When I started playing drums in the US Air Force Academy Cadet Gospel Choir in 1990, the music directors constantly reminded of how bad my timing was (in a good, encouraging way). Although I had never played on a drum kit before, they still gave me the chance to play drums as a part of this travelling choir. So, I would spend hours working to improve my timing and overall playing ability.
