Lawrence Halter

You don't really need to be a beefcake to perform with your instruments well. You only need to condition your body so that you can withstand your own practice regimen and the live performances. When I was still learning how to play drums, I found it hard to twist and swing my arms from one side to another, especially when hitting my brass cymbals on one side, and then suddenly moving to snare and hi-hats.

But as time went by, while juggling physical exercise and learning how to read musical sheets, I learned how to strengthen my body enough to play well.
