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.
