I’m Jules. One year ago I entered a contest to win a free drum lesson. It was the pandemic and I thought it would be fun. Music has always been a part of my life, but I’d never held a drumstick in my life. This video is me right after that first lesson. The lesson had concluded, but I was determined to get the beats on the 1&3 and the 2&4. I know this video is not a performance. I chose it to submit because I found something that day. I found the pure joy in drumming. One year later and I’m still learning and growing, but most importantly, I’m having so much fun!! Turned in my pots and pans and got an electric kit. I play daily and it makes my heart happy.
