175 BPM

I used to play drums in 8th grade. I quit the trumpet and viola in grade school so I could focus on the skins. Our little drum corps was a motley crew of derelicts. We played what we wanted when we wanted regardless of what the sheet music called for. I still remember taking my final exam. The questions were all about timing and notes and music stuff. I had no clue. I flunked it. The director gave me a D- for my overall grade and told me not to come back out for band next year. If I only I would've rejected his rejection... this could've been me...
