How do I stop my drumsticks from dropping?
Re: dropping drumsticks? If a tighter grip doesn’t help, beeswax rubbed on the grip area can work wonders in preventing slippage.
Is traditional grip better than matched?
Physiologically, the traditional left underhand grip uses fewer muscles than the right overhand grip and this causes each muscle to do a larger percentage of the work. Matched grip is therefore technically easier to play, though for reasons stated above, it is not always the superior choice for every application.
What do drummers call their drumsticks?
beater – a drumstick (usually with a mallet-type head) that beats a drum. Also, the rod and ball mechanism on a bass drum foot pedal is called a beater.
What drumsticks should a beginner use?

As for practicing, many drummers choose to use fatter sticks, such as 2B so that when they go back to “regular” or “thinner” sticks, they have it even easier to play.
Can you learn drums at any age?

What are the 2 ways of holding the stick?

Why do I keep dropping my drumsticks?
