On the lookout for a great percussion instrument set for kids that will cover all the bases? We’ve got you covered!

Playing an instrument is a great way for your kids on so many levels, especially their motor skills and eye-hand coordination (we have written a separate article on this topic here). Percussion sets are no different from any of the other instruments out there in that regard.

In this article, we’re going to make a list of some of the best percussion instrument sets for kids out there for you to get your hands on.

Drumming has been my passion for over 18 years. I play quite a few different genres and I really enjoy experimenting with hybrid kits that blend acoustic and electronic drums. I love all things drumming!
