Been a while…but still drumming

Still drumming faithfully nearly every day. My happy place (most days!) Lessons have been curtailed to once a month due to financial constraints and because I now have three children studying percussion! Practice times must be haggled over some days in order to ensure everyone gets in their time.  It amazes me how each of them is following a percussion path of their own volition and with enjoyment. My son has most recently chosen percussion for his upcoming fifth grade band instrument but ukulele is his first choice! Unfortunately not part of the band kid. My girls continue to pursue their own path within the percussion field. My oldest continues to play with the highest level band at her high school and participates in marching band along with the pit band for a recent showing of 42nd St at her high school. She has also been working on her trumpet skills with occasional lessons and self motivated learning and practice. This summer she will be in Europe touring with a program which provides performance opportunities and cultural experiences geared toward musically motivated high school students. My middle daughter loves the drum set with all her heart. She is part of her middle school band and her middle school jazz band. Watching her grow in her skills and confidence is wonderful to behold.

As for me I am in pursuit of an awesome shuffle…
