How do you tell your kid is a drummer?

BOSTON | Fear not if your kid, to the annoyance of school teachers, is in constant motion, tapping out rhythms with feet, hands and pencils. This is not a behavioral issue. It’s a matter of expression. Your kid just happens to be a drummer.

On my visit to Boston, I sat down for a conversation with Member, Dave Rodenhiser. Dave attended the Berklee College of Music but it became apparent that with a full performing and private teaching schedule he needed to focus on the work at hand. Dave shares a charming story of how he built his first drum set, paying for it by doing variety of chores and odd jobs.
