SWLA's own musical child prodigy

Posted: Updated:
MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -

"He just wouldn't stop banging on things. All day, everyday."

Moss Bluff's Ryan Clemons is talking about her 4-year-old son, Tyler. Differentiating Tyler's innate nature of banging on things, from an actual musical ability, she said she could tell that something was different.

"We bought him a drum set, and until this day, he plays it everyday," said Clemons.

Listening to the 4-year-old play his drum set, it's evident he's destined for greatness, carefully playing songs as his family sings along. He even knows musical lingo.

"Let's do a slow tempo!," he yells out before playing one of his favorite songs.

"I want to be a musician," Tyler said when asked what he wants to do in the future.

And he's on the right track, already having his first professional gig playing the drums for the children's choir at his church.

"Starting in the church is so important," said Clemons. "God is at the front of our lives and it's important that Tyler know and have that foundation."

Coming from a musical family, Tyler even dabbles in the piano and guitar.
