Open iTunes to Buy
Play as You Are is an invitation to take a break from watching the YouTube drummer contests and reading the "get better fast" drumming websites, and direct the attention back to yourself for a moment. Making music and playing drums does not start at the tip of your drumstick, not even with the motion before you strike a drum. It really starts with the desire, actually with the compulsion, to make music and to play. Play as You Are is an open invitation to explore a different approach to playing music and a sharing of the author's experiences.
