Hi! My name is Damaris from Boulder, Colorado. I’ve been drumming for over 7 years. I think this is the 5th time I’ve been part of the Hit Like A Girl contest. It’s such a great opportunity!
I grew up with drumming in my heart and soul. My parents are fairly musical, so they realized that I wanted to be a great drummer so they got me into lessons and got a drum kit. I’ve been trying to get better ever since. I’ve gone through 3 drum teachers and have learned a lot of new and interesting things to play on the drums. I’m in the jazz band at my high school, and the worship band at my church. And I hope to keep on drumming throughout my life!
This year’s piece is ‘Whole Lotta Love’ by Led Zeppelin. My drum teacher showed me this song and I couldn’t wait to begin playing it — it was a blast learning it! I also do synchronized ice skating on the side, and our skating soundtrack this year was by AC/DC, so it’s been a fun year of 60’s/70’s hard rock!
Thanks for watching my video and best of luck to everybody!
