My Drumming Debut!

People (in the know) have been asking about my drumming debut.

Overall I think it went quite well, although I certainly have a long way to go. YouTube videos have been a great resource, especially lessons posted by Tim Metz and Conor Guilfoyle.

For those of you who don't know, I'm now playing drum set during the regular 10AM jazz service at St. Pauls Collegiate Church in Storrs. My friend (and professional saxophonist) Kris Allen has similarly undertaken learning the string bass. Needless to say we are having a blast. Kris' wife, pianist Jen Allen, has been very gracious and patient in tolerating our mid-life tomfoolery. Thanks Jen!
