Hi! My name is Caelyn Allman. I’m a 12-year old seventh grader from Chesapeake, Virginia. I have been drumming since I was 3 years old. I started out on a small First Act set. My parents bought me my first full size kit when I was 6 years old.
I started private drum lessons when I was 9 years old. I tried out for my school’s high school praise band at 10. I was so excited to make it! As an eleven year old sixth grader, I tried out for my church’s adult praise band. It was awesome to be accepted into that too!
I still drum in both bands. I enjoy playing a variety of music: Rock, Alternative Rock, Christian, Country; really, everything!! I have learned so much from the talented musicians I play with during the live performances. They inspire me to always try to do my best.
I am excited to continue learning! I feel, as a drummer, you can always learn something new. This is my passion. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest. This is so encouraging for us girls. Good luck to everyone!
