Default Re: Your parent's attitude towards your drumming

The only ones in my family who played a musical instrument were me and two of my cousins who played piano and guitar.An aunt I had ,who was the mother of my cousin that played piano, encouraged me to play drums,and actually bought me my first Rascals album.

I was never encouraged to play drums by my parents,in fact my dad said that drums weren't a musical instrument.That didn't deter me,and it also meant that I would have to work to pay for everything.

It also meant limited practice time,which is why I was never as good as I could have been.But....better something than nothing.
