|Jeff, Jackie Lane & 'Maestro' Khalid Saleem
Mendon Ponds Park, New York - Summer 2005
|All of My Days, I've been 'Fascinated' by Drums & Percussion ! !
But it was in 1988, that I got my first taste of West African Drumming . . .
In the Mid-90's, SUNY Brockport hired a Master Drummer to teach classes, and
I attended many sessions of Khalid Saleem's Community Drumming at the college.
In 2004, I began an intensive two-year training with Khalid, as an assistant,
and was appointed by NY State as a Volunteer to the Department of Dance.
=> In 2011, I attended REMO's HealthRHYTHMS Basic Course. Also,
Jim Donovan's Drum Circle Facilitator/Teacher Training . . . and several
of Jim's day-long classes and workshops. I am honored to consider
myself a part of the Rhythm Revival, and look forward to Much
More from Jim Donovan . . . Teacher / Mentor / Friend ! !
I have turned a fun hobby into a wonderful career, and my World
Drum collection has continued to grow with each passing year ! !

|Laura and Jeff both come from families in the teaching
profession. As we've looked back at our separate lives
growing up, we seem to have traveled similar paths that
eventually led us to each other. It was a lovely winter's
day, the 21st of July 1990, when we were married at
Laura's hometown church in Lambayeque, Peru. This
has been a wonderful start for our dreams coming true.
A Partnership that Can't Be Measured by Material Gains !!
