A professional jazz drummer who plays all over the world made a stop in the Bronx Friday, and he just happens to be 11 years old.
Kojo Roney has been honing his drumming skills for the past 10 years, picking up his sticks before he could even walk. He has played in France, Switzerland and Greece with his father's jazz band.
His Bronx stop was for a summer concert in Crotona Park.
Roney must be home schooled because he practices about seven hours a day. Despite the long hours, he says there is nothing else he'd rather do.
The drummer says one of his goals is to teach his peers about jazz, which should be shared with everyone.
