There are young prodigies I run into every once in awhile. This 7 year old boy Avery Molek is just that. He's a drummer. Wow can he hang with the big drummers!
Avery lives in a small town outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was born on September 11th 2006. His dad played a little guitar, other than that his parents have no musical background. They love Rock ‘n’ Roll. Avery was always surrounded by music.
Santa brought Avery one toy guitar, and one tiny drum set when he was 2. He watched music videos instead of cartoons, and wanted his mom dress him up and paint his face like the band members of Kiss.
His cover of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” went viral. The phone started ringing and hundreds of emails poured in daily including numerous requests for interviews and appearances from national television shows. With their son’s young age in mind and his well-being as their top priority, Avery’s parents decline all requests…except one. That request came from ABC’s Good Morning America who had featured Avery’s video on their show on a day when country music mega-star, Brad Paisley, was a guest. Mr. Paisley was so impressed with what he witnessed on that video that he encouraged GMA to invite Avery on the show the following week to play with him live.

Such an incredible talent at a young age! He didn't need the best electronic drum set or the most expensive guitar, just a huge amount of passion. It will be exciting to see where Avery Molek ends up!
