How to Manage your Career with Affy Green

Posted on March 11, 2021

On Wednesday 10th March, we had the pleasure of hosting a masterclass with the amazing Affy Green as part of our Women of WaterBear celebrations. Affy is a professional session drummer who has performed with the likes of Becky Hill, Zara Larsson and The Pet Shop Boys to name but a few.

Affy kicked off her masterclass with some incredible technical playing and presented a montage video of her career highlights. She then went on to discuss her professional journey as a session musician, giving some really honest and inspiring insight into the highs and lows she’s so far experienced throughout her career.

‘How to manage your Career’ was the title of this masterclass, and on this subject Affy spoke about the importance of having knowledge in all areas of the industry, the importance of saving, and striving for happiness.

The floor then opened up for WaterBear musicians to ask Affy some of their questions on topics such as the struggles around improvisation and the trust that comes with it, advice on how to become a session musician, what defines success, and whether female drummers are inadequately represented.

Affy then finished off by playing another live track for us which was fantastic.

Thank you so much for your honesty and wisdom, Affy. We can’t wait to have you back again soon!
