My name is Meghan Healey and I have been playing drums since 1st grade. My parents say that before I could even walk I would turn over bins and pots to make my own drum set and use pencils as sticks. As the middle child of 5, it is not always easy to have my voice heard, but there's no way they can forget about me when I'm constantly making racket in the basement with my playing. Now that I'm in 8th grade, I'm still as passionate about drums as ever. I am the lead drummer in my middle school jazz band and have been since I was in 3rd grade. I also play the French Horn in my school band and have played Clarinet, Trumpet, and Trombone in the past. I have never taken part in this contest before but I am excited to be a part of it even if i don't win.
