It is a fulfillment to finally be able to play my dream piece since 2005 – Hallelujah by Bamboo. This is just the song intro and it took a month of practice to hit every note without fail. I started at speed of 50%, to 60, 70, 80, 90, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99 until I reached the full speed. Coz I remember my teacher taught me the brilliance of “slow practice”. Shout out to my family and neighbors who didn’t get tired of listening to my noise…I mean music, every 6-8pm, for a month. LOL!

I formally learned to play drums in 2021 in the midst of pandemic. I’m technically a newborn drummer. One of the reason I joined in this competition is to be judged by the worlds best female drummers. ../
