Katie Forster

Hello! Im back 🙂

This year I present to you one of my final high school music exam pieces: Zero Tolerance - Death. This song is one of four that I spent the majority of 2020 preparing and after a successful exam performance I got the amazing opportunity to go back to school and record it (Shout out to Mr Connolly!).

This year I have taken up some different responsibilities as a musician, as I have taken up teaching. Already, I have learned so much about how we think when we play drums, how I process and play new beats, and how young minds begin to process the idea of a paradiddle. Being able to pass down the knowledge i've accumulated over the last 10 years playing drums is truly a privilege, and it has brought a new found appreciation for the art of drumming.

As for my musical goals for 2021, they will be kept simple. I have begun Uni this year, studying a bachelor of Engineering; So in between the endless maths homework, I endeavour to continue my passion behind the drum kit improve on my double kick speed and technique.

Hope you enjoy my entry, and Goodluck to all the other contestants!

    That was excellent. You play very smooth and relaxed. The pattern where you were choking the crash cymbal was cool. So many times hi hat and ride cymbal patterns are buried in the audio mix. I could hear yours even without my hearing aids. 🙂 Well done! Good luck in HLAG!
