My name is Isabel Pena and I have been consistently drumming for 2 years. My love for drumming started when I participated in an all-girls rocks camp in south east los Angeles called Chicas Rockeras SELA. I was part of the first year of the camp and participated for 4 years. When I first signed up, I wanted to do something different and decided to play the drums. It was a choice well made. When I entered the drumming workshops, I was picking up notes and beats easily and had fun while doing so. I decided to pursue drumming and has taking me to where I am today. My drum instructor was my drum instructor at the camp and saw potential in me, so began getting lesson from her and she is the one who convinced me to submit to hit like a girl. This video was recorded at Musicians institute and was my first time ever being in a recording studio. I chose American idiot by green day because Green Day is one of my favorite bands, I’ve listened to them with my mother since the age of 3. I saw them in concert about 2 years ago and it changed my life forever. The structure of their music, lyrics is simply amazing and makes my want to make jams that are inspired form them. Some of my influences include Joan Jett, Green day, and Bad Cop Bad Cop. Their songs talk about social norms, and not fitting in. It allows me to relate to them and learn new techniques from their music.
