A drum coach is much more than someone who can help you learn how to play the drums. They can teach you the basics of drumming and help you to improve your skills, yes. But they are so much more than that.
A good drum coach will have a lot of experience in playing situations. And will be able to give you tips and advice on how to improve your playing. They will also be able to help you with your technique. And make sure that you are using the correct grip, posture, and so on. But they are not only drumming teachers.
In fact, The Drum Coach recommends you have many teachers over time. He will then provide the means to get more from the things you learn from each of them as you progress.
Not Only A Teacher
A drum coach isn’t a drum instructor from a teaching point of view. A Drum Coach is more of a guide who guides you not only through your drumming and drumming career. But will also get you to work on the drummer and your life that supports the drumming. After all, everything a drummer plays on the drums comes through the filter that is the drummer. And so everything the drummer plays becomes affected in either a negative way or a more positive way.
More Than A Guide
A Drum Coach is also not a guide to point you in specific directions. He would instead have a program of activities that get the drummer to work on himself. His mind and body integration, his drumming, his health and fitness, and even his finances. Hiring a dedicated Drum Coach will force you to work on yourself to get even more out of your drumming than you are now. And, to achieve more in your drumming career than you are now.
If you are serious about learning how to play the drums. Then finding a good drum coach becomes an essential part of your drumming career. Having someone to be accountable to is worth its weight in gold. Presuming that you are the type of drummer who is willing to do the work involved. And get the most out of yourself and your drumming career and life.
Why Do I Need A Life Coach
You may be thinking, why do I need a life coach? I’m doing fine on my own, thank you very much. But the truth is, we could all use a little help now and then. A drum coach is someone who can help you figure out what you want in life as well as your drumming. And will help create a plan to get you there.
They’re like a personal trainer for your mind. They’ll push you to reach your full potential and help you overcome any obstacles that are holding you back. And unlike your friends or family, a drum coach is completely impartial. So you can be sure that they’re giving you honest feedback and advice. If you’re feeling lost or stuck in life, drumming or both, consider hiring a drumming and life coach. It could be the best decision you ever make.

More Than A Drummer

That said, you are free to read The Drum Coach website articles which will point you in the right direction. Getting yourself an accountability coach will then enhance that personal experience. But it takes more than that.
To become a great drummer who achieves his personal ambitions in drumming. Takes more than drumming. It takes:

And much more besides…
… and that is where a Drum Coach comes in. Like a life coach, a Drum Coach will have a complete program for you to follow. Plus weekly or monthly meetings to set you on the right track and keep you on the right track.
There is no room for ego in drumming, it takes smarts. It takes discipline and thought and it takes control. But none of that is of any use without the right guidance and guiding principles. Again, that is where the drum Coach comes in.
