Today you went for your first "official" drum lesson. You were so excited,
clutching your new manuscript book and your beloved stick bag, you
couldn't wait to get going!
You are 4 years old.
I guess it comes as no surprise that the love of drumming flows through
you.....just like your Daddy.
|Daddy and you, playing hand drums....you were only 10 days old but you loved it even then.|
It feels like you have always played the drums.....Daddy gave you your first
lesson when you were 10 days old....you were still that new-born yellow
colour and you were so tiny....but you looked Daddy straight in the eye and
grabbed hold of his finger and played along....you enjoyed it from the very start.
You got your first drum kit at Christmas....you were 11 months old....You
loved it! .........and from then on, there has been no stopping you!
|Christmas Day 2007....your first Drum Kit.|
You have helped out Daddy in his drums shows............You have played
your Kit at a few festivals........you have played in a huge drum circle at
Townsville........you have even played drums at the percussion show in
Alice Springs.....although you were a bit shy and sat on Dad's lap,....well
you were only 2 after all!
|All ready to play at Boolara Folk Festival....2011.|
You play Drums ALL the time at home and you are getting very
good.....you can now play a rock beat and a samba! You practised and
practised untill you got it right.....you are so proud of yourself because you
worked very hard and now you can do it!
I am very proud of you also!
I love to watch you play when you think I'm not looking.....you have such a
passion inside of you for such a little boy.......My wish for you, is that you
have that passion always, no matter what you choose to do or be when
you grow up......weather it be a drummer, butcher, plumber or
superhero......don't ever loose it!
|Your first "official" Drum lesson.|
I wonder whats in store for my special little man.
Love Mummy. xx
