Jenny for starters you'll need to learn rudiments. A bit hard to learn at first, but with practice you get better at it and then you'll get up to speed. I suggest learning the Moeller method.

There are 17 basic rudiments. Altogether there are 40. If you can read music here is a sample of what it would look like.

The answer to teaching yourself is to first understand HOW you learn, personally. Different people react to different stimulus.

Online lessons are about as correct and thorough as wikipedia, so learn from that at your own risk and remember: Because your mistakes need to be seen before they can be corrected, there is NO substitute for a teacher.

Re: How can I teach myself?

Through my schooling years I've also learned more from the text books than in the classroom from the instructor. At school we reviewed what we learned at home from the books and then graded upon what we learned at home. I also learned more doing my home work and research on my own rather than following the school teacher's criteria that has to be followed by shcool's rules.

Instructors only get you on the right track to get started. There are lots of DVD instructions out there that help you to learn the essentials to get started with drumming. Beginners don't need some one looking over their shoulders to mimic them.

Wikipedia may not be the perfect place for finding things, but it's better than nothing. A good $2000 encyclopedia is quite pricey. Even more if you want them leather covered. I bought one and it did help my sons get through college. But they only used them infrequently.

Nothing wrong with paying a drum instructor for I do it for free when needed to help some kids in the drumming world. Instructional videos can be reviewed over and over again without having to pay for more instructions.

Not everyone can afford it.

Talking Re: How can I teach myself?

teaching oneself is great once you get a strong foundation in the basics of drumming-- a great book is basic drumming by joel rothman- stick control by george lawerence stone-- bass drum control by ted kerr--- syncopation also by ted kerr will give you a great start . also practice with a metronome --practicing 1/4 notes, 1/8th notes, 1/16th notes ---starting at 40bpm and stay on that tempo for one week and every week after increase it by 4bpm and after 1yr you'll be up to 120bpm. The reason i say this is because when i started practising i devoloped bad habits and wanted to play right away and wante to play like the pros like neil peart- jeff pocaro-- Danny Saraphine (chicago)- well when i was 25 1990 i received a letter from the man himself about practising and how to become a good drummer (danny saraphine) wrote as the quote above, and dont rush anything, listen to music you really like--and never be in a rush to join a band, bands are not a great enviroment to learn- if you can find a professional in your area that would be great- and never go to someone who shows you more by him playing then you playing on the kit. Fortunately i live across the border from Detroit and had many professionals available. IF you live near a university with a music degree program in music with a Percussion major this should help some one should be able to help-- I know many cant afford Professionals but it's worth the investment-- they will be able to monitor you and will help you not to develope bad habits . i hope thiswill help you.
