I have always loved this classic Christmas song: The Little Drummer Boy. As a child I never understood the lyrics. All I really cared about was the rhythm. As I got older, I begin to understand the words and realized how a little boy gave the humblest and greatest gift to the baby Jesus: the music of his drums.
So that is how it came to be that drums began to fascinate me. And I would look with awe and wonder to those who can actually the drums so beautifully. Whenever there are parades, I would always be on the lookout for the marching band and of course, their drummers beating to the rhythm with their cool marching band drums.
