Congratulations on beginning your journey with drums or percussion! There are many great options for beginner drummers from practice pads, to acoustic drumsets, to electronic kits. Your choice will depend on your interests and age, but what’s important is that you or your child’s instrument provides what they need to progress and enjoy playing. If needed, students can start their lessons with just a drum pad, but we recommend investing in a full kit. You’ll also want to consider accessories like a drum stool and drum sticks.
We’ve put together a few of our favorite quality, affordable options below.
