Amanda Ladd

United States

Hi, I’m 14 years old. I’ve played the piano for four years and wanted to try something new. With the pandemic dragging on and not being able to travel or be with friends, I decided to take up the drums. My cousin shared her drum set with me and my aunt shared her drum teacher. Nine months in and I’m loving every minute of this new adventure. I have an inspirational instructor who teaches me about song transcription, recording, performing, and how to have a good time as a drummer. I’ve had a great time learning from Nick and sharing songs with my Aunt Kristen. I like the power of the drums, the drive to get it right and the excitement of performing.  I chose the song, “Beggin” by Maneskin because I thought it would be a challenge and fun.  Banging it out in North Carolina and hoping you enjoy this performance. 🙂

    Remarkable! I’m blown away. Amanda says she has only been playing the drums for 9 months. It’s hard to believe. I loved her performance. It was like watching and listening to a very forceful, beautiful ballet. I loved it!
