Lessons of a different kind: Secretary Markus Blume, responsible for science and arts (and hence also for the music colleges in Bavaria) took a drum lesson! The initial spark behind that was the campaign INSTRUMENT OF THE YEAR: DRUMSET – for which yours truly is the patron. The event was hosted by the University for Music and Theater, Munich  and president Prof. Lydia Grün. Dr. Thomas Goppel represented the Bayerischer Musikrat. Of course minister Blume is now properly equipped with a pair of Claus Hessler Signature Sticks as well as a copy of DAILY DRUMSET WORKOUT.  I assume staying on course is for sure also a helpful feature in politics 🙂 Anyhow, great to see the drumset receiving that sort of attention – well deserved!
