I started playing the drums because I had the passion to play the drums and I love playing the drums so much. I began playing the drums on June 1, 2010 because I caught the drumming bug. I can play all styles of drumming CHR/Top 40, Rock, Hot AC, Classic Rock and Alternative.
I think both boys and girls can play the drums because of self-esteem. I wanted to play the drums for one reason. Because it gives me self control from the cymbals to the drum pedals.
My favorite part of the drums is definitely the drum pedals because with me hitting the drum pedals I can create new beats when I'm drumming and hitting the pedals at the same time. I do both single kick and double kick and love to play hard.
So when it comes to the drums, it really matters to me because it is the only instrument I ever wanted to play.
That is something way cool Kaito. Defending your drumming instructor because he was too slow. What you did Kaito, was the right thing and took yourself under control.
I'm so proud of it Kaito that doing it from your own can really become a better drummer. Kaito, I never took a single drum lesson because I taught myself to play the drums. Not only that, I had prior drumming experience before I got my own kit and that may become a advantage for me.
All it is Kaito, is you behind the drumkit, a pair of drumsticks (5A, 5B or 2B, I use all three) and your sneakers on the drum pedals. (I say sneakers because I hit the drum pedals with my sneakers on sometime Dansko Clogs which I like to do from time to time). I have never drummed barefoot and never will.
All it is, it playing your music and drumming style that matters. Very proud of you Kaito. Rock on.
I Started playing drums cos I like hitting things. When I was 12 some guys who were about 20 asked me to play with them cos their normal drummer was injured. Someone wrote a Story about this. You can read the story at the link below. Some day I hope my story gets made ito a film cos it will be awesome.
I started to play because I had too much anger for my age and rather me going into prison for killing someone I chose the drums. I had some hard times dealing with an illness so I had to drop from playing, than picked it up again, than I got pregnant with my twins at 26 than picked up the drums again a year later since then I've played almost every day. I will go to college in the spring 2012 and plan on playing at ASU. My major will be music/drums so I can't wait. And to continue with my studio projects, giving private lessons and playing with my band. Peace, love and 2 in the chest!
I started playing the drums when I was 11. My sister was in marching band and I always tagged along to watch the drummers. Finally, I asked my parents if I could be in band, and after they saw me practice as hard as I did, they bought me a drum set for christmas. I've since then studied percussion through high school and college, and now I perform in various ensembles of many genres. It has been my greatest passion for a very long time to know all I can, and learn all I can about percussion and it's many fields. And... girl drummers sorta kick ass. ;)
I too was looking for some sort of self-esteem because at the time I felt like there was nothing else going for me. A friend of mine said she was in a band, but her current drummer was rubbish. I lied to her saying I could play the drums a little. She soon found out I could not play but instead of hating me she encouraged me to start lessons. So I tried it and after 18 months i'm now keen to keep on learning new skills in drumming and I LOVE IT.
