Zinaida Kurinna

On January 30 of this year, the American group “Twenty One Pilots” came to Ukraine, to my city, Kiev.
My youngest daughter really wanted to get to their concert, but all the tickets were sold out a few months ago. I really wanted to give my child happiness in the form of these tickets so I began to search hard for them.

... three months ago I didn’t even suspect that this day would be a turning point in my life !!! ... at the concert I received such a charge that now I am sure that this concert was needed not for my girl, but for me !!!

... the energy that came from Josh and Tyler, the response energy from our young people, who stood and singing all their songs in English, the energy with which Josh beat the drums ... Words can’t describe this... You need to feel it...
I was overwhelmed with emotions and impressions .... I lived with this ... and after 2 weeks, February 14, for my birthday, I bought myself the most expensive gift - my first drumsticks ...
Why am I doing this? I still did not understand myself, because I do not have drums and I never studied in a music school, I’m 52 years old and I work in the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine as an economist, BUT! I always admired the great drummers and for me people who know how to play drums are GODS !!!!

I began to look for a teacher to play the drums ... a week later, on February 21, for the first time I sat down at the acoustic drums ... my hands and feet did not obey me and lived with some kind of life I could not understand. But I really wanted to learn how to play ...
After working at the Ministry, every Thursday evening from 7 to 8 o’clock, I take drums lessons ... for almost 2 months now I’ve run after work at my rehearsals ...
If only you could know how much I am waiting for these Thursdays !!!
... how much I dream to have my drums !!!

... Now this is my life ... now I live by this !!!

    “Why am I doing this? I still did not understand myself, because I do not have drums and I never studied in a music school” – that’s my story))
