Episode 021: What are the best stretching routines for drummers?

I just tuned into episode 021 —- “What are the best stretching routines for drummers?” Nice.

As a physical therapist, sports and conditioning specialist, and percussionist, I really enjoyed the flow of Steve’s podcast and content.

It’s so obvious that Steve has a passion for engaging and informing his listeners. I have now become even more inspired to present great podcast info for my own drumming patients and clients.

I am looking forward to checking out Steve’s other podcast.
