If someone will pay you, you can drum at a professional level whatever your talent and skill (sadly).
Let's just say, being an accomplished kit drummer is very hard work, at either hobbyist or professional level.
If we're going to parse words to that degree let's not edit my post. I said "relatively few." Again I return to the number of kids in middle school, junior high, and high school who pick up sticks and hit drums. How many of them will ever be good enough to do it for a living? I'd say relatively few is a good description. What descriptor would you use instead?
