I am Iris, an 11 year old girl from around Hamburg, Germany who loves music, especially rock music and old jazz.
In my school, I'm in a class (6th grade) with focus on music. I hope I will be a Musician someday. I started playing drums when I was 8 after trying hard for a while to convince my parents that playing drums was all I wanted. I grew up having all the rock instruments in the house but drums. Now we have drums too, I also play guitar and I`m catching up with the keyboard.
I absolutely love playing live with a band. I play live almost every day with my dad who is a guitarist. My dream is to have my own band soon. I already found a good guitarist - I am not talking about my dad here 🙂 but a 12 year old boy. One good bass player still needed and we are good to go.
I am the biggest fan of Muse, I know pretty much all of their songs. My parents took me to their concert 2 years ago. I was very happy and I want to see them live again and again. Matt Bellamy is a genius.
Although I don't really have a show-off personality, I like competition because it helps me see where I stand. While back, somebody made a comment about my way of playing drums having something elegant and I loved it. I would like to keep that, if possible.
I know that education is the only real way to succeed.
My mom use to say: "it doesn't matter what you choose to do, important is to take it up to your best and always test your best. Lucky are only a few".
