Brayden was enrolled in a rhythm classroom at 5 years old, learning to whistle, sing and clap along to various children’s songs. He started piano lessons at 6, and moved on to learning the guitar, when he was 8, because he thought it was “cooler”. His parents gave him a guitar, as a gift, but he never even picked it up! At 9 years old, he found the percussive setting on the keyboard and decided that he wanted to be a drummer. One day, he walked up to his dad in the garage and asked, “Dad? Can I play the drums?” It was touching to find out that his Grandpa Earl, who had died before he was born, had actually played the drums. Brayden's heart is warmed to know that he and his grandpa shared a love for the drums.
