Publisher's Summary

Play as You Are is an invitation to take a break from watching the YouTube drummer contests and reading the "get better fast" drumming websites, and direct the attention back to yourself for a moment.

Making music and playing drums does not start at the tip of your drumstick, not even with the motion before you strike a drum. It really starts with the desire, actually with the compulsion, to make music and to play. Play as You Are is an open invitation to explore a different approach to playing music and a sharing of the author's experiences.

Great book

I love this book. Half way through I was thinking I have to listen to this again. With forty years of playing under my belt I’m always looking for new ways of approaching this instrument we all love. Thank you sir for your insight and inspiration #staybangin’🥁 Peace

Great read for musicians

I really enjoyed this book! Inspiring thoughts on honing our craft. Also, very grounded and honest perspective on what it takes to succeed as a drummer.
