I'm a 22 year old percussionist and a drummer. I come from Poland, where I got my bachelor degree in music and now I follow the NAIP master's program at the Prince Claus Conservatory in Groningen. I play percussion since I was 7 because I didn't get a spot in a guitar class. Also, I apparently held an intense hatred towards pans and pots as a child so I played on them. Some things don't change- I still use them while busking from time to time.
I heard about the Ricciotti audition from my Erasmus teacher in Groningen. That was the best spent € 7, - for a group train ticket to Amsterdam ever. What I like the most about Ricciotti is the atmosphere. It's great to play for people in need and make someone's day better, do not get me wrong, but it's so great if you have fun, make friends, attend a constant party and live in a big love bubble in between. I strongly recommend :D
