Weyman Prater - Drums

“To make me a well-rounded kid, my parents thought I should mix up my love for playing sports with music, so I signed up to play the drums in 6th grade. Since I drummed on everything in the house, my parents eventually bought me a drum set a year later. I played the drums for 8th and 9th grade school jazz band at Liberty Park Middle School and Vestavia Hills High School while still playing basketball, football and baseball. This past year, I played football at VHHS while taking drum lessons and participating in Mason Music’s Rock Band League. Currently, I am in two garage bands that meet at my house (my neighbors love that) and I play in my church’s worship service at Mountain Brook Community Church as well as our youth worship team. Taking lessons from John Mark has taken my drumming to a new level.”
