Welcome to my world!
I like to write about things I am currently doing in life; jumping rope, riding bikes, reading books, taking piano lessons, education, clinics, students, hiking with my wife, food, travels and of course... music and everything to do with it.
I have a new album coming out called "The Other Side of the Story". I'll tell you all about it!
I have many thoughts on teaching, so there are lots of posts about the various issues I deal with in helping great young drummers discover themselves.
Cycling was a dream of mine when I was a teenager. I stopped for many years to pursue my dreams in music, but I am coming back to cycling and want to tell the world how amazing cycling is!
One of my favorite physical activities on the planet, next to playing music, is JUMPING ROPE! I'll tell you why.
And, I love my life. I have an amazing wife, family and friends stretched out all over the country. From my roots in Hannibal, Missouri, to Kansas City to New York and New Jersey. Through music, I have met a lot of great people. I find that if you put out a good vibe, it will come back to you.
That's about it, enjoy the blog and see you in the next post!
