Hit. The. Drum.


There is a one-of-a-kind satisfaction you get when you hit a drum.

I used to be a part of a world-class percussion organization: STRYKE. In Hollywood Hills High School, where STRYKE rehearses from Friday to Sunday for several hours, you are shaped into someone who can connect with an audience full of unfamiliar faces.


It is an eerie, but satisfying feeling to hit a drum in unison with 17 others. At STRYKE, you inherit a family of dedicated, talented, and sweat-drenched individuals. Over the course of six months the goal of perfecting a show is in sight, but never fulfilled.

The only thing “perfect” about the process is seeing everyone grow tremendously as the rehearsals and shows go by.

STRYKE is not just a percussion ensemble. It is something that helps mold you into a person that is willing to change for the betterment of not only yourself, but those around you. STRYKE taught me more than high school did about life and I will be forever grateful that I was a part of the group for two years.


Hitting the drum with your best friends could never get old.
