A Year of D'jembe

One of the things on my New Years resolution list was taking djembe lessons. About 2 years ago I bought my drum and seldom played it even though it beckoned daily. When the year began I was trying to weed through the things in my life I wanted to do and begin clearing out those things that no longer interested me. There was that drum. So I got on the phone, called Drum School 101, and had Steve Smith set me up with weekly 1/2 hour lessons. It was one of the best things I ever did. My instructor, Wyatt Lund, is patient, challenging and thoroughly educated in everything drum. I have learned so much and had such fun.

I tease my husband telling him I get to take off my wedding ring for a 1/2 hour every week, sit in a very small room with another man and "beat it"..... the drum that is. When I'm done with the lesson, I have a BIG smile on my face! It's my plan to evaluate at the end of the year and see if it's still something I want to continue. I'm sure it will be!
