130 – JP Bouvet: Designing a life around your passion

In this podcast I talk to JP Bouvet who began to make a name for himself in 2011 when he won the Guitar Center Drumoff…and he hasn’t stopped since. JP in now a household drumming name as a performer, teacher and international clinician and runs his website (JPBouvetMusic) as a hub for inspiration and information for drummers. There’s definitely something to be said about JP and his approach to drumming and life as a whole, and he tells all about it in this interview. Listen in as JP opens up about feeling inadequate, comparing yourself to others and why the most important thing to remember is that you’re in control of your life.
