    My youngest is the one who is musically inclined in the family. At the age of 3 or 4, you’d see him headbanging while tapping at the table while listening to rock music. On his 5th birthday, his dad gave him a toy drum set. But now is a different thing, he wants to play a real drum set already. We’re now looking for a drum lesson which is fit for his age.
