drumkit exams

Updates

Hi all, hope your Lunar New Year holiday and festive celebrations went well.

A couple of updates:

First of, my heartiest congratulations to my student. Advait, for scoring a distinction in his Grade 3 Trinity College “Classical and Jazz” Drumkit exam. His work ethic is nothing short of inspiring. To me, he almost always takes to learning new things on the instrument like a duck takes to water, and I enjoy the lessons with him very much. He is a very thoughtful individual who is never short of interesting questions to ask during lessons. I look forward to working with him to take his drumming and musicianship to the next level.

Secondly, in my last update, I shared about my experience recording the Sentimental Ride album by singer-songwriter, Thomas Willemsen. I have been invited by Thomas again to play on his second album along with the same group of musicians as on the last recording. Details to follow. I thank Thomas for giving me this opportunity once again to work with him as I truly enjoyed the process for the last album.

I’ve also completed 4 originals for my own music project and am in discussion with the musicians and engineer for the recording of these songs, as well as organizing rehearsals. Details to follow.

May this year be at least a slightly better one than last year for all of us.
