Drum?

Postby heyhoe » Wed Jun 03, 2009 10:36 am

Hi,

I want to know if anyone has his/her child learning to play drum. My child who's 4 has been asking for it.

Do you think it is suitable to learn at this age? I've reservation as I'm not sure how long his interest will last. Also, as it's rather loud, I wonder if this will affect the neighbours?

Appreciate your feedback.

You can try Music Clef at Suntec. Their drum lessons are quite good.

my son wanted to learn everything when he was that age, including violin and drums. After he asks for it for a while, he will forget and then move on to something else...
now that he is older, he wants to learn less cos it means less playing time for him :lol:

:lol: How true.

I bought my ds for a trial last week. I don't think he's ready yet cause he's rather short for his age, plus too playful....just wanna hit. I guess we will wait a while more.

My son is 2.5yo & he started to hold sticks & 'play' drums since he was 18mths.

He's having 'unofficial' lessons with my cousins who are drummers on a mini set my mum bought for him. He can understand basic rhythm and imitate the sets that my cousins show him. He can beat a simple rhythm on the drums to follow any music that is being played (he prefers the fast tunes).

I'm looking for a music school that will offer lessons for 3yo, anyone has good recommendations? I'm willing to travel around SG since my parents are the ones who are insisting that we should send him for lessons & they've volunteered to ferry him to classes.

I only have one comment : please sound proof the room where your child will be practising drums.

My mum's new neighbour is a nightmare - he plays drums at full force and it can last 3 hours at a go. When he does that, my mum has to close all doors and windows to shut out the drummings. And trust me, many neighbours have "invited" the men in blue over for this reason.

I've called them & their fees are abit exp, plus their schedule does not really fit ours (clash with my son's swimming class).

I won't be buying a drum, my house is small :) But I've ordered an electronic practise pad for him. Can plug headphones so will not disturb neighbours :)
