Allison Miller: Melodic Drummer

Allison was one of the generous musicians who shared her take on practice with me as I was researching practice for the book, The Practice of Practice

One of the things she said that stuck with me is that sometimes, for a practice session, she’ll go into it with no plan, no goals beyond getting into “the zone” or a meditative state, or a trance state, or whatever you want to call it. Practice as just playing. A good practice, no pun intended. Everything in moderation, including moderation.

Check out her take on melodic drumming:
