Hey, I’m Charlie and I’m 14 from Melbourne, Australia and I reckon I can ‘Hit Like A Girl’ or at least I hope I can.
I’ve been playing drums since I was 6 years old, but the love for drumming was there long before. I love music, and everything it represents. My greatest intention is to make my mark on the music world and bring that same love I have for music, and especially playing drums, to others.
I have an amazing teacher, Niko, who has guided me and helped me achieve 3 school music scholarships for drumming over the past 3 years. He has encouraged me to have a go at every opportunity through working hard and letting my passion for playing drums come to life.
So, here I am, once again having a go at the HLAG Contest, but most of all being a part of this fantastic opportunity for all the amazing and talented female drummers from all over the world!
As far as drumming inspirations go, I really admire Cindy Blackman Santana. I love her back story, and I love her diversity as a drummer. I’m starting to expand more from rock into jazz and she is a great role model.
I wish everyone the greatest of luck and hope you’ll spare a minute to vote for me.
Rocking On & Rocking Out…. Charlie :))
