Category: Marching Percussion
Location: Beaverton, Oregon, United States
My name is Irisa Murphy, and I go to Liberty High School in Hillsboro, Oregon. Even in middle school, I had a deep desire to play quads. I started marching on bass drum my freshman year of high school, and moved to quads my sophomore year. Since then, drumming has pulled me through some of the darkest times in my life. My goal is to devote all the time I possibly can to music, in hopes of providing someone else with the same inspiration I was given the first time I saw another female marching percussionist.
