You might be watching this video in wonder and thinking: “23 months old? 23? Just under 2 years? How can it be?” But the thing is this lil guy does look that age. What’s unbelievable is that he’s that age and he can play the drums with that level of co-ordination. Yes, it sounds like his dad’s guiding him, but still, who does that at 23 months old?
It’s so sweet at the start of the video when he’s sitting there, patiently, waiting to start, and the little smile he cracks just before he does his thing on the drums.
The rhythm’s innate in him because he’s able to look up at the camera and look to his right (around the 13 sec point) without missing much of a beat.
What a guy.
Plus he’s playing two instruments at the same time. He’s not just tapping on a drum with two sticks (which would be equally adorable though ‘cos he’s sooo cute).
OK, so he does miss the odd instrument momentarily in some parts, but he keeps going! A true professional!
And when the track in the background is done, Howard isn’t quite done himself — he adds a little extra of his own at the end with a final tap on the drums for good measure!
Too too cute.
