Drumming strengths:

Flexibility, energy, treating drums as a melodic instrument - each part of the set has a huge rainbow of sounds and colours, and thinking about drumming this way allows me to build a melody line not only beats.This is how I hear and imagine drums as an instrument. Rhythm is just the ground to make music on drums

Drumming means to me:

Passion, fun, air, communication

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Practice with self control to find the fastest way to become perfect (don´t forget the fun!). Listen a lot of various kinds of music
