Hi! My name is Marianne and I am 21 years old! Drums are my number 1 passion and I've been playing them 11 years now. I started when I was on a 3rd grade, my music teacher asked me to try drum set and I must admit, it was a love from the first sight. First I played rock and wanted to be a metal drummer (as one of my huge influences Jukka Nevalainen from Nightwish). I was also a huge fan of Muse and I practiced every song from every album. First seven years I was self-taught but then I got accepted for a music high school, where I got my first drum lessons. Now I study drums and I'm graduating as a professional musician this spring. My other influences are Jukka Kuoppamäki from Finnish band called Kingston Wall and Anika Nilles. My musical goal is to make my living as a drummer.
