Alex has wanted a drum set for a very long time. He drums on everything all the time. A friend of ours was selling her sons 5 piece starter set because he was ready for a bigger set. We decided to buy the drum set and give it to Alex as an early birthday present. He was so excited!!
I ordered a starter book and DVD from Rainbow Resource, but in the meantime found a free online video instruction for beginners. I know nothing about the drums. I played Clarinet for years and can also play some piano. But, after watching the video I managed to do just fine giving Alex a drum lesson and after working with him for about 20 minutes he could easily play the first rhythm on the video. He has really good rhythm and he loves his drum set. The drums are located in the family room for now, but once the walls and floor are completed, they will move to the living room upstairs.
