From Ages 1 to 5: When Very Young Drummers Get Wicked

Posted by Billyjam, September 1, 2010 05:03am | Post a Comment
If I had to pick only one instrument to listen to it would have to be the drum. I love the drums and could listen to drumming all day long, so long as it's played by someone with a bit of rhythm in them, of course. And I've noticed with the drums, as with other instruments, that younger players (as in ages five and under) are often quite adept at playing the instrument.

So I recently went online to find a slew of young drummers aged one (yes, a one year old!) to five and I was surprised at the number of talented young kids out there with some serious raw rhythm & funky drumming talent. Of the five videos below many were shot two or three years ago, so obviously the players have grown up considerably since.

The first drumming clip below is 5 year old Kendall. The 4 year old is Igor Falecki from Poland and you can read more about him here. Three year old Levi Eschelman's video below has already gotten nearly nine million hits on YouTube and was originally featured on the Be a Drumhead  DVD featuring Will Kennedy & Bob Gatzen. The amazing two year old drummer is Zaiven (well, he is actually 2 years, 3 months old). He was captured in the video below playing his first public performance in Denver, Colorado in 2007. And from that same year is the (then) one year old  Baby Charli. Wicked!
