I often have parents ask me if it’s ok if there six year old comes for a drum lesson. While I advise it’s best to wait another year or so sometimes they are adamant that they want to give them a try.
I’m not good at saying no and have been pleasantly surprised that a couple of the six year olds that came for lessons actually took to it really well and are showing great promise though this is the exception rather than the rule!
On the other end of the scale I have my oldest student Edna who is 82! She has health issues and can’t get around too good but can groove away to The Eagles Greatest Hits all day. She always wanted to play the drums but never got around to it until she was retired and widowed. Good on her. What an inspiration!
