i believe na basta't gusto mo, may pag-asa ka pa.
tips na mabibigay ko, youtube, sobrang daming resources jan. drum lessons, patterns/grooves, at libre pa.
i-visualize mo ang gusto mong matutunan and doon ka mag-focus.
kung kaya ng budget, get a drum teacher para matuto kang magbasa ng drum tabs. kung gusto mo maging session drummer, makakatulong yan.
learn the basics. basic beats and ESPECIALLY the rudiments.
magiging madali na ang halos lahat basta ma-master mo ang rudiments.
:-D
don't lose hope.

I think no one is too old to play drums. You just have to have dedication and determination to learn. Practice Practice Practice.  :-D

parang bike lang ang drumming eh.. once you know it, you'll never forget about it...

ako nga 1993 nag start - 2nd year high school..front act here, front act there, CLub Dredding here, Yosh Cafe there, then nadisband noong 1998

after 10 years... 2008 nag balik sa drumming... pero in between those 10 long years may paghawak ng kit every now and then..(minsan nag rent sa jamming studio na kahit mag isa lang, minsan yung church sa tapat ng auto supply shop namin nakiki jam ako sa mga bata or everyday pag nakarinig ng sounds high chance mag AIR DRUMS)

all in all, I got better.. minsan age makes a big difference... dati Fernando kit ngayon Ludwig kit... bukas Tama... hahaha..

ako din 30+ na. napagtripan lang namin bumili ng wife ko ng drums last year. Ayos lang yun, mas masarap nga yung feeling pag sariling pera mo yung ipinambili mo. yung progress ng skills will depend on how much you practice IMO. :-D

practice lang.. don't lose hope.. mas madali kang matututo kung laging laman ng isip mo is mag-progress rather than thinking it's too late.. set inspirational motivations and goals to help yourself out! KAYA MO YAN!!!

practice+ positive midset = progress! :wink:

Its not a matter of how old you are man. Its about how much time and effort you put into practice.

Checkout this drummer. Billy Kilson. He started out late but hes one of the most sought after drummers in the industry.

hope this helps

Hi narz,

22 years of age is still actually pretty young.  :-D

IMHO, age is not a factor. What matters most is your motivation and dedication. even a 70 year old (provided he/she still can, physically speaking) could learn to play the drums if he/she is that motivated and dedicated enough to do so.

like what they say, even old dogs can learn new tricks.  :wink:

and dont worry about making "habol" to our more experienced drummers here. learn at your own pace. most of all... enjoy!  :-D

hope this helps,
kokok

kung tlagang desidido ka cgurado matutoto ka at madagdagan ang kaalaman mo sa pagdrumz mo...yung iba nga dyan late na natuto mas matanda tlga...talent and skills...at passion mo sa paggamit ng musical instrument...


also mas maganda kapag may experience na rin sa mga gig....mas mabilis ang angat mo...
