Drum Solo!

7 Nov

Normally on Sundays I like to feature a Home Movie, mostly because 1. I take a lot of them 2. It’s fun to share and 3. It makes posting on the weekend a whole lot easier. You’re probably going to be very thankful that I don’t have one for you today, because what I wanted to share is Isobel and her first time playing the drums.

My cousin’s husband (who’s been in the family so long I usually just refer to him as ‘my cousin’) is a musician. Actually, so is my cousin and much of my family. Including me. I have music in my family on both sides, but my cousin’s husband is still actively making and recording music. Naturally, he is encouraging his daughter Victoria to experiment with all sorts of instruments. Recently he bought her this drum set.

Isobel wasted absolutely no time and immediately started playing it herself.

I’m not sure how, other than possibly by seeing musicians on Yo Gabba Gabba, but she knew exactly how the drum set worked.

She even worked the foot pedal on the bass drum, no problem.

Looks like someone’s going to be asking Santa for a drum set one of these years.

    Me: “Aww…it’s always good to see small children playing drum sets!”

    Scott: “Are you looking at smallchildrenplaydrumsets.org?”

        No…he’s just a straight-faced smartass. And a drummer.

    Is it too late to mention how my relationship with my parents went downhill once I obtained my drumset?

      LOL, we are very aware of drum set problems. 😉
