Drum Like a Pro

Our daughter loves music, and I love to watch her when she dances to it. Not only that she can also play drums. I admire her for her interest on playing the drums at such early age. As a mother I am very proud of my daughter. One of the things that Akesha and her Papa do during their playtime is jamming...lol! Hubby will play the drums and Akesha will dance. Below is a clip of Akesha playing the drum. I took the video at night so pardon me if it is dark. Enjoy! (Will blog hop in a moment)


Between the ages of 1 and 3, kids respond best to music when they actively experience it. Passive listening (like in the car) is fine, but look for opportunities to get your child rocking, marching, rolling, tapping, clapping, and moving to the beat.
Music is a natural part of life for toddlers. They might sing to their stuffed animals, tap their feet to the rhythm of nursery rhymes, and enjoy the sound of their parents singing to them — even if mom and dad can't quite carry a tune.
But this early introduction to music does more than entertain. It can kickstart learning, serve as an important cue in a child's routine, and offer lifelong benefits.
Music contributes to what experts call "a rich sensory environment." This simply means exposing kids to a wide variety of tastes, smells, textures, colors, and sounds — experiences that can forge more pathways between the cells in their brains.

LOL! Akesha is destined for greatness and will follow in the footsteps of her mommy in music if not Hollywood! LOL! I'm amazed at how clever(not to mention adorable) she really is for her age.

I recall when my nephew got himself a drum set. Yeah, you better invest in ear plugs as Dorothy suggested! LOL!
