His first drum lesson
We’ve finally enrolled Ethan for drum lessons. He has been learning beginner drum beats from YouTube but doesn’t know what to do with those beats so I had to get a drum teacher to assist him. He had his first lesson today and enjoyed every bit of it as finally after a week having the drum set at home, he can now drum to songs!
The drum teacher taught Ethan to read drum notes. After struggling learning to read piano notes I find reading drum notes to be such a breeze! Ethan finds it easier reading drum notes too and had no trouble coping with the lesson today.

Finally Ethan jammed with his teacher before the end of the class.
It was a rocking good 40 minutes we had today. Ethan really enjoyed the lessons and I enjoyed seeing him play.
The teacher recommended this Trinity Guildhall Drum Introducing Kit book (RM59.90) for Ethan and we practiced playing that at home. It is not as easy as we thought but Ethan is catching up. He’ll need lots and lots of practice. There’s no short cuts in learning drum nor piano. He’ll need to practice hard and for him to do that, I have to work harder in guiding him too!
