I’m 17 years old. No laptop, no PC (or atleast one with a RAM or storage big enough). Stuck on Garageband in an iPad Mini. No mic too. Soon I hope to be able to share creations made from better music softwares, studios, and equipment. I also want to be able to try out new instruments because right now I only know to play keys, and I'm a beginner in playing the guitar. I’m also here to gather advice since I am still a newbie getting into the music industry. I look forward into meeting talented people in this community and learning at the same time! Thanks for reading and have a nice day wherever you are!!




What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is art. Its variety of genres take me to different worlds and imaginations alike depending on my feelings or moods.

What is your music dream?

I’d love to learn how to make different types of music and enjoy doing it at the same time. I want to explore all sorts of instruments, acoustic, electric, or computerized!

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I would change the reality of people judging others regarding any topic through disrespectful and irrational manners. Everyone deserves to be criticized in a proper way. In addition, people should criticisms maturely.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I’ll Be There For You by The Mofatts, since me and my brothers sang it all the time.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

James Bay, Martin Garrix, Avicii, John Mayer.

What inspires you to make music?

The process seems fun and the possibility of meeting different people who share the same interests makes me inspired. Also I would like to be heard.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Just enjoy life. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy everything.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Nervous, but I would like to get used to it. Still I reside more on the behind the scenes production processes.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Respect for different tastes and genres. Old or new. Natural or electronic. Hiphop, country, rock, pop, indie, EDM, or combinations.

What do you think of Drooble?

I am new to the website and I think it has a very good intention for musicians to be heard and to connect.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My laziness. Also financial problems. I am stuck using Garageband because I have no laptop or PC for better music-making programs. I am also not quite good at instruments and have an average singing voice. That is why I would very much appreciate getting tips from the community in this website.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes, I go to local shows and gigs and the rest is up for every single one to enjoy the atmosphere.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Sadly the most effective is money and advertisement. But in a few occasions, when hard work, perseverance, and talent are all noticed within one individual, it could trend a long way.
