I agree some drummers in the Montana area in general have some issues and are very unperfessional. But there are a few diamonds in the ruff. I have been playing for 30 + years and I am from N.Y. and I can tell you its pretty much the same all over the country as far as drummers go some good aples and some bad.

I personaly treat every gig , audition , studio work .... the same act like a professional and do the best job possible. Seems to work out for me.

Greetings and Happy Holidays.Seems to me drummers (drum set drummers) have become categorized in ways that undermine opportunities to be hired for any projects that require more musicianship than say your local hard rock music,since the preconception is that drummers are always too loud,insensitive to the musical situation at hand,and either always under the influence of alcohol or drugs.After having experienced three years of auditioning for projects, I find that this perception i mentioned above dominates the atmosphere in this part of the country. I would enjoy your comments and get ideas on what to do about this situation,and whether any one else has experienced the same conditions.

I have been playing stringed instruments since grade school, studied cello and piano through college. Elementary education degree, music minor. Self-taught on guitar and mandolin. Play all things strings with varying degrees of proficiency. I have taught piano, violin, cello, guitar, mandolin for the past seven years in my studio A Room For Music in Big Sandy, MT. Now am teaching in Huntley (Billings area).

I have a college degree in Music Performance Guitar and I teach. Lessons are $5.00 (U.S.) per session. A session can typically run well over an hour it depends on the student.
