Kids Drum Kit

A kids drum kit is a great idea to introduce your child to the world of music. The drums give your child the freedom to learn a musical instrument without needing complicated lessons.

Drum kits for kids are designed to make it easy for your children to learn the drums. Drumming is a great start for children of all ages – it’s a fun activity! It doesn’t take a lot of skill or effort to hit a drum, and kids love the instant feedback it creates! The thud from the bass drum, a sharp whack from the snare, and a big crash from the cymbal are sounds that kids enjoy making!

Although it may drive you a little crazy – children love having an instant impact on their environment, and this encourages them to put more and more time into learning to play the drums.

If you’re musically inclined, and can play an instrument, play along with your kids! This will teach them how to keep a beat, and motivate them to continue playing. Playing alongside your child on the drums – with a guitar or keyboard – essentially creating a jam session is not only fun, but encourages them to keep going – providing positive feedback and taking away some of the focus on themselves.

When choosing a drum kit for your children, you’ve got a range of choices and price points. Drum kits for kids are generally designed for children aged 3 and up. Often, entry level drum kits for kids are a 3 drum kit. They consist of a bass drum, snare drum, a tom and a cymbal. These are perfect for kids just starting out – and for you to ‘test the waters’ and to see if they enjoy drumming and stay interested in it.

As you go up in price – you’ll find 4 and 5 piece sets. These introduce extra cymbals and toms, giving more variety of sounds and provide more of a challenge for higher skill levels. If your child is over 8, we recommend you purchase a 4 or 5 piece kit – this will give them an extra challenge, and they’re not going  to ‘outgrow’ the kit so fast. Whilst you generally pay more, it’s worth the extra investment.
