1) Jeff Porcaro plays Rosanna: One of my all time favorite drummers playing the classic groove to Rosanna. Even if you are not a drumset player, you will appreciate this amazing video.

2) Episode 026: Composing using the Rudiments: Over the past year, I have been writing some new snare drum pieces. I will be sharing these soon. I hope to see some of your pieces as well.

3) Why Do We Study Music?: A great justification of why we study music. Thank you TED Ed.

4) Vic Firth Marimba Literature Library: VicFirth.com is a destination website for a lot of percussion content. Go spend some time check out the site.
