I am a retired telephone technician and a born again musician from Auburn, Maine. I play the drum set and do sound effects. I did not play in the school band as I was having too much fun in a family band where I was a rock star. I stopped playing when I left high School and didn't seriously start over again until I was forty years old. At that point I started taking lessons from an awesome teacher, Dick Demers of Lewiston. I have played in a number of bands and is currently playing for only two, the Fanfare Concert Band and the Saccopee Valley Concert Band. I do not have any family members whe are interested in playing any instruments. As far as my favorite music genre, I will play anything as long as it doesn't involve loud screaming.
