My name is Kate Kuziakina. I am 9 years old.
This is my second time when I participate in the Hit Like A Girl competition (I was a finalist of HLAG 2016). To me Hit Like A Girl is as a very important exam which checks what you have achieved during the past year. Also, HLAG is a great chance to meet many very talented girls - both participants and Judges - who are so cool in drumming and whose example is an invaluable guide to improve your own skills and grow as a musician.
Let me introduce myself.
I have been playing drums since I was 6 years old. Drums mean to me much more than dolls and games. I fall asleep with my drum sticks more often than with a teddy bear.
I am a self-taught drummer. We live in a village at a good distance off Kyiv, Ukraine. There is no music school nearby, especially with the speciality "Drums." So I've learned drumming via Internet. Sometimes friends of my Dad who are professional drummers give me lessons, too. Also, I have been fortunate to perform with such rock bands as Mad Heads, Tabula Rasa, Vopli Vidoplyasova, and some other - in the clubs and live. It was an incredible experience that helped me a lot to improve as a drummer.
I create drum covers of rock and pop songs and put them on my YouTube channel. My older sister helps me with filming and editing the videos. Some of those videos are real music video clips.
My dream is to become a professional drummer. I want to be a versatile musician and master different drumming styles.
Thank you so much for viewing my video and voting for me! May all your dreams come true!
