Welcome to Drum Stuff!

Hello! Welcome to the Percussion and Drum Stuff blog. I will share some of my tips and tricks of drumming with you. I drum almost every single day, whether it is on an actual drum, practice pad, Rock Rand video game, or just on my desk at work with my bare hands. First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I began taking drum lessons when I was in five grade. I joined band in 6th grade playing the bells which I oh so hated. I did marching band in high school at Thomas Worthington. My freshman year I was in the front ensemble (not marching) and my last three years I played snare drum and became a section leader. I also did indoor drumline (winter percussion), again playing snare. In 2003, we won the WGI PSO Scholastic Open World Championship. I graduated from the University of Toledo with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I was head drummer while I marched in the Rocket Marching Band my first two years in school. The purpose of this blog is to share my knowledge and help others so please ask any questions that you may have!
