I started playing drums when I was nine, and mostly stopped when I moved to another city when I was 19, and have been practicing maybe once a month or two for the past few years. I used to be really good and am definitely nowhere near where I used to be (but haven't forgotten everything)
I started practicing more a few months back and have been having lessons - but my drum teacher has noticed that my technique was pretty bad. For example, I didn't know what an upstroke/downstroke/etc was!
My drum lessons have basically consisted of learning basic technique from scratch, and I'm finding it super boring and frustrating. Am I right to be frustrated or should I power through it? Is it that important considering I managed for years without it?
