Drumming is to coordinate the movements of the arms and legs, that’s all.
- No need to read music
- No need to know the musical notes
- You do not need the gift for music
Learning to play the drums is more to the sport than to the theoretical study. It’s like learning to swim: you have to train your body to move your arms and legs. Not worth reading books on the subject, to learn to swim you have to get wet.
Similarly, it takes practice to learn to play the drums, you need to “train” members. Are just two steps to learn:
- Understand the movement (mentally), assimilate it.
- Perform the movement.
The Baterna course teaches you how to understand and execute various rhythms: rock, reggae, country and waltz, among others. Being a 100% practical course , each class has detailed instructions and two MP3 files for you to download and listen to the rhythm while running.
And the best part is that you do not need a battery . The process is to “read” the pace, hear it and move to run it. Any hit on the legs, on a desk, in the car’s steering wheel or on a real drum;motion is the same.
To start the course, read the instructions below and already start Lesson 1. Download the MP3 and get ready to make a noise. Within minutes you will be playing!
The playing position is exactly the same that is used to type on the computer.
- Sit on a low chair. The feet should be flat on the floor.
- Let your arms loose beside the body with open hands resting on your thighs, palm down.
The movement is very simple. Just hit with the palm thigh and hit the ground, mimicking the movements made on a real drum.
- Tap the right hand on the right thigh, left hand on left thigh. No need to beat strong, the important thing is to execute the movement.
- The trampled is like on the car accelerator, the heel stays on the ground and the toe moves. Only the right foot is used. Avoid Carpe floor because it makes no noise in the trampled. Nor is it necessary to step on strong, but I know you will do just that;)
The battery is an instrument made up of several “parts”: box, hi-hat, cymbals, bass drum, tom-tom and deaf. All the rhythms of this course use only the three basic parts.
Attention: If you are left-handed (a) , reverse the hands in the instructions to follow, hitting the hi-hat with the left and the box with the right. The “good” hand is always the hi-hat, which marks the time. But the right hand still in his right leg, and his left hand on his left leg, do not cross your arms. The bass drum also changes, step with the left foot.
Lesson 1 – Punk Rock
|Download MP3: training , normal rhythm .
Punk rock is the very basics. Simple rhythm used in the songs of the Ramones and other rock bands. The pace alternating tapping the enclosure and the bass drum ( okay tum tum’re okay tum … ), with the hi-hat marking the progress (time).
Let’s start playing
Count to four aloud (or mentally) continuously and repetitively: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 … Slowly count trying to keep pace, without accelerating or braking.
- For convenience, you can use a clock and counting every second.
- You can also shake my head every count, as when listening to good music. This will help keep the pace.
- Curiosity: This count is “time” music, the “driving” the pace.
Now look at the rate table. The hi-hat (” tss “) appears in all the numbers, then every time you speak a number at the same time hit in the thigh with his right hand. Follow counting and tapping: one two three four one two …
Look in the second row of the table, the box (” ok “) should be beat with number 1. Now in addition to hitting the right hand on each number, which you are already doing, as the one you will also hit at the same time the left hand.
So in 1 hit both hands at the same time (remember, one in each thigh) and 2, 3 and 4 only hit the right. The knock on the box is called the “strong beat” rhythm is it that stands out in the music. So the count, use a stronger tone to pronounce the “one” to remember that. Looks like this: A two three four ONE two three … Practice this beat for a while.
Curiosity: How strong beat (in the box) takes place every four beats in driving (hi-hat), this rate is called pace four times.
Using the foot
There is still use the foot and now will complicate. The last line of the table is the bass drum (“tum “) and it only appears in 3. So you keep doing the pace using both hands and when you get 3 you step on the floor with the right foot while hit with right hand (hi-hat).
Tip: Do not worry if catch everything in time to step on the foot, it is normal
In other words, the left hand and the right foot (cash and bass drum, ” okay “and” tum “) are alternating 1 and 3, and the right hand you turn on the autopilot and forget it, always beating 1 to 4.
Speed is not important, do slowly. What matters is you understand the pace, put him in the head and coordinate members to beat and step at the right time. At the beginning will have some “choking”, fought and beat at the wrong time, but progress is fast and soon you will be doing correctly.
Touch watching the MP3
Now that you have practiced alone and mentalizou the order of beats, try to follow the training MP3 for setting the pace. He is very slow, so allow time for you to think that the next beat. It is important to play consciously, knowing what you’re doing.
With practice go accelerating gradually and you will find that the more touching, more natural pace will come out. Less and less you need to think to beat. Equal exchange the car in gear, you do without thinking.
When you can play along with the MP3 “normal pace” without error and without choking, can now say to friends who can play rock on drums!
Touch watching real songs
Follow a real drummer playing along with him a real music. These are some of using this pace you just learned. Look for them in your collection of CD / MP3 and quit playing!
- Hoobastank – The Reason (slowly almost stopping)
- Eminem – Without Me (easy to hear the battery and monitor)
- Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger (Rocky Music o /!)
- Ramones – I Do not Care

Lesson 2 – Reggae / Ska
|Download MP3: Reggae , Ska .
And then, quite touched rock in the previous class? Now let’s get some rest, slowing down and enjoying some “positive vibrations” directly coming from Jamaica.
Reggae needs no introduction, is that leeeeeeento pace, enjoyable to listen to relax and enjoy the beach. Have ska reggae is a fast, one Bob Marley in a hurry – and very excited!
The part that interests us, the basic beat of both is the same, the only difference being the speed. Reggae is slow, ska is fast. So learning this beat you have added two more rhythms to his repertoire.
Understanding the pace
Reggae is a broken rhythm, which lack the driving beats (hi-hat, ” tss “). Compare the rate table with the rock of the first class. Are almost the same, with the difference that in the reggae not hit the hi-hat 1 and 3.
Having beats unless a facilitator may seem at first, but it depends. Some people find this easy beat and others have difficulty running it.
Understanding the pace is relaxed, is the ta-tum-tum-tat switched the box and bass drum beats with the hi-hat in between. Note that there is no simultaneous hits.
Seeing another way, is the rock that you know, just hold your right hand 1 and 3, not hitting.
There are two ways to learn to play this rate, see which one suits you best.
This technique you already know, is the same as first class. Make verbal and slow count: one two three four one two three … When the 2 and 4, you hit the right hand (hi-hat). See the rate table if in doubt.
After a while practicing, add the beat with your left hand (cash) in the number 1. Remember that it is now only the left, is not to knock together with the right, as in the rock.
Feel the beat, feel the swing of the broken rhythm. Balance the body while playing, it facilitates learning and helps you keep the rhythm.
When playing well, add the foot, stepping on the number 3. If you really “Dove” in the rhythm, the foot will come at the right time without fail, filling the gap that was missing.
Try, practice, repeat. If balled all, go back to the beginning: right hand, then add the left and finally the foot. Hi-hat, box and kick in that order.
If you have tried a lot and it did not work, try the following technique.
Technique 2: Leaving driving last
This alternative technique simplifies the process of implementing leaving driving (hi-hat) aside from the beginning. It can be used in all the rhythms of course, if you find it easier than the traditional, use it forever.
Start with verbal counting. See the rate table and forget the first line (hi-hat). Focus only on the box and kick and note that they switch 1 and 3. Leave the quiet right hand resting on his thigh.In the first you’ll hit the left hand and 3 will hit the ground.
Without the hi-hat, reggae and rock are identical. It is the basic ta-tum-tum-tat. Touch and go for a while preparing for the second beat with the right hand. When you feel safe, robe. Easy right?
Now we need to hit the right at 4 too. Here you will take a choking, it is normal. Force, practice, go to improving the pace out all flawless.
Lose the numbers, speak the pace
At this point you’ve already chosen one of the two techniques and is playing the rhythm smoothly. If not, return to the beginning
Now it’s time to stop counting. The numbers are essential for learning, but once you understood and practiced rhythm, they are unnecessary.
Notice how many times the beats were referred to as “okay”, “tum” and “tss”? It’s the sound that each one makes in a real battery. Reggae can be described as ta-tss-tum-tss .
Stop the MP3 and be silent. Now instead of count to four, you will speak the rhythm:’re tss tss tum tum tss tss’re … Do not hit yet. Worry speaking pace flawless, continuously and without accelerating or braking.
- Talk even in good volume and excitement.
- Make every sound is like a virtual beat.
- Make a “tss” dragged, as the reggae is slow: tssssssssss.
- Make an “okay” dry.
- Make a “thump” serious and dragged (tummmmm) that vibrate your mouth.
- Note: If you get good at it, you can go on TV talent show;)
This is the best way to store a rhythm. You can touch it without looking at the table. Just speak it and follow up with the beats. There are two steps: to learn the rhythm you use the numbers and to store it you speak.
Try playing the pace following his speech. Over time you will condition your brain right hand strike has the sound of “tss” and the left is “okay”. This will greatly facilitate their learning.
Add a glow to your music
This step is optional, but if you can, make it worth.
Take a glass any and pen. Bata (lightly) with the pen on the side of the cup and listen. Yummy sound right? It could well be your “tss” … And why not?
Touch reggae using the cup to make the “tss” and notice how your pace is much more enjoyable.
But the glass is only legal in slow rhythms. To rock take a plastic bag market and place it on his right thigh. Hit normally and realize that the sound will be “tss” more like the real hi-hat.
Since we’re improvising, we will improve the Beat Box, so that it is dry and sharp. Place a magazine on the left thigh. An old magazine because you will hit it
To improve the “thump” of the bass drum, try combinations of shoes (rubber sole, wooden slipper, barefoot) and floors (tile, wood, concrete).
It’s a bizarre scene you with a bag and a magazine on the thighs, touching an imaginary battery? Of course it is! But try and feel the pleasure of playing.
Music to accompany
I’ll owe a fat list of songs because I do not like reggae. Ska I really enjoy, but I only have skapunk music in my collection, which is faster and dirty.
- Bob Marley – Could You Be Loved
- Paralamas do Sucesso – Ska
- Titans – Sonífera Island
- Outrage Wear – Sloth
- War – Why Can not We Be Friends
So, which of the two techniques did you find easier? He tried to play with the cup and the bag?What is your favorite combination shoe and floor? Share your experience!
Lesson 3 – Country / Hardcore
|Download MP3: training , normal rhythm .
This is the simplest rate of travel. It is not necessarily the easiest, because it varies from person to person. But why have four hits in just two times (only counts up to 2), is the simplest.
But do not underestimate the simplicity of the beat, as it is used in several different rhythms.
The country and the hardcore are two rhythms that use and abuse this beat, even running it at the same speed. So what’s the difference between them? The other instruments and lyrics
Other examples of use of this rhythm are those circus music and lively and accelerated. And polka! Hey!
Speaking of speed, if taken to the extreme speed that pace can be used in metal music (and its various sub-categories).
The tranquility of reggae to hardcore hectic, here we go!
I count only up to two?
Yes, this is a rate of two times. Rather than count to four as we did in previous lessons, just now count to two. You can start now: 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 …
Remember: The count should be slow, continuous and repetitive, without accelerating or braking.
Now just follow the table with the pace:
- First hit the hi-hat (right hand) both 1 and 2.
- Then tap along the box (left hand) 1.
- When you are confident step on the bass drum (right foot) 2.
It’s like a smaller version of the rock of the first class. It is the ta-tum hi-hat with the accompanying always, every beat. For that matter, so are running rhythm correctly, rather than tell, speak the pace :’re tum tum’re okay tum’re …
Remember: The market bag and the old magazine still apply to improve the sound of the beats !
New technique: Playing by the balance
Now, a timing alternative technique that can be used in this and other rhythms, when played in slow motion. Try it and see if it helps. Each person is better suited to a different technique. We already have, then speak now will rock
Start slowly counted as before: 1 2 1 2 1 2 … Now you will balance the body sideways, light and relaxed way. In the “one” balance to the left and the “two” to the right. Follow counting and shaking up this movement be natural.
Accustomed? So can now stop counting, but keep the balance, without changing the speed.
- When swinging to the left , you will hit the hand left (box).
- When swinging to the right , you will step on the foot right (bass drum).
Left left right right. Easy, right? Take the body’s own balance sheet to make a harmonic motion, where the beat / trampled is just a torso swing extension.
Feel the rhythm, take your time, enjoy the swings.
If you really dove into the movement, put the hi-hat on the pace will be easy. Hit the right hand together, when you swing to the left and to the right.
So, get it? Found it easy? Tell how it went!

Tips from students
- Asked by Lu Akemi
- My slipper has on the back a hard rubber bag? Perfect to do okay and you.
- Asked by Renan
- To make the “TA” box is good to put a blank CD hood!
- Asked by Denise
- When I was playing without improvisation tava a little more complicated, but after I started using the bag, the magazine and the special shoe caught very quickly … When was to use the numbers in place of the sounds I did not know, so I used sounds all the time. I found it easy to get talking “tss”, “okay” than 1 or 2.
- Asked by DW
- For me, tapping his thigh very shuffles when hit the foot. Pushed the micro keyboard to the side and I am drumming on the table. Easier off the foot of the hand – and vice versa:-)
Want to play a virtual battery, using the computer keyboard? No need to install any software, just go to the next site and play:
Click the “Show Key Hints” button in the lower right corner to show up the keys on the screen.The ones we use in Baterna are: S, N and space (hi-hat, and bass drum box).
Reader Tip André Pinto: I discovered inadvertently show key hints does not show that the D key does sound the closed hi-hat, more appropriate to play the rhythms of Baterna.
Have a good time!
The player Rafinha found another virtual battery, which uses only the number keys, making it easier to use both hands on the keyboard.
I advise the right hand there in the right corner of the keyboard (the numeric keypad) to the hi-hat and the plate (1, 7:09). Oh, do not forget to close the hi-hat with the zero! The left hand does the box and the bass drum in paragraphs 2 and 3 of the top left, above the letters QW E.
