I will continue with lessons and workshops. This week I’ve both a drum lesson and jazz trio workshop. In parallel with skills I've added a secondary goal: developing my individual voice on the drum kit. I’m starting to hear this voice in my head. Hints and snippets are starting to poke through. It is both exhilarating and frustrating but encouraging.
How about your voice? What are you doing to find it, develop it, cherish it?
