More Than Just Paradiddles

In my early years of drumming I had the great fortune to work with some incredible drummers who also happened to be great teachers. I have been spending the month of August in Seattle and practicing at The Seattle Drum School owned by Steve Smith (not the one you’re thinking of).

While there, I noticed a bunch of great quotes throughout his school that highlight the teaching philosophy of both himself and his other instructors. Needless to say, I am very impressed with both how wonderful a person he is and the positive vibe in his drumming space.

Here are some photos from my visits. Thanks Steve!
