How often and where do you reherse? I like to spend time behind drums and to walk. So you can concentrate
How have you develop­ed since you started with the music? At first it was hard for me. Now I'm at school for drummers and understand a lot. This gives me ideas for my music and it's just interesting. It is always interesting to find out what I did not know.
