Episode Info:

We learn the evolution of how early drummers learned their craft by watching other drummers who passed through town and by apprenticing with drummers such as Chick Webb and Art Blakey. Then came the advent of drum notation books which allowed young drummers to learn at home, followed by drum tapes and DVD's, and now social media which has drastically changed the learning process.

Stephen also teaches us all about brain science and how we can better use our practice time to most efficiently evolve as drummers. We talk about tons of other great topics in this episode revolving around practice and learning from our percussion ancestors. Stephen Taylor is a wealth of information and really came very well prepared for the interview, enjoy!
