Sasha T

United Kingdom

I am Sasha, 8 years old from the UK.

I’ve been playing drums for 3 and half years. Back in summer 2019, my parents asked me if I would like to learn any musical instruments. I chose drums because I liked to watch Animal from the Muppets. I’ve been loving everything about drums since – creative rhythm and sounds I can make, the journey to challenge myself, and making friends to support and inspire each other.

I love any types of music; pop, rock, funk, jazz, latin, classical and so on and I’ve been trying to learn wide range of styles. For this contest, I decided to cover “Joining a Fan Club” by Jellyfish. This song has great harmony, big sound and very creative drums, and I loved this song when I discovered it. I should also mention that Andy Stummer, the lead singer and the drummer of Jellyfish, is inspirational to me. He wrote songs and sang while he played drums standing at the same time in live.

My drum heroes are Phil Collins, Art Blakey, Akane from Band-Maid, Bernard Purdie, Mike Miley, Jeremy Stacey and Matt Chamberlain. I am still at the beginning of my drumming journey, and I look forward to discovering many more heroes.

Outside of drums, I play piano. I also like dancing, reading, writing stories and visiting theme parks (I love rollercoasters!). My impact to the world is possibly very small, but I would like to show the world anyone can get better with anything you choose regardless of age, gender, country and appearance, if you work hard and have passion.
