Drum-Crazy Farm Boy Plays on Makeshift Kit

A UK toddler with a passion for percussion loves playing on drum sets every chance he gets – even on makeshift kits made of buckets, his mom says.

This video, recorded by mother Caroline Seignot, shows clips of little Oliver from ages 18 months to 22 months, as he plays various drums.

“He has always enjoyed tapping to music, but was totally inspired at the Haslemere Fringe Music Festival,” Seignot told Storyful. “Now he drums on anything and everything!” Credit: Caroline Seignot via Storyful
