My name is Alyssa. I'm 14 years old and in 8th grade. I live in Upstate New York. I began playing drums 4 years ago in my elementary school. I am the drummer/percussionist in a local youth band called "Filled to the Brim". We perform at local events throughout the summer & have just recorded our first album! I am also a percussionist in my Jr. High School's Concert & Jazz bands. My main musical influences are Neil Peart of Rush, Coldplay, The Beatles and U2. One day I hope to become a professional musician.
