The truth about drummers


Thanks to Spinal Taps’ portrayal, drummers have a bad rap as being unreliable and self-destructive. Nothing could be further from the truth.   My friend Mike’s son Zach  has not been corrupted in any way by the drumming habit, despite playing for bands with names like Acid Reign (see blogroll).  He takes lessons from a guy named Kenny Dennard

 My son wanted to play the drums, but they don’t offer them in 5th grade band. The guy at Hyde Music where my son rented his saxophone said the reason was that 50 boys will sign up to play drums and it becomes chaos. It might look something like this:

So  maybe next year.

    Where is he going to practice playing the drums?

    You will need to request some feedback at home on that one.

    It’s not like he’s going to be pounding the drums with all his strength.

    Drums can be very loud, but you can actually practice and not make any more noise than you would with another instrument. Even less a lot of the time, actually.

    So there.
