Creative Ways to Practice Your Instrument - Conrad Doucette

In Chapter 10 of 19 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, musician Conrad Doucette answers "Where Are You Trying to Improve Most as a Professional Musician?"  For Doucette, improvement is tied to sharpening his fundamental skills.  As a drummer, practicing rudiments, playing a full kit, working off instructional books and performing with others all point Doucette to a specific conclusion: the more he plays the more he realizes he should be practicing more. 

Conrad Doucette is a Brooklyn musician and the drummer for Takka Takka, which released its 3rd studio album, AM Landscapes, in late 2012.  He has performed with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, The National, Alina Simone, and many other leading acts.  When not performing music, Doucette is the communications and brand director at music licensing and publishing startup Jingle Punks.  Doucette earned a BA in History from the University of Michigan.
