Our little drummer girl


My mom was in a drum and bugle corps in high school and when I was young, she played around with drum sticks and a wooden block practice pad.

My friend Holly heard this story a few years ago and suggested I take my mom to Girls Rock Camp, an annual band camp for women and girl musicians in Atlanta.

That would have been a great idea a few years ago, but I don't think my mom would make that sort of trip now.

Soooo... I decided to bring Girls Rock to mom this Christmas. I gave her drumsticks and a modern version of her old wooden block practice pad.

If you haven't already, watch the video. Just like riding a bike.

I'm looking forward to mom picking up the drums again.

This was truly a perfect moment.

LOVE IT!

Joyce, I'd play piccolo to your cadence any day. The video is cute and I love the pic Robin pulled out of you laughing. Gave ME a perfect moment to share it with you!

How very sweet! And it was very thoughtful of you, Robin! Very! Her laughter is priceless.
