Ruby aged 7

This video was taken at the 2009 Billy Hyde Drummer's Play Off and shows one of my students, 7-year old Ruby (one of only two girls), in her performance at the finals showcase.

Ruby's performance is even more amazing because it is her first solo piece and she only started it one month prior to the finals. Ruby has been 'playing' on drums since the age of about 2 but had only been learning formally for 8 months when this video was taken.

I hope to post more video's of Ruby's progress in the coming months.

Enjoy :)


  1. Impressive co-ordination! I'm no drummer, I can't even work my hands and feet together. Well done to Ruby, her talent will take her a long way!

  2. Thanks bokehlicious - I'll be uploading more of Ruby in the next few weeks...she loves drumming and percussion :)
