Meredith Smith

United States

Hi, I’m Meredith and this is my first HLAG entry and the first time I’m playing drums for anyone!
I began drumming about 3.5 years ago when my boys moved onto other interests and found myself with a few months left of a lesson package . I jumped at the chance to learn drums because as a child I ALWAYS wanted to play but was made to take years of piano instead.
Drumming makes everything better. It fills my soul in a way that nothing else ever has and despite a very hectic life, I make sure to find time for it, even if it’s just a few minutes on the pad.
I’m so grateful to have found an amazing mentor and teacher, Andrew Klein, that has introduced a world of percussion, ideas and new genres of music to my life.
I love all kinds of music but gravitate toward heavier rock/metal and my favorite drummer is Alex Van Halen.

Drums are Walberg & Auge Artist Custom curly maple 10, 12, 14, 20, 6.5×14 Ludwig Acrolite Snare, Bosphorus Cymbals

    Congratulations on following your own bliss after raising children (I am a mom myself and have had to put drumming on the back burner for years). Bravo on stepping out of your comfort zone and sharing yourself with us 🙂
