    Minimum age for starting drum lessons

    My dad is a drum teacher and private tutor, so I often meet parents who send their 2-3 year olds to private music schools to learn drums. He is always telling them a story about a boy who played drums like a devil when he was only 4. This story is about Julian Pavone, the youngest professional...

I think I could also try some courses with contemporary music emphasis and drum set centered studies. I also found good reviews about Drumtech, but it's in London, and...

    Eddie Hoh (Fast Eddie Hoh)

    Btw, they never mentioned the reason of his death, just "undisclosed causes". It's been confirmed that he died in a "nursning house." Here's an interview with Chip Douglas confirming that the recording where Eddie Hoh played drums on "Christmas Is My Time Of Year" is authentic...

    DFO hacked again

    Hi, Windows 10 has indeed a good one - Windows Defender, but it made me crazy with its warning messages and blocking all downloads. When I switched to Mac, it's ok now. I use Malwarebytes antivirus now.
