Hey I'm Sarah! I'm 24 years old & have been drumming since I was 11. For me it all started with the video game, Rock Band. I fell in love with the game's drum kit, & worked myself up from 'Easy' mode to 'Expert'. When I finally sat behind a real kit, it came naturally to me. Since then I've been rocking out in bands, & playing gigs in bars, casinos, & other types of events throughout the tri-state area.
My drumming heroes are Alex Van Halen, John Bonham, & Jen Ledger. I love all their styles of drumming, & I often mimic their techniques when I'm on my kit. Not to mention Jen Ledger represents all us girl drummers out there!
I decided to use this video of me free-styling for my entry. When I made this video, I was super excited because I had just gotten my new Mapex kit! I love the color of it, it makes me happy! I hope you all like it as well!
I am also diagnosed with primary lymphedema in my legs & feet, & ulcerative colitis. I drum because I want to prove to people out there that nothing can hold you back, nothing can stop you from wanting to live your dream & do what you love! I never let my conditions stop me from living my life & rocking out behind my kit!
Thanks for watching my video & reading my story!
