Default Re: Hardest instruments to play

I m not really a drum teacher, but sometimes Im asked by the parents to teach a kid..first thing I check is if the kid can clap the hands on 2 and 4 to random songs on the radio. Often they can not.
Also when I go out listening to a live band, I watch the audience, and I often notice that at the table next to me, there is a pretty woman, clapping her hands not even close to be in time, but just pretenting to clap her hands somehow...
It might sond funny, but I think think in terms of drumming I found out that there is a lot of people for which clapping hands in time on 2 and 4 is the hardest instrument to play....
