I love the energy levels required for performing as a drummer. Being the rhythmic pulse is something else I always get off on & I have always loved the challenges I’ve faced when playing different styles of music. In fact, that’s one of my favourite things about playing drums.
The usual. Work as hard as you can, not just on your playing but on networking too. This is a very important part. You want & will need people to know you exist & are available. Enjoy playing!!
