Many drummers like to warm up and practice with rudiments to keep their techniques clean and dynamically sound. If you don’t practice the rudiments or have never learned them – well, you really probably should!...
Why Silent Drumming?
I'm a serial apartment drummer, having lived in apartments for the last 15 years or so and trying to keep up my drumming chops at the same time.
As a result I've become pretty good at hiding my drumming from my neighbors and not annoying them in general, while playing drums as much as I want to, when I want to.
I didn't make it happen overnight, I had to learn a few techniques to silence drums and keep the noise down. I cover everything I learned here, plus compile in more info from other sources around the Web.
