Hello! My name is Michelle, I live in Angola, Indiana USA. I’m 33 years old and am a self taught drummer. I married a drummer 15 years ago, and about 4 years into marriage I decided to take the time to learn. At the time we had two little boys, and so I had more time to devote to practice. Over the last 11 years I’ve continued practicing through three more pregnancies. Now, with 5 children to care for I don’t have as much time to play and progress as much as I’d like to. I do set aside time one day a week to play with our band, in which we mainly do 90’s covers and original songs. I wanted to make my submission video reflect what my life can be like at times. I thought I’d humorously show you what the demands of motherhood can place on my practice sessions. Even making and producing this video was a challenge!! Hope you enjoy watching, and as a note, none of our children we’re neglected during the making of this video! My generous husband took his time to babysit and help produce the movie.
