I have been a drummer for nine years and my original inspiration was my father. My dad has been a drummer for 30+ years and he was my teacher for eight. I would not be the musician I am today without him and I can’t thank him enough for everything he has given me.
I will always remember my first live performance which took place at my local church. I was about 12 years old at the time and I had never played much worship music before. In all honesty, I sucked. But through that experience I was motivated to grow and become the best I could be. Because of this drive, I soon became that church’s go-to drummer! I really enjoyed this feeling of playing for people so I took that to the next level and started part time at a private school for music.
This school presented a new challenge in the form of the Jazz Ensemble. I had never played Jazz in my life but, thankfully, my band director did not let that get in the way. He helped aid me in learning the style and inspired me to apply that motivation to every area of my life. Currently I am a senior in high school and I continually practice many genres of music including Classic Rock, Metal, Jazz, and Latin. My plan is to go to college for Music Performance and gain as much experience as I can.
