it won't hurt to get formal lessons cuz you can only learn so much on your own. just so you can be guided. I'm not a teacher or anything. I just learned a lot when I took supplemental lessons after more than a decade of drumming. it helped me develop my skill and playing more

I'm self-taught during my entire elementary and high school days. When I went to college, I was accepted in the U.P. Conservatory (percussion major). This is where I learned all the theories etc.

Sadly, Di ko natapos, tinamad na because I was hooked up with computer music. Got some "rakets" involving computer music, gusto ko work na agad.

But 'til now, lahat ng napag aralan ko formally sa U.P. e nagagamit ko. I can sight-read music sheets, I can write music scores, chord progressions, inversions, andaming benefits. MAS MAGANDA KUNG MAY FORMAL LESSONS TALAGA.

just to share lang na tuto ako mag drums arround 1st year highschool 14yrsold,
i started playing on snare and simple 8beats on drum set, self taught ako mga idol inspired by watching endless oldskul bands from beatles to lynard skynard,
rock n roll to heavy metal etc. pero im not saying na magaling ako.

now im already 22yrs old minsan may drum sessions kami ng ibang drumer d2 samen an 18yr old drummer can kick my butt out of the drum set because of my own flaws. i cant make a good ghost notes. im poor at cymbal works.

but i can rate my self on the middle but not on the point that i know all.

im happy when im learning something new and thats a fulfilment.
challenge kasi i need to learn it without anyones help, but may reference like youtube.

ive been into different band now already, lasting for months i personally leave because of personal work reasons but as they give out feedbacks out of my drum compositions their not super duper impress. but its just within what they need.

- learning is an never ending road as they say.
tagalog/filipino nalang plskthx.

i know someone locally, my friend Paul (KnK) isang beses nung doon ako nag-almusal sa tapsihan nila, natanong ko lang bigla kung pano ba siya natuto mag-drums, it was all self-taught, practice lang ng practice, rudiments.. yun.

so anyway - ako rin self taught. back in 2005 nung student pa ako, instead of going to school, dun ako tumatambay sa studio ng friend ko, walang nagjajam masyado kaya sinamantala ko na mag-drums ng mag-drums hahaha. libre pa at laging may inuman. heheh! ayun!  :-D

btw.. di na ako naka-graduate ng college dahil dun. hahaha. peace!

Dennis Chambers! damn! akalain mo un?! self-taught lang!
nabasa ko sa drumchannel.com last night while watching some interviews of him by Terry Bozzio. check niyo dito sa part 2 ng interview http://www.drumchannel.com/entertainment/13006.aspx. mababasa niyo sa right part na nagfflash. "Although he had no formal training, Dennis is well-known among drummers for his impressive technique and speed, and he is particularly regarded for his ability to play "in the pocket."

I'm  self taught drummer pero naglesson pa rin ako kay JP kasi sa opinion ko, everybody needs a professional help para mas ma-improve ang skills natin, oo magaling tayo sa self-taught skills natin, pero hindi ba tayo mas gagaling kung may magtuturo sa atin????

agree ako bro. actually maganda yung self taught, kasi hindi mo alam kung kailan ka na ba marunong o magaling. you always try to discover something new :lol:

pero sa palagay ko Gusto ko pa magconservatory kasi syempre, along the way dun sa pagaaral mo, baka may technique or kung ano ka mang nakuha na maaaring harmful pala... at least macocorrect pa yun :-D

ako din self taught, actually nung binili ng tatay ko ung tambol eh hindi pa talaga ako marunong, as in zero knowledge sa drums, naaalala ko nun pati yung mounted toms eh baliktad pagkakaset up ko, at sobrang tunog lata lahat..bale inupuan ko lang sya tas hindi ko namalayan eh ngdrudrums na pala ako, until now hindi ko mafigure out kung panu ako natuto..hehe, baka kako late bloomer lang ung pagiging tambolista ko, 2nd yr. college na kasi ako natuto eh.. :-D

ngaun nagtuturo ako ng drums, drum tab gamit ko as introduction sa basic beat, para lang masanay pumalo yung bata (10yrs ol nag youngest na naturuan ko),..

hehe, merun akong 4 students ngaung summer ser, nakapagturo nadin ako ng 45 yrs. old, at doctor..hehehe..try mo tab ituro ser parang pang intro lang sa basic beat...ayus ung batang me interest, meron kasi akong student dati yung nanay ang interesado ung anak eh pilit..hehe

eto basic beat na tab ser,

HH|x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-| (hi-hats)
SD|-----o--------o---| (snare drum)
BD|o---------o-------| (bass drum)
     1 +  2  +  3 + 4 +

mejo hindi pantay pantay ser, sana magets mo..hehe,

-ang ginagawa ko eh HH muna down to BD,

-emphasize mo kung saang count ang strike ng bawat isa, for example ung snare eh sa counts 2 and 4 ang strike..

-(+ is read as "and") bala ang counting nyan ser eh 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and..

naglecture nako ser, ot na.. :-D
**iba din kasi ang satisfaction na nararamdaman ko kapag ung isang bata o matanda na zero knowledge sa drumming eh pagkatapos palang ng 1hour eh may alam ng basic beat.. :-D

eto para hindi OT..hehe

-mas advisable mag formal drum lessons pagka me alam ka na sa drums mas tipid..di ka na dadaan sa beginner lessons..basa nalang ng nota aaralin mo.. :-D

Self taught din ako mga brader. wala kasi akong pera pang formal lesson. kung may libre sana jan... :lol: haha! madami kasi talagang advantages pag may drum teacher ka, one thing dun, mas direct ang learning mo...meaning, tanong-sagot agad...isa pa dun, complicated grooves can be easier to understand kasi kaya break down yun ng teacher mo sayo na hindi ka mababaliw ng husto at napakadami pang iba. :-)

pero syempre parang give and take yan...nasa absorption din siguro yan ng student at nasa pag simplify ng teacher mo.  Maganda din naman maging self taught basta ikaw mismo, you give time on your drumming at open minded ka din. Take time on listening to different genres, other drummers at syempre, dapat ikaw din mismo, naghahanap ng concepts at gumagawa ng theories of your own to make your drumming much enjoyable and easier. Wala naman tama at mali sa drumming hangga't ikaw mismo ang nagsabi na sa sarili mo na mali yung ginagawa mo. It really doesn't matter how you start, what matters most is how you end.  :-)
