Hi! My name is Nurzade Gargı. I’m 17 years old and I live in North Cyprus. I have been playing drums for 6 years. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always had an interest in music and percussion. When I was 11, I began taking lessons.
My main style is pop-rock and alternative rock. I also like to play jazz and blues.I play drums in my school band. Drumming is my passion. If I feel angry, anxious or happy, I always sit on my drums and play according to my mood. It makes me feel comfortable and relaxed. I’m getting Grade 6 from LCM Examinations. My dream job is to be a music teacher/musician. My favourite drummers are Anika Nilles, Steve Gadd and Cengiz Tural. I hope to become as succesful as they are.
Being involved to Hit Like A Girl made me so happy and proud as a girl. For me, female drummers are capable as male drummers. This competition encourages girls can do anything they put in their minds. I hope this competition inspires many girls to start playing drums.
My goal is to play in a professional band and become a successful drummer. I hope one day my dreams come true.
