My name is Bianca Richardson I have been playing drums for seven years, knowing my calling has been to be a musician I started drumming when I was 12 years old and was involved in a drumline doing drum core with Ross Middle School in Cerritos, California and played fourth bass till I attended Richard Gahr High School. Freshman year I made tenor line and started playing a full drum set for jazz band in high school at the age of 14. For all four years of high school, I played at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center for an event called The Band-O-Rama performing for famous figures and the community. Senior year I received a gold medal for outstanding musicianship. After I graduated and made it known that music was my life, I continued studying music and its history. I currently play drums at my church, Cottonwood Church in Los Alamitos, California. We just finished recording a live album/DVD called Generation to Generation. If that wasn’t enough of a blessing, three weeks ago I had the opportunity to play for a Christian television station called JCTV broadcast on TBN, to promote the church’s’ album. When I’m not serving at Cottonwood, my time is dedicated to doing gigs at other churches, coffee shops, lounges, etc. By playing at places that call for different styles and genres of music, I find that it helps me gain improvisation skills and knowledge of how to construct jam sessions. I also had the opportunity to play at a jazz festival at Point Loma University in San Diego with a quartet, which included piano, bass, guitar, and drums. We played with a vocal jazz choir and were all very proud of the success we helped bring to the show. Currently I am touring with an artist by the name of Preme Writez and I do numerous of gigs/studio sessions around in Los Angeles and Orange County, while being a full time student at Musicians Institute
