Welcome to the Al’s Drum School podcast hosted by Alex Moody and, on occasion, co-hosted by Jordan Whittingham.
This podcast is our way of talking directly to drummers, musicians (aspiring or pro), and music industry entrepreneurs about our journey of growing a thriving Drum School.
Al’s Drum School teaches all levels of drummer in person, online, and on-demand and is growing a community passionate about drumming, building exciting products in the music space, or planning to have a career in this industry.
For honest and open chats, mixed with humour and some random talk as well – this is the podcast for you!
This weeks episode, our pilot episode, did not go off without a hitch and as such there is a sound/audio issue when Alex talks that will be resolved for future editions. Hopefully you can bear with us and still enjoy the conversation. For links and show notes see below.
