I started playing the drums when I was in sixth grade. It was on a musical lesson and we were trying out all the different instruments. I started playing and at first it was difficult, especially with the coordination, but I learned it pretty fast and I got kind of good at it. I played a few times during my four years of high school. Every year we had shows with various themes, for example in sixth grade we made a set of Astrid Lindgren songs and theatre, were I actually played Astrid herself, but that's another story. I played the drums on a few songs throughout the years.
When I started first grade at gymnasiet my main instruments were piano in first grade and then piano and singing in second and third grade. But then we had a lesson called "Prik-ensemble" were we got the chance to play different kinds of instruments to figure out which instrument we wanted to choose for second grade. For example we tried out wind instruments and strings. I played the drums and immediately decided to choose the drums in second grade. The fact that I was the only girl to have drums as my main instrument made it all even better. When it at the same time was a shame that there's only one girl in second grade playing the drums.
I watched the video of the top three female drummers in the world 2013. And since I prefer Rock before Jazz I really liked the first woman, Meytal Cohen. When a person is really good at something, such as Meytal, it looks so simple and easy for them to play. They're all really cool. I admire them.
