I'm 57 years old and started playing drums in the school music program when I was 10. The drum teacher wanted me to play clarinet but I insisted on playing the drums. I was the only female drummer through most of Junior High and High School. I continued playing when I went away to college, subbing as an extra snare drum player in marching band, or in the percussion pit when needed. My favorite bands were Styx, Boston and Journey and I loved Neil Peart and Steve Smith.
Then adult life happened, and like many I stopped playing except to pick up my sticks every once in awhile. I would play occasionally at church or work functions.
I joined the Drumeo online lesson community last July and it has rekindled my love of the drumset. I love collaborating with other women all across the globe and its so much fun to see us encouraging each other on our learning journey. I choose the Electro-Pop play along from the Drumeo site, because it is such a positive and uplifting track and perfect for the electronic kit.
