I’m Larissa, but a lot of people know me as Lars. I’ve been playing drums since 2017 when I first saw a drumming video on YouTube and I was instantly inspired and hooked on the instrument. I really relate to, and enjoy playing the drums because I’m a loud person, so what better way to be loud than by playing drums? I never played an instrument before the drums, but my amazing drum instructor (Zack) at School Of Rock in Mokena, Illinois really helped me adjust, and learn everything I know today. Thanks to Zack, I would never even had heard of this contest, so I owe that to him. Working on this solo was one of the most fun, yet stressful things I’ve had to do for drums, and I’ve had to play in front of lots of people on a stage before! Anyways, even if I don’t win this contest, I’m still so happy I’ve had the opportunity to do this, even with the disadvantage of the quarantine, keeping my from physically seeing my drum instructor, but we made do with what we had, and I’m very proud of the outcome!
