Watch amazing 11 year-old kid playing Dream Theater on drums

The 11 year-old Brazilian Felipe Santos has a bright future on the drums. In a published Facebook video, Felipe plays “Metropolis Pt. 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper” and “The Dance Of Eternity”, two of the most difficult Dream Theater song  to play.


The videos’ success were so big that Felipe’s mother said that Mike Portnoy watched and said that the wants to meet the little drummer soon.

Due to the difficulty of playing “The Dance Of Eternity”, the track was used in the process that selected Mike Mangini to Portnoy’s place when he announced his departure in 2010.

Take a look:

Felipe said “The dance of Eternity” is the hardest Dream Theater song to play on drums. It took “4 days” of intense work after all his daily activities to get it done. Thanks to all my friends, drummers, musicians for watching and sharing. If he was naturally motivated to excel himself , with all these positive feedbacks he can’t wait for more challenges!Rock on! #drums #drummer #progressiverock #dreamtheater #progressivemetal #mikeportnoy #mikemangini #youngtalent #thedanceofeternity #music

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
