How To Read Drum Music

If I know the parts of the drums, how do I learn how to read the drum music? All I'm doing is playing it how I hear it.


Hi, Devon--

You came to the right place! First of all, you can go to How To Read Drum Tabs for some basics.

Then try a simple drum tab from Almost Free Drum Tabs

You can get a free "key" on that page which tells you what the symbols mean--which part of the drum set to play.

You can even order the drum music to ANY song you want here: Drum Tabs on Demand

Have fun and if you have questions, please let me know. I will look forward to hearing about your progress!
