This drum was the first instrument he showed an interest in as my Armenian father owned one. He'd let my son play and he was pretty good at it for a kid. The younger son is also musical, but he just liked to fool around, not serious about it at all. They both have that creative gene, right-brain thing, though.

The teacher, the students and some observers were my models each week. While the others had their doumbek lesson, I was having my own lesson in observing and drawing the moving figure. It was a great time.
