almost undoubtedly. just be aware that like anything else you will have to do this ALOT to really get it ingrained to you. also, if you are playing drums a drum pad will help your natural rhythm but it gets different when you get on a real kit (you're not going to always hit every tom, snare and cymbal like you would on a drum pad, you'll hit with different velocities to create a different atmosphere and timbre)
