So, yes, we’ve got this separate to ‘learn to play an instrument’. But playing the drums is kinda how the HATW story started, so it only seems fair we give it it’s own page.

Drumming is great because you can take out your anger or frustration on a drum kit instead of yourself. You can wear yourself out by playing as hard, loud, and fast as you can (sorry neighbours). Plus if you’re playing a full kit, you need to concentrate on doing 4 different things with each of your limbs, rather than thinking about your problems. So it can help clear your head too!

Watch Si’s story below:


We even made our own drum sticks to help get you started. Check ’em out!
