I have been playing 6 and a half years and have been addicted since my very first lesson! I put in the hours to improve my skills and I was over the moon to pass grade 8 with a distinction in 2020.
My drums have really helped me cope with the strange 12 months that the worldwide pandemic brought about. I was unable to play with my usual band, but was invited to collaborate with some remote recordings with people I’d met at a jam night- hence the green screen and the click track in my video! My video became part of a full band recording that went out on Facebook. It was very well received.
I can’t wait to get back to playing live gigs again. It still amuses me to see the reactions from audiences when a 5foot tall female gets behind the drums! It’s great to see other females inspired to take up drumming.
I love the adrenaline rush when playing live gigs, and the feeling of achievement!
