Do bear in mind that these topics are quite subjective, and your drum teacher, if you are working with one, may have a different view on what is best for you at this stage.

The techniques used in this video have helped successfully develop hundreds of students at our teaching facility in San Diego, and subscribers worldwide on Drum Ambition. If you are not currently working with a local drum teacher, we recommend that you read this article.
