Does David Foster play the drums?

Although the drums aren’t David Foster’s go-to instrument, he has a working knowledge of all instruments.

Speaking to Ravinia Backstage in 2018, David said of his high school band teacher: “…he let me play the trumpet, tuba, flute, bassoon, clarinet, everything. I was good enough that I could keep up with the other kids. Every three months it was another instrument. I wasn’t great, but I got a working knowledge of all the instruments.”

Hooked On Everything also writes that David is “…proficient with the keyboard, piano, synthesizer and long list of other musical instruments.

His true passion is for the piano, which he details on his website’s biography page. But, as a talented musician, it’s very likely that David has an understanding of how to play the drums.
