‘Playing fast around the drums is one thing. But to play music, to play with people for others to listen to, that’s something else. That’s a whole other world.’ – Tony Williams

“Kyle’s strong musical background and technical training really made all the difference to the quality of instruction that he gave to Ethan. He was not just taught how to play the drums, but how to understand the different techniques and genres. He continues to play the drums on a regular basis and often still refers back to the time that he was receiving lessons from Kyle.“
