Hey guys I have gotten pretty lazy with my drumming lately. With work and kids I just don't make time like I should. My goal this year is to practice 30 minutes every day. Let's hear your goals and inspire each other!
To actually work through Stick Control from front to back doing each exercise at least twenty times at various tempos and dynamics on the snare drum. I just bought a new copy to replace the original I purchased 33 years ago in high school when I first picked up the sticks. I'm approaching it with a much more focused and organized approach than when I was 14.
Also to keep working on playing rock music more convincingly than the way I've always played it-which was a big band drummer playing a "rock'" chart ( I hope to start a rock band when I retire at 60 ).
My drumming goal is to get better at everything that i do on the drums. Same as the last 10+ years. Also to get better at guitar, piano, bass guitar and composing. And since i just got a job as a music teacher, to get better at teaching so i can serve my student's needs. Specifically I need to get my technique to the next level and remove some of the tension that has been creeping into my playing lately.
