Yep, that's me...Drummer-Girl-Rockin'-Out! I had my first lesson today, complete with an audience of ten. Such curious children wanting to watch their teacher make an idiot of herself. It was lots of fun. We had electric drums, turned on the microphone and away we went. Today's lesson was surprisingly easy.

And you know, because I am 50% my mother's child, I couldn't end on a dull note...so after dutifully playing the part, I said, "Okay, I'll practice at home." When they all stood up to leave - I banged out my own version - which I think was much better. I was in marching band after all. I have rhythm! Yep -- my kids were pretty impressed. At least that's how I'm choosing to interpret their faces.
