Episode 50 – Psychological Techniques of Drumming

“Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.” – Yogi Berra

Yogi, being the wordsmith that he was, leads us into this week’s very important topic. We spend countless hours in practice rooms cultivating our technique, vocabulary and time feel. However the psychological aspect of our musical development is often overlooked. This week we dive into mental techniques to improve your drumming. We cover topics that help you confront and ultimately defeat common emotional and mental roadblocks: fear, worry, self-doubt, over thinking (restless mind), and rage. We then give you proven exercises and techniques that combat these issues. We finish the show with each of us discussing a great underrated drummer. Join us every Monday for a brand new show. We’re available on Itunes, Google Play Podcasts, Stitcher, Podbean, and all of your favorite podcast apps. Subscribe today!
