Hi, I’m Brittany O’Reilly and I’ve been playing drums for about 6 years now. As a kid, I always enjoyed playing and listening to music. When I was in 5th grade, I heard a high school jazz band play at my elementary school. The drummer in the ensemble was a girl and she instantly inspired me. That moment is what made me want to become a drummer. My favorite genre of music to play is jazz, but I also play concert and marching percussion. I play in my high school marching band, symphonic band, and top jazz ensemble. I am also a member of the Jazz St. Louis JazzU program. Looking into the future I hope to have a career in music education, so I can influence and inspire the future musicians of the world.
