Two decades ago, my drum teacher Marty told me how jealous he was of my the millennial generation. When he learned music, he repeated his favorite drummers' licks on vinyl records. A sweaty, teenage Marty would wear out second increments of the songs as he struggled to master various rolls, cymbal splashes, and fills. My generation, on the other hand, could easily play along to our favorite System of a Down fills with earbuds on, looping tough sections on our bricklike iPods. But I'm beginning to feel equivalent tinges of happiness and envy for people beginning to learn or relearn instruments today. After more than two decades of formal lessons and a four-year conservatory degree, the results of my research for this guide have me convinced that a good portion of my spendy education could have been substituted with a steady supply of caffeine, a decent iPad , and YouTube.
