can watch instructional videos on the internet, buy instructional DVDs, or learn via a mobile app. Or you could go for in-person lessons with a dedicated teacher. In learning how to play percussion, however, it’s critical to pick which learning method fits your preferences perfectly. 

It’s vital to do research on an instrument before deciding to learn it. Our Beginner’s Guide To Learning The Percussion is a great place for starters. It is a comprehensive resource for learners everywhere. However, it’s sometimes just best for you to jump in and play. We can help give you a confidence boost to do just that. 

Learning percussion requires you to master percussion technique early on. It will be an easier path to great musicianship if you make sure to get the technique right early. However, getting it wrong will make you run into all sorts of problems. If you want to avoid that, focus on mastering technique.

Playing the percussion is an altogether different skill compared to reading percussion sheet music. Consider this similar to how reading and writing always go together but are still two different skills. That’s how it is with instruments and sheet music reading.  We recommend categorising these skills into two so you can make things easier. 

Musicians, like everybody else, have good days and bad days. But the thing that separates great musicians from good ones is their knack to motivate themselves to practise even during the bad days. If you want to learn that, you can start by reading our guide to practising percussion.

Who Can Assist You Make Decisions?

Your search is over! The Founder of Ted’s List, Robert Emery, has a very busy career as an international conductor, record producer and pianist. Our goal isn’t to sell you pricey classes that you’ll never use. Our objective is to help you. Just like Robert wanted to help his son, Teddy, by obtaining honest guidance from buddies who are actually world-class professional musicians.

Alarming basic fact coming up: I guess you didn’t know that there is simply no responsibility for your instrumental instructor to have been professionally trained. But surely they require some kind of certification to be able to take peoples money? Nope. If you wanted to, you could turn around tomorrow and call yourself a music instructor! Crazy isn’t it…

You’d be amazed at the number of percussion teachers that don’t know the difference between a tuned percussion and an unpitched percussion! So that’s where our specialists come in. And no, contrary to various other websites which shall remain nameless, our experts are real-life, performing, qualified performers. They are at the top of their game either in the UK or America. Some are even names you’ll recognise.
