A great man (I think it was Mr Miyagi from The Karate Kid) once said:
"There is no such thing as a bad student. Only a bad teacher".
And some that really make sense to me, having been involved in drum and music
education professionally for the past 10 years. In that time I have been extremely
fortunate to have met some truly inspirational teachers and I would like to dedicate
this blog/magazine - (you could call it either a blogazine or a blagazine, depending
on if you think I know what I'm talking about!) - to those drummers who have really
made a difference in the world of drums and drum education.

DZN: I’m glad you had a great time. Perhaps that woman who kept driving by was in shock?
EF: Or maybe she contacted the police! It wasn’t long before we attracted a crowd and people began stopping to see this crazy drummer on their Round Rock. We also gathered the attention of our Round Rock Police Department who related that “…someone called reporting some suspicious-looking activity on the Round Rock.” Our police department was content to let this eccentric musician beat the heck out of the drums on the most famous natural landmark in Round Rock, Texas.
