I've working on the speed of my single strokes lately by doing the "Singles Pyramid" which I learned from #HueyYanPan via his Periscope broadcasts. I began playing at 86 b.p.m.s a week or so ago, now I'm up to 92 b.p.m.
My goal is 100! Thanks Huei!

I’m thinking what would drummers, or people who are interested in drumming like to see on my website.
I could put up performance videos like this one:Lecture Recital performance which is from a lecture recital on Dunumba I presented this past fall. Or, would they rather see educational demonstrations such as this video:Basic Strokes: 8s, 4s, doubles, singles and paradiddles. Or, I could put up my trasnscription of a djembe solo by Gbanworo Keïta from “Dounoumbe” on Percussions de Guinée vol.1.
I’m interested in your comments.
Thank you for reading.
Drummers from left to right: Keith Moone, Mito Camara, PJ Roduta, Dan Meunier and (me) Gordon Nunn.

Directions to 448 Studios
The address is for my teaching studio is 448 Butler Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15223. However, building that houses it is located .02 miles off of Butler, it’s in the back section of a large industrial park. You should enter the industrial park from Butler St. across from the address 436 Butler Street.
The building has a key code access, so give me a call when you arrive.
In John Caldwell’s Recording Studio
This past weekend I was in the recording studio laying down tracks for four of Mathew Tembo’s songs. It was a great experience!
In a few weeks I’ll be teaming up with Harmony Pilates in Pittsburgh to present a set of three Pilates mat classes with percussion accompaniment.
I’m looking forward to this new opportunity!
October 24, 31 and November 7
It was Hot Summer Night in Bedford with Queen City Funk and Soul. A big crowd was on hand to hear some great soul music by one of the region’s best bands.
I’ve played percussion with QCFS for over 10 years and it’s always a great time when we get together.
Our next performance in on August 6 at the Garrett County Fair near Deep Creek Maryland.
