In my book, Whole Person Drumming-- Your Journey Into Rhythm, you will learn to drum as I cover drumming basics and beyond. My own journey started with a serendipitous encounter with Babatunde Olatunji when I was only ten and over the years, has included disappointments, self-doubt and ultimate fulfillment and gratification by following my passion for drumming and teaching. Here at Kickstarter, I am offering my expertise as a drumming teacher in exchange for your help with all aspects of publishing including production, distribution and marketing of both the book and the videos.

Risks and challenges

I understand that some of you prefer to read books in an e-format such as Kindle. Well, this book will be available in digital format as well as print! There are some new challenges for me in learning how to work with a videographer to record the drum music, but everything is coming along swimmingly. I will send updates during the production and finalization of the project!~
