Practicing Without Making Noise – For Drummers

The excitement and power of playing drums at full volume is hard to replicate in any other activity. There are times however when playing loud is not possible.

Here are some options which will allow you to play with full power but at near zero volume. The first option is to soundproof a room. This can be done with little expense or work. I’ve seen people do this with egg cartons, foam, sound baffling, etc. The beauty of this is that you can also rehearse a band and even record in your soundproof space without disturbing others. A second method is to play a practice pad or a set of practice pads. This is especially useful when working on hand techniques. A third option is to play an electronic kit with headphones. This is very helpful when working on 4 limb exercises and also when in creative mode as the electronic kit is ideal for experimentation. The fourth option is a method created at Power Drumming Canada called “ Off Kit Training”.  This is a fantastic way to practice all 4 limbs anywhere, anytime.

If you are dedicated to practicing and improving, you can literally do it anywhere without disturbing others. If you’re a beginner drummer and your parents don’t want the noise of having a drummer in the house, let them read this blog-I hope it helps you overcome their concerns.

Power Drumming Canada coaches beginner, intermediate and advanced drummers to be the best they can be.
