L.J. Wilson is just two weeks shy of his second birthday, but he’s already gaining fame as a drummer. A video of L.J. playing a tiny drum kit went viral as viewers marveled at the toddler’s skills.

His dad Justin is a musician, and he said via Skype that the video captured L.J. playing along with a song that includes a melody the toddler came up with himself.

“Once the beat drops he just got so excited and just goes crazy on the drums,” Justin said.

L.J.’s mom Shelana credits her husband for sharing so many musical lessons with her son.

“I feel like in every minute of my son’s day music is somehow incorporated, so I don’t think he had a chance but to explore those musical genes,” she said.

Both parents agree the young drummer shows extreme discipline when it comes to practice. He gets behind the kit for two to three hours a day.

“And if he’s not on the drums he’s beating on something,” his dad says.
