The best way to get beats in your ear is to take out the vocals and just listen to instrumental music.

Try to listen to instrumental beat music, where the beat is the only sound. Try to hear the beat in the melody of the music. If you've got music in your head and you're not listening to a song you're probably not hearing the beats. You can try going to a place that is usually quiet and listen to instrumental music with out sound. This will help you get in the zone. You might want to bring ear buds so you can listen with your headphones in.

There's nothing better than hearing that drum beat in your head but it takes some practice to get there. Sometimes when I sit to meditate I hear music or instruments playing in my head. I usually hear the heartbeat. I don't know if there's a correlation with my ability to be in the zone but it might be the same with some others.

When I first started hearing drum beats in my head I would sit down and try to hear it over music. To start, there's nothing more irritating than hearing music in your head and you're trying to hear the beat in there.

It was really hard because I would try to focus on hearing the beat and it was very distracting. I just sat there and listened for the drums and kept my mind on them. It's hard to practice something like this, but if you can get the mind to stay on the music you're practicing or focusing on something it will help.

Listening to the sounds of natureTo begin, learn how to play drum by playing a song and learning drum patterns from your drum kit. Start small and work up to larger rhythmic sequences.

Find drum beat by playing drum patterns
When playing with a drummer learn to use the drummer's timing in your playing. For example, let's say the drummer is playing an open hi-hat pattern and you want to play a kick cymbal. You can time your pattern to the drummer's hi-hat pattern.

If you play a drum pattern to the rhythm of the drummer, you will find your drum patterns sounding different and easier to play. A great way to find your drum beat is by listening to a song and just playing the part of the song with one finger for the hi-hat.

Here's an example of how I was able to learn to play a rhythm that was coming from an electronic music producer.
