Teach An Old Mom New Tricks?

Since I can't learn to play the hammered dulcimer, due to the fact that we don't own a hammered dulcimer and probably won't be buying one in the near future, I have decided to learn to play the drums instead :-)

Actually, Aidan just started taking drum lessons with the band (MPPB). Since I have to drive him to the lessons and wait for him to finish, I have decided to learn the snare drum with him (they are group lessons). We are having a great time practicing our new skills. It is great mother/son bonding time. I have the advantage of being able to read music. He has the advantage of being young!

Soon, we will both be able to accompany Evan while he pipes. Okay, not so soon, but maybe someday. And maybe, just maybe, this will all make me a better hammered dulcimer player someday :-)

  1. You rock Barb! What a super mom you are! We had a great time at the concert. We had Kailey and Cassandra here this weekend. I am one very tired Grandma so I am off to bed early tonight.
