Valery Abril Gomez

Colombia

Hello! My name is Valery Abril, I´m 19 years old and I´m passionate about God, drums and music. I love to practice my drums, to feel music and to learn every day.
My parents bought me my drums when I was 10 years old but I really started to practice when I was 14 years old.
My dad died when I was 13 years old, I really miss him and sometimes I don´t know if I´m making the right decision about dreaming with the drums. The situation hasn´t been easy without my hero but I want to give my best every day and make something different in music, to tell people that it is hope and love, and to believe that with passion everything is possible.
My dream is to become a professional drummer, I love drum solos, I haven´t studied in the university but I love to search and investigate what I love, which is drums.
My dream is to have a new drums to be able to record ideas and transmit my passion with the drums.
I play drums at my church and If I can spend 1 or 8 hours of my day playing drums, I enjoy that time and try to get better, I have a lot to learn but I´m willing to learn with all my heart.
I can express myself with drums, maybe I don´t say a lot of words speaking but I express my emotions through the drums!
Like my daddy Enrique said: Perseverance overcomes resistance.
Thank you for reading this!

    Hi I’m a 9 year old drummer from Australia. I really love your playing, and you are my favorite in the competition. I Especially love the tune Rejoice, I hope you do really well and win. I have entered a video in the under 13 section, so if you get a chance please take a look as I would love you to see it. I’m really sorry about your Dad, but no matter what happens always keep playing the drums because I think your fantastic! Lots of love Gabriella Andrews.
