Laura Segura Verastegui

Hi everyone! My name is Laura Segura, I'm 24 years old and I'm from Peru 🙂
I remember that I wanted to be a guitarist when I was a little girl and I started taking lessons when I was 6, but when I went to my current local church for the 1st time when I was 12, I saw that the drummer was a girl, and that's when my life changed. I fell in love with drums, completely ❤
I'm now one of the drummers of my local church, and even though it has been difficult for me to afford music lessons as I really wanted, God's been really good to me because I've been able to sit behind a drumset for the past 9 years at church, and I also took drum lessons for 1 year when I was 15 and then a couple of months of more lessons in 2018. Basically, my whole drum education is based on Youtube videos and rehearsals with the worship band at church 😁 And not having a drumset of my own was never an excuse. My bed and my pad were a perfect drumset for me all these years :v
Now, this is my first time participating in a contest. I heard about the HLAG contest a few years ago, but I never felt like I could do it because I didn't feel prepared. But this year I decided to put my fears aside, rent a drumset this year, practice everyday since february, and participate 🙂 And it has been the most challenging month for me 😅 So, whatever the final results may be, I already feel very proud of myself for doing this 🙂

    And you should be proud! This is an excellent performance, well deserving of a prize. I’m a self-taught drummer myself and when growing up played pots with a wooden spoons for my drumsticks accompanying my father playing jazz on piano. I got my own drums only after dropping out of grad school at Princeton in 1967 and then played with a bunch of bands until 1982 and then again for a year each in 2000 and 2008 while working full time at two scholarsly publishing houses, the university presses of Princeton and Penn State, where we published a lot of books about your country, including one on the Peruvian economy by your former president, Pedro-Pablo Kuczynski, who remains a friend today. He got an alumni award at Princeton in 2016 and I got to meet his wife and two daughters, the younger one still attending Princeton. Keep up the good work on drums and you will go far. Good luck in this contest!

    Què feliz y orgullosa me siento por ti hijita, esto es un sueño hecho realidad, esperaste años para ingresar al concurso, venciste miedos, temores y ahora estàs tan cerca de la meta. Te amo con todo mi corazòn y soy testigo de lo mucho que te has esforzado desde los 12 años cuando por primera vez viste a la hermanita de la iglesia y tu deseo fuè tocar como ella. Diego fuè parte importante de este aprender y le agradezco a Dios por su dedicaciòn como tambièn a Alterna la academia donde estudiaste. Pero sobretodo te felicito por tu disciplina para aprender aùn sin tener una bateria en casa. La iglesia ha sido tu mejor plataforma y sala de ensayo. Dios es muy bueno y Sus planes perfectos. Para mi ya eres una GANADORA. Mi baterista favorita 👸❤️
