Why drums sheet music for beginners?

Yes, I know: Learning to read drum notes might not be the most popular part of your musical journey.

Some drummers even state that they are a threat to your creativity. (Sounds familiar to music theory, right?)

If you ask me, the latter is nothing to worry about. Just make sure you don’t get too reliant on your drums sheet music.

Instead, use your PDF notes as a reminder of what you’re going to play. They are a powerful tool helping you to understand what you’re doing around the kit.

If you successfully learned a groove or fill for example, put away the sheet music once in a while. Play the exercise by heart and find out whether you are able to really rock it.
