Casey Tichy

Hi. I’m Casey Tichy. I live in Easton, CT and I am a freshman at Joel Barlow High School. I had quite an artistic upbringing; growing up immersed in Latvian folk dancing and music for thirteen years. I also participated in theater groups getting many lead roles.
I have been taking lessons and playing drums at Jim Royle Drum Studio with my teacher, Brian Ente for almost 4 years. I also played steel pan in an ensemble group at the studio.

Drums has always been a part of me ever since I was 2 years old. My grandparents would give me pots and pans and I would hit them with the metal and wooden spoons to play in the kitchen when they were watching me. I really loved the different sounds and beats I could make.
At middle school, I chose percussion out of all the instruments because percussion seemed really, really cool. But who knew percussion was one class with eight boys. At least I was the first girl in my middle school to go through percussion for a full three years! This year I participated in School of Rock 70’s rock radio. I love being on stage.

Drums pushed me through the struggles of dyslexia, auditory processing and my juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. I believe that using coordination on the drum set has really helped me with my dyslexia and auditory processing. School is a challenge but that doesn’t stop my passion for drums.
I love Rock and Roll and Alternative Music and that’s why I picked Blink 182 “All the Small Things”.

My drum teacher told me about a concert in NYC. When I saw the Hit Like a Girl concert in NYC, I got really excited and I am happy that there is an organization that celebrates girls and women playing drums. Drumming should not be gender specific!
