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 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.
