The " Stepping into Rhythm
and "Heart of Frame Drumming" courses are really helping me understand more deeply the drumming practices I have been learning from other drum teachers.
I find your teaching style fun, refreshing and detailed. I love the tempo of learning and how you build the practice of the stepping, hands voice and melody to allow integration into the body memory and also how you bring in the new information to build on the foundation.
My voice is very shy but it is very slowly and gradually coming out to play. I am really enjoying learning from you. Exciting journey. Thank you so much.
