The Positive Spin on Drums

Nolin Smith drum cover
This week's blog showcases Traveling Drum School student Nolin Smith performing a drum cover of "Dynamite, by Taio Cruz. Nolin, who recently celebrated his 12th birthday, has been playing drums since he was 6, and has been a drum school student since age 8. He also has been playing bongos at his church for a few years now. Nolin has come a long way in drum set and hand percussion studies. This song showcases his solid timekeeping, good feel and tasteful additions. Beyond that, he knows lots of patterns (beats, rolls, etc) and can definitley put together an impressive solo. Hope you all enjoy this clip!!
