My brother left us here in Adelaide to work in another city. It was good news for me since I would have more room for myself as well as I get to finally enjoy playing the drums without disturbing him. The drums originally belonged to a friend of my father but eventually, he gave it for us to keep. I have been playing with the idea of learning how to play the drums for some time but have not had a chance to do so because of our living set up. Now that I have my own space and lots of free time I can finally take up practicing seriously. I first tried learning from videos I found online but eventually gave up on those when it became to complicated for me to follow. After that, I tried getting help from my dad but that did not help much since our schedules are mostly conflicting. Finally, I decided to seek professional help and started looking for classes here in Adelaide. I started browsing for groups online but I hesitated to join since most of them are for experienced drummers. Fortunately, I found a site that helped me find a suitable drum class within my area. Once I finished typing in some details, I was able to find a class that can accommodate my schedule. I now attended four classes already and I am having a great time. I learned the basics right away and was able to feel more comfortable with the people around me. I guess learning the drums made me more sociable in a way. Now I have met a few new friends and I am excited to continue on with my journey in learning how to play the drums.
