Boom the bass drum, crash the cymbals and get in the groove as a drummer. Drumming in rhythm is easy to pick up, while pro drummers spend a lifetime of practice and dedication mastering drumming skills.

Drumming with others in a drumming group or drumming circle using djembe, conga or bongo drums is a brilliant way to learn the basics. The pulse of a joint beat gives an exhilarating feeling.

To drum in a rock, pop or jazz band you're best to learn the drum kit. You can teach yourself or take individual lessons.

Typical cost: £3-£5 for a drumming circle session. Around £20 per hour for drum kit lessons.
