Being a musician myself, I can attest to just how difficult it is to play drum sections on most of Van Halen’s songs because Alex Van Halen is an incredibly talented drummer. For this reason, I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears when I watched Eduarda Henklein play through one of Van Halen’s most popular songs, ‘Jump.’
Just like this 4-year-old painter, this young drummer is learning to be a musical artist at a young age and I can only imagine how talented she will be as an adult. Because of her tiny size, you would think that she would have problems hitting the bass drum or reaching the cymbals but she holds her own and wows the crowd.

The more I watch little Eduarda play her drums, the more shocked I am to know that she is only 5 years old! Toddlers love banging on pots and pans and while noisy as this can be, maybe it’s a good thing and let’s them experience sound and rhythm at a young age. If you ever wondered if learning to play an instrument is beneficial to a child’s development, research suggests that is gives a child’s brain a full body workout!
