My favorite styles are Funk and Jazz-fusion. My favorite bands/artists are Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson. My drumming influences include Eric Moore and Larnell Lewis. My wishes for my drumming future are to become a successful Drummer and to play with famous musicians.

My name is Oliver Haughan, I am 14 years old, from Clondalkin, Co Dublin. I started my drumming journey at around 9 years old. Over this time I experimented in many styles of drumming like dance and little bit of jazz but I prefer the rock and metal side of drumming. My overall favourite band is probably Slipknot as this is where I get most of my drumming influences from as they are fast and aggressive similar to how I play. My hopes for the future are to just keep up my drumming talent as it is a way I can feel relaxed.

My name is Adam Nagajek, I am 16 years old and I am from Renmore, Galway. I started drumming when I was 5 years old. My favorite drumming style would be rock, metal and mostly heavier music but also more recently I have been getting into more melodic/progressive styles as well. As of right now my favorite band is Sleep Token and my drumming influences range from Joey Jordison to Evgeny Novikov (Slaughter to Prevail). My wishes for my drumming future is to gain popularity with my band TaLLLon and try to be known as one of the best drummers in metal.
