With two active kids, my house is noisy enough. They like to sing and dance and they will bang on things to imitate the sounds of the percussion instruments in a band or orchestra. So when I was looking around at the very instruments and when my eldest daughter asked about piano lessons, I was thinking of getting something for my youngest to bang on so that she will not feel left out. I was thinking to buy Paiste cymbal or something similar to that since she needs a big more coordination before we move her to something that requires more dexterity. She is an active kid and I know she will enjoy making her own sweet (loud anyway) music on a cymbal.
