How did you start drumming? My partner's band needed a drummer and there was a drum set in the garage no one was playing.. So I had a go and drumming was the most natural and fun thing ever... So have become addicted very quickly. Don't know if other ex-dancers also have an affinity to drumming but to me there seems to be a connection in terms of body awareness and learning sequences of movement...
