Aiwen Voth

Canada

Hello! My name is Aiwen and I am 10 years old. I started playing drums when I was 4 because I loved dancing to music and always liked hitting things with sticks.

I also play the traditional Chinese harp called guzheng. When I play the harp the music is always soft and peaceful, so when I play drums I like to play violent music. The bands I like to play most are Rise Against, Twenty One Pilots, System of a Down, and Disturbed. And my favourite drummers to watch are Kristina Rybalchenko, Matt Mcguire, El Estepario Siberiano, and Tarn Softwhip. I love how they all have such crazy energy and also very clean drumming technique.

I am trying to make an impact this year by starting to teach other people how to drum. Every time I look for a tutorial on how to play a new song it is always dudes making videos on how to play drums. So this year I started making drum tutorials on my YouTube channel and I have had so many people from around the world send me messages and thank me for helping them learn songs that they like. There are so many amazing female drummers out there, and I hope that there will be more and more female teachers and mentors for young drummers to look up to. It’s one thing to inspire people to play by being an awesome drummer, but when you teach someone how to play you have a deeper impact on that person because you helped them improve and they got better because of you. I am also helping my 5 year old brother on drums because every time I play a hard song he also wants to learn it.

Thank you to the Hit Like A Girl community for the opportunity and support and good luck to all the contestants!
