I have been learning, playing and teaching drums for 15 years around the UK and Europe. My love of music was kick-started by my mother when I was very young. Prominent figures at that time included Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. I now listen to a heavily vetted selection of music across some very contrasting genres, only adding to it tunes which really tap into something very special... Although I don't yet know exactly what that 'something very special' is. I am committed to finding out though, and am currently looking to expand my musical knowledge into the realms of melody and harmony to aid my discovery.
Music, self-help, sharing inspiration, doing right.
'To tell others that, It is a rumour, Will not do. When your own heart asks, How will you respond?' This is a translation of a Japanese poem featured in the famous book 'Hagakure' by Yamamoto Tsunetomo, which has a very deep meaning to me, the core principle being that one can never truly deceive oneself.
Things that really matter.
Writing, video games.
I came across TED some years ago and have always known that it was there, but never truly exploited it for all it's worth. I logged on again this evening and now feel like taking a more active role.
