In December 2018, I set myself a goal to play drums with a live band at my wife and I's 60th birthday party (July 13th 2019). 43 years earlier, I'd bought a kit, taught myself (badly) and with 3 or 4 others guys, we formed a band as all teenagers do. We played a few pub gigs and less than 12 months later it was all over. I hadn't sat behind a kit since then. My dream was still there however and when I was introduced to Nigel, he was up for helping me achieve my goal and thought it was a great idea. On Day 1, Nigel sat me behind his kit and asked me to play something - I pretty well stared blankly at the circles in front of me! However, as you'll see from the video, I did achieve my goal and suprised more than 80 friends and family, most of whom had no idea. I want to thank Nigel for his patience but also his frankness. Nigel is dedicated to helping you learn the rudiments that will hold you in good stead for whatever you choose to play. We had a few laughs along the way, although I'm sure he had a few dispondent head shakes on occasions following my lessons. In the end, I got there and the bonus was, Nigel even found me the perfect band to play with on the night! .
