Drum Set Education Resources
Every once in a while I pose articles, essays, comments, questions, critiques, thoughts, postulations, epiphanies, soliloquies if not outright rants, pontifications or oddball conjectures. So really what's wrong with a good old-fashioned inspired prolix now and then, yes yes?
In the educational realm there exist some points of view that are just completely wrong or defeatist. Most of them sadly parsed out by educators. To this point, I exhort you to ponder some points of view I am helpless to keep to myself - mostly to help you recognize ideas that may limit your own development. Feel free to send feedback. If you "like", copy a blog link you enjoyed here to your social networking portal.
