Drum Advice

Ask Katy

Good morning Roger. I have a son,8 yearsold, who wants to learn to play drums. What is your opinion? Is he too young? Must he start with an other instrument? When did you start playing? I 'II be waiting for your answer. Cheers, Marina, Athens,Greece

"Hi Marina , The answer is that its never too early to start playing drums , and you don't even need a drum kit. I started at a very early age using books, kitchen pans and anything I could get my hands on before finally getting my first kit at the age of 13. You don't really have to learn another instrument, good drummers are very sought after in their own right as most kids seem to be attracted more towards being the lead singer or guitar player. Have Fun, Roger."
