My name is Dan Lewis and I am currently in my second year of study at Newcastle University. I have just turned 21 and my goal is to become a successful working professional musician touring the world.
The purpose of this blog is to share my story as I go along in pursuit of my life's dream. I will share my successes, failures, trials and errors and I will give as many tips I pick up along the way, including performance videos, regular blogs and video blogs. I will also hope to share quotes and my 'song of the week' as I come across new material.
I feel its right to start my first blog post with just a short introduction to myself and what I aim to achieve through this page. I have many things I'm planning on talking about including my experience at Berklee College of Music on their 5 Week Summer Performance Program, Newcastle University and the music department here, my practice tips, the drum clinics I have attended, the year abroad I'm planning on attending next year (2015) and many other amazing experiences I have had the fortune to have attended.
I hope this page will reach people who may take on board and use the tips I have suggested, think about the things I talk about or are just interested in reading and following my story as it pans out.
Thank you in advance to those who read.
Song of the week:
