Episode 57 | Noam Lederman

Drumeo Gab Podcast

Welcome back to another episode of the DrumGAB podcast! This week’s episode is particularly special. Noam and his wife Louise are authors of a children’s book series called Jungle Jam and Noam has graciously provided the book series to my son Harrison and so I have dedicated this episode to my little boy. Who is Noam? Noam is someone that is quite inspiring and if you were to simply watch his Instagram feed you would have no idea to what degree this man has achieved in life so far. He served in the Army, published over 100 books (mostly musical education publications), he and his wife Louise have created a children’s book series called “Jungle Jam”, he is the Principal of a musical enrichment school called “Academy of Rock” and is also a very active professional musician and plays for the chart topping band Captain SKA. He is also a father and a husband and finds time for everything that he closely values in his life. After spending time with him through the creation of this episode we have become very good friends and I find his approach to life very inspiring and left me with some very good feelings about my own life and my personal goals. Key Moments in this Episode - Noam talks about his time in the Army and how it was illegal to play in a band if you were involved with the Army. Do you think that stopped Noam from following his heart? Listen to the incredible story of how he performed on national Israeli television for over a year thinking he had fooled the Army and his CO. - Next we dive into his band Captain SKA. They have topped the charts with their song “Liar, Liar” and made waves with the press. BBC banned them from being played but that didn’t stop the flood of views and support from listeners all over the world. Noam also shares how the band has evolved since then and their new song “Sons and Daughters”. - Noam is the Principal of the musical enrichment school named “Academy of Rock”. Noam gets into significant detail about both his own vision of how he wishes to teach students and the values of this music school. Noam makes a very important point that teaching music to our youth is far too important to half-ass. You MUST be passionate about education and not just look at it as a means of providing yourself with income. This is a great segment. - That leads us to Jungle Jam. Noam explains that Jungle Jam was all about giving back to people. He and his wife work on these books together as a family and it has filled their home with more love and support for one another and I just love this. It is heartwarming to hear him explain what Jungle Jam means to him and his family and how this will hopefully become an animated series for television and there are other plans for it as well. - Noam then talks a bit about his gear and some of the common questions he receives on Instagram. He also shares the purpose of his Instagram page. It is literally just a place for him to experiment with sounds and uses the feedback to help him decide what to keep and what to scrap. He uses Instagram as a large sounding board for his experiments and musical ideas. - We conclude by discussing social media and this is where I pipe in on DrumGAB’s vision with social media and connectivity between myself and my audience and what I hope to provide to them. By this point Noam and I are just talking and reflecting on how we can make social media more “social” and provide value to our community. Concluding Thoughts This is the last podcast for Season 1 of the podcast and it marks an important milestone for DrumGAB. Going into 2018 I have discovered the purpose of this podcast and my socials. It is all about providing value and experiences for our community through content and engagement. Much like Noam’s philosophies on life, we share a great deal of common ideas when it comes to giving back and how we view ourselves in our work and our purpose. I hope that you all enjoyed this past year of content and thank you all for your continued love and support. My goal is to develop further in order to bring more meaningful content to you. It is a journey and I hope that by sharing myself and the guests with you that you find inspiration to stoke your own fire. Make your life what you want it to be. Do the things you want to do. See the results you want to see. Life is precious and incredibly rare so grab life by the horns and make your mark with the opportunity life has given you and shine through. God bless.
