I'm Clare Martyn from Ireland and I decided to play along with Ireland most famous musical show Riverdance. I wore green as well for Ireland!
Riverdance growing up for me was one of the reasons I started Drums, the passion, commitment and the seamless mix between music and dance, caught me as a child and I have played and loved Irish music since. I play the Irish drum the Bodhran, this was my first percussion instrument, so this video really was from my heart.
As I said I started on the Bodhran, then Drum kit, Marching Snare and then orchestra Percussion which I love!!
I was in the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland for 5 years playing percussion and got to experience symphonies like Mahler 1 or film music like Pirates of the Caribbean. This is where I developed a deep love for the orchestra, the rich sounds it brings and its passion !!
I want to become a drummer on the world stage and will keeping trying everyday to do it. I am also a Film composer that composes with Orchestra and electronics and I love it. It's just the beginning I hope, and thank you so much for reading!!
My dreams are high, but I'm enjoying every minute!!
