    I actually wouldn't recommend declaring section leaders. From my experience teaching and performing, the title is always really empty and mostly inflates the ego more than actually helping the kids....

    Good point. :) I've heard this term before, but immediately jumped to the conclusion that you were talking about the drum set itself. Sorry!

    This. ^



    I disagree strongly. You don't need every drum ever made in a kit to make good music. Buddy's set wasn't the size of Terry Bozzio's, yet they both are incredible players. It's what...

    I am completely clueless when it comes to pipe drumming, but am a percussionist always willing to learn more about the instrument family. Where do I start?

    Huge bump, but this board needs a little more activity anyways. I like to have my snare facing me in a way that I don't have to reach around the drum to turn off the strainer. If I need to get to it...

    I'm pretty sure the Scouts snares use Lee Beddis models, since he is percussion director there.

    Yes. I'm not saying everyone has to be a master and now absolutely everything to play at all, but just have something more up your sleeve than loud and fast. It's not impressive.

    I know this is a huge bump, but Jeff came and performed at my old school in Fayette, Missouri - Central Methodist University a month or two back! Very nice guy and great clinic/performances!

    All of these are good tips. It is very important to instill strong fundamentals from the get go: timing, stick control, rhythmic interpretation, reading, coordination, etc. It is also even more...

    I'd agree with this. Though it depends on what music you play. If you want to play a lot of ethnic music, maybe a cowbell would be more essential than if you're playing in a rock band, etc.

    I completely agree. For ever instrument, one needs to be proficient at the fundamentals before going into soloing or playing the fastest, loudest, highest, or whatever. If all I hear is a drummer who...
