Sunway Giza Mall celebrated its 10th Anniversary on Saturday and both the boys were invited to perform in collaboration with United Piano Sunway Giza. Both Ethan and Ayden performed two songs each. Let me share some photos first. The boys with their drum teacher, Teacher Mazlan. Now let’s watch their performances videos: Ayden’s performance of the first song – HANDS CLAP Ethan’s performance of the first song – JUST GIVE ME A REASON Ayden’s performance […]
Most of my readers know both my boys are avid drummers as I regularly share videos of their drum covers. I even created a Youtube playlist especially for all their drum covers so it will be easier to follow their updates. You can track their updates here -> Drum Covers They are slowly but surely upgrading their drum set from the basic 5-piece set to an elaborate set of their dreams. I wanted to contribute […]
Last Sunday (25/8/2019) was a very memorable day for our drummer boys as they both get to perform LIVE in a mall in the Klang Valley. Big brother Ethan is used to performing as he is the school’s drummer so I am not too worried for him. I was more concerned for little Ayden as this is only his second time performing for a crowd yet he nailed it effortlessly. The Daddy and I are […]
1st August 2019 This date will forever be embedded in Ethan’s memory as this is the day he got to meet his idols – the members of the awesome rock band Mad August in person. When I posted some pictures on my FB yesterday, a friend commented, “They are like the Malaysia version of Beyond now” and I must agree with him. So not only Ethan got to meet them, he also had the privilege […]
You’ve watched Ayden play the simplified version of Uptown Funk from his Grade 1 book. You’ve probably watched me trying to play that same song too. Yes, the keyword there is TRY as I am still unable to play it accurately today. Now let’s see how big bro Ethan does it but of course he’ll be playing the ORIGINAL and COMPLETE version of Uptown Funk.
Both my drummer boys are on a roll. They are churning out drum covers faster than I can update my blog Ethan’s primary school teacher requested for two songs from him – Despacito and 我们不一样 WO MEN BU YI YANG. Ethan gets help from his drum teacher to teach him. I’ve shared 我们不一样 WO MEN BU YI YANG earlier so here is Ethan playing Despacito: Drummer Ethan @ 11Y1M If you are keen to watch Ethan’s previous […]
After sharing a video of Little Drummer Ayden playing Uptown Funk in my previous post, it’s time to share Big Brother Ethan’s latest drum cover. Can you imagine how great a neighbour we are with these two budding drummers at home? Ethan’s drum cover this time is a Chinese song – 我们不一样. I don’t know the meaning of this song but I like listening to it. Ethan learns to play shuffle beats on the hi hats for […]
A brand new day on a brand new week. Today I would like to share Ethan’s latest drum cover – It’s My Life by Bon Jovi. According to Ethan, this song is easier to play compared to the more challenging BURN he did previously. BURN remains as his most challenging cover todate. Ethan is still very much passionate about drumming. We are lucky he has an equally passionate and patient drum teacher to guide him […]
Is the Baby Shark craze still on? Ayden listened to this song when he was very little but recently it became a hit all over again. Since the boys has nothing much to do during the school holidays, we recorded this Baby Shark Dance and Drum Cover by Little Ayden and big brother Drummer Ethan. Hope you enjoy the video: Check-out the compilation of their music videos here.
Ethan plays the drum and piano a lot during the school holidays. It keeps him occupied. Ed Sheeran’s PERFECT is trending again since the release of Perfect Symphony with Andrea Bocelli and it prompted Ethan to play this song. This is also the first song he learns to play by himself. Take a listen to his drum cover to Perfect: Check-out the rest of their music videos here.
Bzz bzz bzz… we are busy as a bee. Just the other day I shared Ethan’s drum performance at First City University College. Now I have two more videos to share as he performed with his band members for his school’s Talent Night last Saturday. Because this is a live band performance and includes many of his schoolmates (other than himself), I decided to blur out the name of the school for privacy purposes. They […]
It is the end of the academic year for 2017. Ethan is no longer occupied with studies and homework but is now busy with many drum performances ahead. Last week, he received an invitation to perform at First City UC Idol Semi-Final that was held today. He did not have much time to prepare so we just decided for him to play any song that he is most comfortable with. He is not a participant […]
It has been so long since I last uploaded a video of Ethan’s drumming. Drumming has taken a back seat in his life at the moment as he has been busy with other stuffs but he still attends drumming lessons once a week. He still plays the drum every once in a while though as he’ll be sitting for Grade 6 exam next month. He gets bored when he has no performance scheduled in the […]
Today’s agenda is having Ethan perform at Sunway Giza for a musical concert. He performed two Grade 6 exam pieces in front of an audience. A week ago I suggested for Ethan to ditch the book and play by ear as I find it weird to see a drummer playing with a book in front of him. Today, he proves to me that he is able to do that – playing without his exam book […]
Ethan went to school late today as he attended a rehearsal earlier. He’ll be the opening act for a college’s talent competition this Friday (thanks to Piano Station for arranging it) and today is his first rehearsal. Ethan in the music room while waiting for the hall to be ready. I like how the students padded the walls with egg cartons. I’ve always wanted to do this for Ethan’s drum room but never got about […]
Ethan first started learning drum in October 2012. He was 5 years old then. And by October 2013, his drum teacher featured him on the cover of his first book ‘Play With Colours’ Volume 1. Through the music school, Ethan got the chance to perform in public. Fast forward to 2015, Ethan is now waiting to sit for his Grade 4 exam somewhere in May or June. And this is one of the exam piece […]
