And there were three shows I can remember that turned me on to drums: The Monkees, The Partridge Family, and the Brady Bunch (there was an episode where Bobby Brady decided to play drums and was wailing on them in the carport. It looked like loads of fun.) Anyway, whenever these shows had a musical number, I was always fixated on the drums....well, that and Laurie Partridge (rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr).

Default And the beat goes on

Well hello to each and everyone of my fellow drummers.

My name is Anthony (Tony, Anton or The Drumbassador)
I have been playing drums now for the best part of my life now and it has now become my full time job now session drumming for bands and also fulltime drummer for my band KILLER ANGELS www.myspace.com/killerangels

Drumming to me is not a hobby its a way of life and would say to all you beginner drummers out there to just keep on going with the groves as it will pay off for you but its not an over night thing so patents and a cool head are required.BUT ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO ADVISE NEW DRUMMERS IS........LISTEN TO MORE THAN JUST THE STYLE OF MUSIC THAT YOU LIKE AS IT MAKES A BETTER DRUMMER.
I hope that this little bit of my history may rub off onto some of you and make you think about being more passionate about your drumming and look forward to becomeing a regular on this drummers forum.

All the best to each and everyone of you and never give up on your dreams

Tony McCagh

Default Hello everyone

Hi,

I'm new to this forum so I thought I'd introduce myself. I have actually been reading threads on this forum for a couple months but I never bothered to register. I think I can safely say that I've gotten twice as good as drumming as I was before I found this forum. I'm fifteen years old, I live in Westchester county in New York, and I've been drumming since I was in 3rd grade. Pleased to meet everyone.

Default Re: Introduce Yourself

Hey everyone! I'm pretty new here, though I've read a lot of posts and downloaded tons of video clips from this place. I've been around at the Tama forum a while if you recognize me. This whole site is pretty unbelievable.
real name: Matt
age: 20
how long been playing: Drumset since I think 7th grade
origin of user name: Take a wild guess...
top 5 drummers: Ben Cissell from Audio Adrenaline was my first big influence. After that, Scott Phillips from Creed, and then Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater. The other two could be any of a number of the ones featured here on drummerworld.com.
make of drumkit: Tama Starclassic Maple
make of cymbal: Zildjian A's.
where do you practice: home and church
are you in a band/s: www.myspace.com/soulharvestmusic
covers or originals: originals, and some covers that apparently were more popular some time like before I was born :)
what style of music: I like all styles of rock, old or new. I also occasionally listen to country. I'm pretty open, I think.
favourite take out food: Pizza Hut
country: The United States of America
one really odd fact about yourself: I actually have had a nickname for several years that comes from when I climbed a tree. I don't know, does that work?
how did you start drumming: I started playing percussion in the school band in 6th grade. When I went to junior high and started playing snare in pep band, I always had this incredible feeling like it didn't matter what else I had to worry about. I started playing drumset in the school's jazz band,. and I've been addicted to playing now ever since.

how did you start drumming? Some may say the question above had a lot to do with it... I started in 5th grade in the elementary school band. In 6th grade I borrowed a drum set to play in a little rock band they put together for an event. I pretty much just kept time while the other set player (he was like 30) actually played. In the box with the borrowed drumset was "Drum Techniques of Rush" I've been reading music since I was 5 and reallized very quickly that anyone that could play what was written there must be darn good. Been hooked ever since. Cheapie borrowed set -> Pearl Export -> 1970's Slinger kit -> Taye Studio Maple

Real name: Juho
Age: 23
How long been playing: Since the age of 20, which adds up to a bit under four years at the present time.

Country? Finland.
One really odd fact about yourself? I quit my university studies to focus on drumming.
How did you start drumming? I air drummed and listened closely to drumming for several years. When I got to try a drum kit at the ripe age of 19, playing them seemed quite natural and, dare I say, easy. I had been playing the guitar for a couple of years at the time, but the instant I played my first beat I knew I had found my true love. I bought a six-piece kit with a double pedal and started fiddling with it a bit. Shortly I got to my senses and ditched the double pedal and two toms, and I ended up with a standard four piece. The drums were joined by a nice set of Zildjian A Customs and I was all set.

I attended a week-long music camp, and I took my first drum lessons there. The week was all about jazz comping, independence and reading music -- eight hours a day for six days gave me a very good kick start. It also got me listening to a lot of jazz and whatnot. I kept practicing for long hours even after the camp and attended a music school the following fall. I took lessons in drumming, theory, solfege, music history, piano and pretty much anything I could, and after a year I applied for and was accepted into a high-level music school. It's my second year here and I still have one to go. I'm playing in several bands and theater productions, plus I give drum lessons every now and then. It's been a heck of a ride and I'm excited to see where this road takes me...
