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 :-)
