When Should You Start Playing Music With Other People? -- This is a question I've gotten several times lately. When should you start playing music with other people?
My short answer...NOW!!!
I started playing music with other musicians the first week I had my drum set. I believe this had a lot to do with my growth on the instrument both as a drummer and a musician. It made me not focus on my drumming, but on the music and how my drumming could contribute to that music.
Leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts...are you currently playing music with other musicians? Should you be?
