I've recently agreed to teach a girl I'm getting to know (she's very hot and has to come over to my place in order to practice) to play drums. Well, problem is I'm no drummer, but I can play drums fairly well. Question is: Where should I begin?
She's an absolute beginner, but she can keep a steady tempo quite good, especially regarding her level of knowledge on the instrument.

Try to teach her a hard song so it takes forever so you can be one step ahead and learn off someone who can play drums

just stay 1 step ahead of the person at all times...

been teaching music theory for the last 2 months now at some institute... first time i taught the subject, i was literally just 1 page ahead of the students myself... was almost as clueless as them... but now after a 2 batches, it all actually makes total sense to me...

you'll actually improve as a drummer by teaching the instrument... well as long as you're only banging the drums and you know.. nothing else.

Thanks a lot. =)

And no, she isn't paying at all. I'm kinda just trying to get to know her better so it'll eventualy lead further and then she'll start paying me good.

Make sure you teach her how to hold the stick properly.

Teach her with sheet music. Write some yourself too. It can be extremely helpful at certain stages of learning drums.

It also means she can take the music away and practice the rhythms without a kit.

Remember to teach technique also. Left hand (snare) stick stays close to the drum skin when you're not striking, not 2 feet up in the air. That'll make ghost notes easier to grasp later on.

Start with the rudiments and the simple AC/DC beat, then move on.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Start banging nice and slow so she can get the hang of gripping the stick and the various strokes you can do on the head.

Ah.

Go on...
