I am thinking seriously about starting lessons. I played for about a year when I was a kid.
A few questions...
Looking at taking lessons through a shop. Lessons are $25 a week for 1/2 hour lessons. It seems all the shops bill you for the month.
My end goal : I would like to get good enough to play in a band or jam with others for fun.
I have a limited budget for a kit , so I was taking a look a electronic.
This would be nice for a few reasons. nice small size, so I may be able to put it my dining room. you can play back to songs , lessons, metronome etc. And I can practice when other people are around !! Noise level can be almost zero with headphones. seems like alot of fun can be had with electronic drums!!!
Obviously , the biggest downside is that I would have to buy an acoustic kit , if I ever get to the point of playing in a band.
I have been researching the ,Alesis Nitro Mesh Electronic Drum Set . Retails for $350 . Price is very right. Yes I will need a chair and sticks. It's all mesh, seems like great quality.
That's where I am at right now.
I know I can start out on a pad, but I think I am waaay more likely to practice on an E kit!
Thoughts, advice, comments , are welcome.
