Impressions of Edinburgh Napier – Gareth Dylan Smith

In early February 2017 we were delighted to welcome drummer, educator, and author Gareth Dylan Smith, of The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, to present a handful of guest lectures to our students. His energy and enthusiasm for music and education was inspiring. He spoke with eloquence and empathy on Eudaimonia in music in a thought-provoking presentation that reminded us all of the importance of enjoying ourselves in our chosen vocations. The concepts he discussed are explored fully in his recent publication I Drum, Therefore I Am
