I’ve wanted to learn how to play drums most of my life. Work, kids, life kept my drum desire at bay until my husband found an excellent drum teacher for me a few years ago and I started playing drums. Thankfully I can read music (flute player when I was young) but I was a bit rusty at first. My teacher, Nick, got me back in the groove. His patience and expert instruction continually motivates me to keep at it until I become the drummer that I want to be. At the end of the day, it’s a relaxing and feel good hobby. I chose this song because it was the first session with Nick that I could be mask less while recording in his studio, the song was fun to learn and play, and I think I got what I gave. Please also check out my niece Amanda Ladd in the 13-17 category – she’s definitely got the music in her. Thanks Nick!
