Christine Barreras

My name is Christine B. I entered HLAG last year in the Beatmaking contest and excited to enter this year in the drumset 40+ category. I am a nurse by profession but have a big heart for drums. I started the love for drums when I was in grade school but my parents back then instead enrolled me in piano lessons as drums are a "male" instrument they insisted. My interest in playing the drums remained and I did teach myself a little bit of theory and played by "ear" and did "air drumming". Fast forward to present, I am currently an online drum student for almost 5 years now and taking drum lessons. I have established a daily drumming exercise and have been actively doing collaborations and drum covers during my off days from work. I always call my drum room my refuge as it gives me a feeling of joy, relaxation and boosts the creativity in me. I will never cease the love for the instrument.
I currently have a Pearl E-pro Live e-kit that I mainly use for practice and a Ludwig Breakbeats acoustic kit with a Yamaha Stage Custom snare.
