The 2018 Drumming Contest For Women And Girls

Hit Like A Girl 2018 is the seventh annual global drumming contest for female percussionists. Its purpose is to spotlight female drummers/percussionists and encourage drumming and lifelong musicianship for girls and women, regardless of age or playing level. The 2018 theme, “Break Through”, is an acknowledgement of the progress already made in shattering barriers and stereotypes as well as a call to action aimed at empowering more women and girls to become players. Hit Like A Girl activities are made possible by the generous support of companies in the music products industry.

General Guidelines

Read the complete contest rules and policies for more details.

Pick Your Passion

Enter in one or more of the Drumset, Concert, Marching and World Percussion—as well as the new Technology—categories.

Only women and girls are eligible to enter. The contest is named “Hit Like A Girl,” after all.

Drummers and percussionists who make more than $50k/year playing music and have an endorsement contract are not eligible to enter.

All female drummers, percussionists and programmers are encouraged to participate regardless of their age or ability level. The under 18 and 18-and-over age divisions allow everyone to support each other and the community.

Solos, covers, or gigs are all fair game. Just make sure to showcase your skills!
