I have been playing drums almost 5 years. I was scared of loud noises and wanted to overcome my fear of them, so I took up the drums. This made me have even more of a live for music and is what I'm planning on doing in the future. Before I started playing a teacher tried to discourage me because I'm a girl, she told me "you'll never be able to do it as good as the boys" which made me want to play even more to prove her wrong and that I could do it. 2 years after that I got full marks in both my GCSE performance pieces and actually helped teach other classmates parts of their pieces. I am starting university playing drums after this summer holidays.
