Sam's Story - Junior Drumline

My name is Sam and I play the bass drum in the Junior Drumline Program with the Conservatory of Performing Arts.

I play several instruments such as the piano, violin and guitar but I have always wanted to play the drums.  This was an opportunity for me to try out what it is like to play different types of drums.  I found that I really liked playing the large bass drum.  I have been successful at registering beats, playing with other students and performing before audiences. Drumline is fun and I have been able to meet new people who have similar interests as I have. 

One of the best parts of drumline is that we have been able to perform at the Ram’s football game and at a musical festival.  I really liked being on the field at Mosaic Field to perform.  It was even better when the Rider’s Drumline Band came over to watch us as we performed.

I would strongly encourage anyone who is interested in playing drums or being in a band to join the Junior Drumline Program.  I have become a better musician and have met some great people because of it.
