How did you start drumming - When I was a kid I could hear the local drum and bugle corps practicing on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings. I could always hear the drums over the distance and I loved the cadences. I then managed to get permission to travel to where they were practicing and I'd watch the practices. I was hooked.
