Marching to the Beat of My Drum

What started as a way to pass the time between all of the planes, trains, and buses, eventually became my new hobby, marching to the beat of my drum. I found solace writing about my passion for drumming. It gave me a chance to reflect upon my drumming philosophies and experiences as a player and teacher. It is an honor to share knowledge and insight with others.

Description

The Zen Art of Drumming

This book is not a textbook or a “how to” manual. There are hundreds, if not thousands of those already existing that provide detailed instruction about how to play various drums and drum styles. On the other hand, Marching To the Beat of My Drum is intended to offer you, the reader, a better insight into the world of percussion and drumming. It is a guide that will provide background information, historical context and significance, observations, advice, stories, suggestions, tips, and a unique Artist’s perspective. You may not agree with every statement or opinion, but the information contained within these pages is valuable and will assist some in their approach to drumming and enlighten others about a subject of interest.
