Kelly Richardson


I'm a single mother of two, and I have always wanted to learn how to play the drums. Now that my babies are older and my boyfriend recently purchased an electronic kit I no longer have any excuses to put it off any longer. I am 46 and not looking to go pro. I just respect and feel music and want to play my heart and soul out. I can follow a beat and music helps keep me sane.

Music is extremely important to me. It helps me during the rough times and keeps me happy during the good times.
