It is a great privilege play music, and to pass forward what was lovingly shared with me. The Drummers Prayer is an affirmation, a teaching tool, and a learning experience that I share with all of my students, drummers and non drummers alike.
I AM gifted with the Power
To create is a gift we are given. The power comes through us although not of us.
I AM is powerful and YOU are. Express yourself. Fearless flow.
To hold it down. And keep it tight
Be consistent. Stay in the measure & BE in the MOMENT. Listen to yourself and others. Hear around the corner. Steady. Quiet fire. Groove responsibly. Thunder!!! Be present. 100%. Human relations. Fearless flow.
Make it SWING and ROCK it right!
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that Doodle-lahh, Doodle-lahh, Swing, Doodle-lahh, Doodle-lahh, Doodle-lahh Bang, Bang, Dikita Bang – Life is but a Groove.
