One of my practices as a teacher is to help students with bands when they are ready. This can involve simple recomendations to more hands on activities. One of these bands I formed in order to create a gig for my student. My role at the beginning is MD/ percussionist. Yesterday was rehearsal #2. The first gig is November 9.
I liked that my red sparkly percussion set up meshed with his red sparkly kit. So during a break I took some pic's.
When this band is ready I will help with the first shows and then enlist another percussionist. I will then move onto the next student.
My main drive these days is to simply pass on my knowledge while helping students.
NOT my drums. My student's gorgeous maple kit. A couple of pieces were given to him by me over the years. Cymbal snare etc...
