One year ago today I sat in on my first jazz jam. I got hooked, committed myself to jazz, switched to a teacher who is also a great jazz drummer, and got serious about drumming out of an intense desire not to embarrass myself every week. I could write a book about all of the embarrassing blunders I’ve made on the bandstand. But I’ve learned a lot and discovered an incredibly generous and supportive community of musicians who not only tolerate the pain I inflict, but encourage me to keep going.

Here’s hoping the next year will be as much fun as the first… but less embarrassing.

Congratulations !!!

I don’t suppose I’ll ever get good enough at Jazz to even sit in on jam night …
