Wednesday 27th November

I had my first lesson with a real live drum teacher. Until now I’ve been watching web tutorials, which are great, but no match for the real thing.

It was the best music lessons I’d had in years. My teacher is a friendly, talented drummer about my age. It was fun and there’s no pressure. Yeah, I’m going to get a grade book to learn from, but that doesn’t mean I’ll have to sit an exam. There’s no music courses I’m going to be reluctantly packed off to, enforced practice time, or pressure on my teacher to turn me into a musician worthy of the funding they receive for training me.

I’m having fun learning an instrument again, just for the joy of playing music.
