#DrumStudentTabloids: David Leighton


Check out that eye of the tiger. Just another day in the studio for David. Determination is the name of the game for this guy. Call em quarter notes, call em sixteenth notes… David’s got those 48 Bar exercises in Ted Reed’s Syncopation book DOWN. Then there’s the rock beats. Every day I send David home with some new beats to devour, he comes back calm, cool, collected, rehearsed, and ready to show me what he practiced. Always a treat to see David’s mom and sister too. 3’s a party, after all. David and I are focused on some Beatles tunes at the moment. I’m pumped to hear Hard Days Night next week. Look out Ringo!
