Re: Your parent's attitude towards your drumming
Just about everyone in my family has sang in a chior or played an instrament at one point or another. Growing up my mom always had her instraments around for us to play with. Guitar, violin, trumpit and (electric) piano. My father won't let me keep a real kit set up at home due to the noise/space, but an e-kit is fine. My sister plays sax and clarie as well.
My friends parents are really cool though. We practice twice a week in their garage and they even let us store equiptment there.
