Hi, my name is Ailsa - I am 9 years old and for the last couple of years, I have started drumming. For my ninth birthday, I got an electronic drum pad kit which is great for beginners like me.
I enjoy drumming because it's liberating and exciting when you're playing. There are no set rules on how to play which make it even more fun to have a go.
The fact that there are loads of other girls playing drums is really amazing and inspiring. I have been looking on the HLAG website and I have seen so many girls who rock on the drums! Some of them don't just play rock songs, they play other songs which I feel are really creative. I look up to other drummers and wish to be like them some day.
I am really shocked by some of the girl's talents as staying in time is pretty tricky! Well, at least for me..!
