The first step is the understanding how the instrument works and the technical requirements needed in order to play,i.e how to hold the sticks, setting the drums, coordination etc.
Secondly, I would teach the importance of listening and connecting the instrument technical aspects with the joy of playing music.
I endeavor to make the lesson fun,relaxed, practical and creative.
