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.

For those of you who don't know Cities Of Glass you should definitely have a listen if you like such bands as We Are Scientists or Killers...
Imran, welcome to Drumazine! We'd like to find out some more about you...
Dzn: Onto equipment! What gear do you play? (drums/cymbals/anything else you would like to
IM: I play a Mapex m tourer (12" rack tom, 14" floor tom, 22" kick drum), 14" Pearl Dennis Chambers Signature Snare, 14" Sabian AAX Stage Hats, 16" Sabian AAX Stage Crash, 18" Sabian AAX Dark Crash, 20" Sabian AAX Stage Ride (all my hardware is Mapex).
That's about it for the moment! But I've got my eye on a Ribbon Crasher and a Sabian HHX evolution crash - hopefully I'll be able to invest sometime soon?
Dzn: With the advent of new technology on what seems to be a daily basis, what modern technology do you incorporate:
a. into your practice? IM: For me, I really just practice with a metronome. That's about it, and I haven't yet found any need for anything else yet - who knows maybe there will be something that pops up that is perfect!
Dzn: Have you got any advice to other drummers out there about practice or the music business or anything else?!
