The One Thing in My Life That Felt Right.
I was first introduced to the power of drumming while in the third grade. Our class attended a school assembly where the school music teacher demonstrated the different instruments you could play in the band. After hearing the snare drum being played, the crowd went nuts. I went home and asked my father if I could play drums, and he responded with a firm “NO!”.
In the fourth grade, I began attending a new school. I asked about joining the band. Because the drums were so popular, their were no drum spots available. They offered me trombone. I tried it and remember practicing it PERCUSSIVELY. Pitches and slide positions weren’t for me, but I endured as long as I could.
I started drumming in the fifth grade.
