Setting up before big show for Congresswoman Frederika Wilson at the Black Caucus yearly event.

I am a female musician that believes in the power of music. Musician be a healer, a comforter, and studies show that it can even relieve stress. If music is so powerful, surely the instrumentalists that create or play the music are equally as powerful. Musicians and singers don’t always realize how powerful they are. How important it is to generate positive vibrations when expressing their art.

I started playing drums in church, so I quickly learned how important music is to spirituality. How it touches and reaches all human kind. From a little baby to an aging adult. Music can make you feel happy or sad. It can make you feel love, and can make you feel hate.

I’ve played for various artists from jazz, rock, gospel and R&B venues. There have been some ups and downs, but ultimately has been the best learning experience. I have experienced life through rhythm. If you think about it … “Everything that has life, has rhythm”.

Hoping to share different perspectives of how people view music. How music makes them feel to create it, to live it.   How to work to in the industry and get the BEST results.   How musicians can give of their talent and prosper as well.    Love sharing and learning from great musicians and artists.   

 

You are More Than a Musician

You are an individual business entrepreneur. You have the capability of generating multiple streams of income by using your creative skills. The music business can be prosperous, but it is not always consistent and a steady flow of income. You will not be affected if you are continuously learning new skills and re-inventing yourself.

Set goals and don’t be afraid of your vision.   Be creative and actually learn how to leverage an income as a musician.  I will share my ideas and experiences along the way.    I hope to provide information that will stir up your creativity and allow you to grow in building your brand or business.  

Find Your Beat

Live life to the fullest by setting yourself up to succeed. Develop good habits that will follow you to your golden years. Learn how to control compulsive spending and how to invest in your future. You can help a young musician along the way by being smart with your financial decisions.

DONT MISS A BEAT !!

Music is Universal

Looking forward to learning about musicians in other countries and the challenges they face.

      Thank you so much for the compliment. Hopefully we will get back to work this year ! 🙂

  6. Dj Lady Drummer is definitely a show you don’t want to miss. I went to a show at Fairview beach Maryland and It was like no other. The way she performs on the drums can be in comparison of Mozart on the keyboard and violin
