Hello everyone. My name is Graeme Hare and I’m a drummer/teacher from the North East of England. I’ve recently joined the Istanbul Mehmet family and this is my first blog.
I just wanted to say hi, introduce myself and outline the content of future blogs.
I picked up my new cymbals this morning and had some promo pictures taken with the team at drumshop UK. Huge thanks to Carl Thomson from Istanbul Mehmet and Andy Anderson from Drumshop UK for their help setting this up and putting faith in me.I won’t let you down!
Really looking forward to promoting these fantastic cymbals!
Pushing my Youtube content featuring Istanbul Mehmet cymbals is a big part of my overall plan. I’ve already started creating backing tracks for the new Trinity College drum grades that will help teachers and students across the world.
Here’s one of the finished backing tracks. Future videos will feature footage of me playing Istanbul Mehmet products.
Watch “Triple Decker. Grade 2. Trinity College. Slow and fast backing track.” on YouTube
I’m about to start recording and filming the next video this weekend.
As for future blogs/content, I thought I would write about how I make my living as a pro drummer and everything that goes with it. Including all the different type of gigs I play on, teaching, business, how Covid has affected the gigging scene etc, etc.
I hope you will find this sort of thing useful? I like to think I can give some good advice to aspiring young drummers trying to make it as I’ve been playing for 34 years and I’ve made a living from drumming for about 26 of those years.
Feel free to interact with me on this platform, facebook or any of the other social media possibilities.
