A drum­mer is amu­si­cian who plays the drums and usu­ally per­forms as amem­ber of a band rather than as a solo artist.

Drum­mers can play a va­ri­ety of mu­sic in­clud­ing folk, rock and pop.

Many drum­mers work on a part-time or ca­sual ba­sis and few can drum in a full-time po­si­tion.

Drum­mers can be self-taught but most take lessons dur­ing their school years and de­velop their skills through ex­pe­ri­ence.

Most suc­cess­ful drum­mers do not have a ter­tiary de­gree.

$118 to $1,000,000 a per­for­mance. Ca­sual rates for am­a­teur mu­si­cians of­ten are ne­go­ti­ated with the em­ployer.
