Practice Playing the Drums Quietly

May 30, 2008
Drumming is a great art to master. Not only does it require a great deal of dexterity and coordination, but it also requires the drummer to really feel and get into the music that he is playing. The drum set is a great musical instrument that takes a lot of practice in order to become great at.

Sometimes, however, practicing may become a little bit of a problem if you do not have a music studio at your convenience. If you live in an apartment or close to neighbors, your practice sessions will make a great deal of noise and you may potentially become a nuisance and an annoyance to you neighbors and the people that you live with as well. In addition, you may have a busy schedule which only affords you to practice your drumming at night. Being noisy at night will upset the sleeping patterns of your neighbors and you may even be justly fined with a ticket from your local police department for disturbing the peace.

Do not fret too much. There are a couple of solutions that can afford you the ability to practice your drumming just about any time you want without disturbing anyone.

Drum Pad Silencers

Drum pad silencers are simple pads made out of a rubber-like material that you apply onto the top of your drums. These drum pad silencers absorb the sound that hitting the drums with your drumsticks make while at the same time still preserving a good amount of the same natural stick bounce and feel of your drum set. They even make these great silencer pads for the bass drum and cymbals.

Do not get me wrong, you will still create some noise while you are practicing with the drum pad silencers on. However, if you close your room door, your family will hardly hear a thing, and your neighbors will not hear a thing at all. So, with drum pad silencers, you can rock out on your drum set at any time of the day that you wish without disturbing the peace of anyone.

Rock Band

Have you heard of the video game Rock Band? Well, if you are a musician, than you should familiarize yourself with Rock Band. Granted, playing this video game is not really like playing in an actual rock band, the drum set in Rock Band comes pretty close to the real thing. The drum sequences in the video game are pretty awesome, and will test your drumming skills. These things are fairly quiet, but if you want it even quieter, they make drum pad silencers for the drum set made for Rock Band.

If you have got a set of headphones for your television and you have drum silencer pads, you are good to practice drumming with Rock Band almost at any time that you would like. It is a fun way to practice and test your coordination and dexterity.

So, these are just a couple of examples that should get you started with practicing your drumming quietly or as quietly as possible at the least. Rock on!
