I am 46 and have been playing drums for along time by ear. Ive played in many bands through the years now mainly in my church,however its always bothered me when they hand out music and I cant really follow it ,I listen to the CD or the song they are playing and play by feel ..I can read if its a snare part or something easy but not for a complete set. Do you think that I would benefit from learning to sit read? Thanks Brian

It's always good to know how to read music. I'm in the same situation, I just play in church as well. I listen to a song at rehearsal, and then look at the chords on top, and then finger pick what sounds good. My 13 year old son is taking drum lessons for just over a year, and worked all summer to buy a set. He got the high hat stand and cymbals earlier, and we kicked in and got him a set for Christmas. The lessons definitely do make a difference.
