    Your life sounds awesome Patrick! It will be so great to have you around! I am looking forward interaction with other “classmates” to share wins and frustration, but I guess life happens and keeping daily contact with forum can become hard in busy times!

    Anyway, let’s do our best to establish contact and keep motivation in between…[Read more]

  • You will do so great Beverley! And I’d love to see a performance of you and your husband in about a year, with your newly taken challenges already on the way! It will be a great journey!

    Hi John!

    Is really suchva figure of far and hidden place Nebraska? I’m asking because also in The Big Bang Theory they make a lot of jokes about it in the same direction, and I am curious about that!

    Anyway, yeah, here another warrior doing her best to improve! How long have you been drumming? Why did you start?

    I hope you have a lot of fun…[Read more]

  • Hi Henrik!

  • <p style=”text-align: left;”>Hi Annmarie!! Nice to see you around! I hope you enjoy this program as much as I do!</p>
    I think music practice is always quite lonely, no matter the instrument… But the counterpart is that, in particular drums, are one of the mist amazing instruments to put together a band, at it feels so collaborative and…[Read more]

    @Leon – Thanks for the message!! I’m glad not being alone! I should probably buy the crash cymbal to upgrade mine as well,  your kit looks so complete! It’s so cool you have the chance to buy an acoustic one! It has to be amazing practicing in acoustic everyday! :_) I didn’t know you can use that in gigs! May I ask you what kind of amplifier do…[Read more]

  • Boas noites Luis!

    Nice to see you around here! I’m a Galizian girl living in Japan! So we are almost neighbours in heart! ;)

    I also have ha electronic kit here, no way to get an acoustic one, and it’s going pretty well combined with studio sessions and my teacher kit! I hope you enjoy here as much as I am doing! I love this site and in one month…[Read more]

  • That’s so frustrating! I used to have that kind of issues with my left hand as well, so I force myself to work twice or three times more with the left hand, and (maybe this is a mistake but I do it), I decrease the speed to one that I can really follow and correct with the left hand ALSO in my right hand, and I work until I feel the left hand is…[Read more]

    Hi everybody!

    Now I am the most jealous person in this group… I wish I could have an acoustic kit :_ But it is totally forbiden here in Tokyo unless you pay miles of dollars for an insonorized house (and since you can’t make any arrangements in the house while you are renting, it is not possible to set up…)

    So, at home I have a Roland TD-25K w…[Read more]

  • Hi Robert! Thanks for you message! I’ve just finished a bit of practice, now, going to sleep! I’m still overwhelmed by the enormous quantity of resources we weve here, no idea where to start from! But yeah, it’s so great to have you all around in the forum, together with Stephen-sensei. I’m sure it’i going to be such an amazing journey. As is it…[Read more]

  • Hello everybody from Tokyo!

    My name is Ale, I am from Spain, but for job reasons I moved to Japan about a year ago. Just before moving I was being so melodramatic with the farewells, and a good friend told me (wise words), that instead of being sad, I should be happy for the opportunity to start a new life in a new country. Just when I came, with…[Read more]

  • Hey Stephen!

    So nice to know about your story. You have such an amazing family and a job you like. That’s awesome.  Thanks so much for all your work around, I’m sure a lot of good drumming around the world is partially thanks to you!

    I’m so happy I have joined in here and I am telling all my friends that I’ve just started an online drum course…[Read more]
