Featured 15: Ranton

tumblr_leirpiXQIk1qa5peq.jpgWhen I was younger, I would visit my uncles house all the time.  I went because my another one of my uncles would always be playing the drums.  I never actually got to see him play it, I never even saw the drum set.  I only got to hear him play.  Sometimes I would hear him playing to songs that I knew.  Whenever I heard him playing the drums, I would be so fascinated by the way he could make music.  Afterwords, I would always go home and watch videos of drummers and drumlines.

One day, I went to my uncles house but I didn’t hear the drum set playing.  So I went to where my uncle would play the drums.  What I found was a sad sight.  Apparently the whole drum set had been torn apart and thrown out.  All that was left were some drumsticks, most of them broken and a snare drum.  I picked up the snare and found a pair of sticks that were still good.

That was when I started playing the snare and became even more fascinated. From that day on, I decided that I would play in a drum line someday.  I am proud to say that I have achieved that dream, and I’m loving every minute of it.  This was my inspiration to play.
