  • Give Your Shins a Rest

    Posted on August 14, 2014 by Ian Bee

    Ok folks, this month we turn away from the more mental aspects of drumming to look at technique: foot technique to be exact. But we are looking at it for a specific reason...

    I have had new students recently, who have been self taught, who have complained of shin and muscular pain where the front of the leg meets the foot – about where you would tie shoelaces. So this month we are going to look at the solution.

  • IT DOESN'T FIT!

    Posted on July 4, 2014 by Ian Bee

    I made this mistake I’m about to regale you with, probably about twenty five years ago – which apart from making me feel old – I’m glad to say, I never forgot – and am able to warn you guys about it, in the hope you will avoid making the same faux pas!

    Ok, so confession time!

    A long time ago in a practice room, far, far away...

  • IT’S NOT JUST NOTES THAT HAVE VALUE – OPEN YOUR MIND!

    Posted on June 2, 2014 by Ian Bee

    I can’t stand metal, scream metal, death metal, rap, drum ‘n’ bass, punk and a few others. They are all hideous to my ears – but they are not rubbish, they’re not ‘crap’, they’re not talentless. All of these genres have a valid and important place in music – they may be the last thing I’d ever consider adding to my Spotify playlist, but each has as much value as the rest.

    Disliking something does not strip it of its value!

  • PHYSICAL VERSUS AUDIBLE - A GREAT WAY TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF!

    Posted on May 2, 2014 by Ian Bee

    As we all know, practice is the key to success (in pretty much all things), but sometimes we hit a rut, or just don't seem to be improving. It happens to the best of us! And that's when the passion for our drumming, the motivation, can sometimes dwindle. Frustration sets in and the idea of practice, because we feel it isn't working, just doesn't appeal.

    So how about this for a morale booster when you find yourself in this situation? It's all about the difference between what your limbs might be feeling, and the sound your limbs are actually producing (well, the drums, if you get my drift!).
