I have been drumming for nine years. The itch to be a drummer started when I saw the preview for the movie "Hop" in 2011. I took my daughters to see that movie just to see the bunny play the drum solo I saw in that preview! A few months later, despite the nagging feeling that I was having a midlife crisis, I went to my local music shop and signed up for my first drum lesson.
Ever since, I have been learning from teachers and practicing faithfully and diligently. But something was missing. Although I have always loved and enjoyed listening to music, I was not having fun behind my kit.
In November of 2019, I met my current and amazing drum teacher, Tim Buell. Tim encouraged me to stop comparing myself to others, love where I am in my drumming journey, and to venture into a more creative and bold mindset. I heard about this contest from a friend and with Tim's help, I worked on this drum cover of one of my favorite songs, "The Policy of Truth", by Depeche Mode. I am truly proud and I love the drummer that I am today.
