I started playing drums when I was around 10 years old. I remember my mother taking me to drum lessons every week and sitting in the waiting room waiting for my turn. I played on a drum pad for a long time before getting a set of drums. I started out playing in the school band on just a snare drum. I had to show my parents that I wanted to play the drums before they would spend the money on a set. It was an exciting day when I got my first set of Ludwig drums. I remember playing for hours trying to get my coordination and rudiments down. Then I joined a band and started playing at school dances and weddings. I played all through high school and some college until I was drafted. I carried my drums with me in the service and tried starting a few bands but it was hard keeping them together. Then I got married and started a family and the drums had to go. I sold them and didnít play for a long time and then one day I got the bug and started to play again.
Itís a love that you never forget. I donít really want to start playing in a band and traveling around all over the place but, I love playing and started getting my rudiments down again and I want to be able to put it to good use. So I started looking at how the young people today play and felt like they were missing out on the thrill of getting into the groove and not learning how to play the drums like a musical instrument. Anybody can play the boom, smash beat. I want people to enjoy playing the drums the way I have.
So I started looking around to see how I could put together a syllabus to teach the drum set. Thatís when I ran across Drumsense and realized that they did it for me. Drumsense is a structured way of learning and developing a strong base to build on. If you are serious about playing the drums, (WE NEED TO GET TOGETHER.) Iím really looking forward to meeting you and helping you on this great adventure. I love drumming and will do my best to inspire you to love it too.
