Administrator - Mayor
I started in Middle school with lessons for almost the entire year and we did nothing but rudiments forever. Then playing and understanding time, eighth, quarter, half, whole notes and rests. The first song we drummed to was the theme to Bridge Over the River Kwai, still using wooden shelves as pads. We had so much we had to learn in order to get into concert band or orchestra. Three of us lasted out of fourteen that started.
