Some drummers play with their heels down while others play with their heels up. There are some advantages to both and only you can decide what’s best for you. Personally, I almost always play the bass drum with my heel up and play both ways on the hi-hat, depending on the situation. I assume that you’ll do the same things with your feet because that’s what every drummer I know does. Playing this way is also the most efficient way to play today’s music (all styles n yes, even jazz).
