A has been wanting to start drumming, so he got a drum pad and sticks as a holiday gift - but classes won't start until spring. He likes to sit and (try to) drum along with music playing or as he sings a favorite song. He is going to love drum lessons!
G likes to drum too. He picks up the sticks and immediately has a rhythm going. He zones out a little, doesn't look at his hands, and is super quick. He always surprises us.
If we have music playing during the day one of the boys usually grabs the sticks and the pad and starts drumming along...then the other starts on the piano...someone sings...and it just escalates from there. What is the phrase? Controlled Chaos!
Music was such a part of my childhood, and I love watching the boys enjoying and exploring it too, finding what they like, absorbing and experimenting, listening and creating. Great fun!
