A has begun to expand her musical interests and is now dabbling in drums. Her guitar teacher TS is a multi-talented musician and shreds on all instruments, including drums, so he's more than qualified to give her some instruction. I think it's good for her to get a diverse set of musical experiences, and she is on percussions in her wind ensemble - she plays guitar for the jazz band. Also, she's got music in her blood so she tends to have a feel for whatever instrument she takes on. At least that was the case for piano and guitar, and I've heard her playing drums and it's not bad.
Another benefit of her learning the basics of drums is that she can give some tips to her brother, which he has not objected to. Plus, we have the electric drum set, so there is ample opportunity to practice. I'm not sure where all this will lead, but it's cool to see the kids interested in something musical.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to daniel ab for the pic.
