Even though both my dad and I played trumpet in our respective high school bands, we had way more percussionists in the family. My brother Mike was a drummer as were all three of his sons. My sister Michelle’s son minors in percussion at Baldwin Wallace University and we’ve gone to see his ensemble perform. Which just all means, we all grew up in loud households.

So get ready to hear music led by the instrument even I learned how to play in Volume 128: Let There Be Drums.
