Thank you to all of the students who performed yesterday at the Lancaster Drummer “Drum Jam” and the families and friends that came out to support their loved ones in their musical journey. We had a wonderful turn out of about 100 people! For many of the students yesterday was their first time ever performing and they did fantastic. The veteran performers killed it of course and put on a great show. I hope to see you all at the next Drum Jam in the spring of 2019
You’re never too old to start drumming!
Happy 71st Birthday Dan Wagner!
Hello everyone, this is Dan Wagner a student of mine the past 7 years. Dan and I met when he would bring his granddaughter Kayleigh to drum lessons. One day Dan asked me what the age of my oldest student was and at the time I believe they were in their late 40’s or 50’s. Dan said he was 64 and that drumming had been on his "bucket list". Shortly after our talk Dan decided to take the plunge and start hisdrumming journey. The past 7 years with Dan have been awesome. Dan has gone from not knowing how to play anything to performing in my annual recitals. Dans favorite styles of drumming are funk and Motown drumming, he also enjoys current artist such as Bruno Mars. Due to a knee surgery Dan will be sitting out the upcoming Drum Jam, but we wish him a speedy recovery so he can get back behind the kit.
