Crystal Burks

When I was 3 years old, I taught myself how to play the drums. I have been playing drums nonstop; it’s truly a love of mine. At my high school, Cleveland School of the Arts, I played drums for their jazz ensemble and their orchestra. In 2017, I won first place in a contest called Teen Talent. I was the only girl in the drum competition. Last year I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music at Cleveland State School of Music. There, my major was Music Performance. I am also in the college honors Society as a Magna Cum Laude. I played drums for the college’s big band, jazz combos, and pop/rock groups. Even before going to school I already taught myself how to play different styles of music on the drum kit at a very young age. I’ve gotten the chance to play drums all over the United States. I played in different churches all around the US, I been in rock bands(and currently in a rock band), jazz and Latin bands.
