    I picked up a new drum student and finding it really challenging to teach him. He's playing along with me but struggling to get him to learn more challenging rudiments. I could use some advice on what I could do to get him further along. Here's a video of our progress so far:

    Tom, there are times when I seriously worry about you. I do like the Howdy Doody Signature snare drum.

    Did you borrow the sticks from Spaz?
