A drum kit usually includes a high hat, crash, ride cymbal, and a pair of drum sticks. If you are taking another style of drumming, you may purchase a snare, bongos, conga, or djembe. Most students will also purchase a drum practice pad at a music store, which is a portable way to practice the beats and techniques of drumming.

Most children should begin drum lessons at around 7 or 8 years old. The drums are a very physical isntrument and require a lot of dexterity on the part of the player. Drum students who are learning on a full drum kit should be big enough to reach the pedals, and should be physical enough to use their arms and hands for extended periods of time.
