As far as teachers go, they're pretty much nonexistent in my small town, so I'm pretty much self-taught at the moment.

Re: Open-handed lefty on right handed kit

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I talked to a drum teacher and he suggested I switch my kit around to lefty, while still working on my weak limbs. I did and it's been working out very well.
