Drums were the first musical instrument and have become a global element for centuries. Rhythm is a universal language, so much so that drums appear in some form in every culture of the world. They are easy to learn and produce a visual and visceral response that you won’t find in other instruments.
As long as your child can sit behind a drum set with both feet resting on the foot pedals, he or she is good to go. With proper technique and posture, you don’t have to worry about aggravating joint pains. Drums are an all-age instrument, whether you’re in elementary school or retired.
Although knowing how to read music does help with understanding basic notation, it is definitely not required. Through repetition and instruction, you will learn note values, time signatures, and rests. It may seem confusing at first but with just a few lessons, you should gain an understanding of notation and playing advanced rhythms and drumming patterns.
