Giant Triangle debut

Toronto is music city

I'm feeling really at home in Toronto and am playing a lot of music! My band Giant Triangle has its first gig on October 12, and I've been going to a lot of drum circles & jam sessions. I also played for an outdoor yoga class at the Junction Music Festival this weekend. I still have a day job but I'm finding the more I focus on music, the better things go in all aspects of my life. I feel like not depending on music for money allows me to be less stressed & more creative (though I wish I had more time for it!) It's about improving my own musical skills and spending as much time in "the zone" as possible. Good times.

drummer librarian

The band I'm drumming in has about 20 original songs.

I've made an index card for each one where I write notes for myself.

Cards are also an easy way to tell which songs we've done and which are left as the rehearsal goes along...
