Elise Burcham

United States

Teacher/School: UC San Diego

I have been playing drums for 10 years and it is my absolute favorite thing to do. Ever since I was 10 years old I have loved drumming and would not be who I am today without it. In my day-to-day life, I drum in my band, The Diz, in my university’s jazz ensemble, and play drums and sometimes band lead for the Muir Musical Theater production company.

I am hoping to make a career out of drumming and drum professionally or potentially go to graduate school for drum performance after undergrad. I hope by entering this contest I will further my dream of drumming for a living!

This track was composed by me and my band (The Diz) by taking three existing songs: Fur Elise by Beethoven, Hayloft by Mother Mother, and Hysteria by Muse and combing them all in a creative way. We love to play this song live at our shows and I wanted to showcase the drums because I always have so much fun playing this part.

I am so grateful to be able to play this song with my band and to be able to be a part of this contest! I hope you enjoy!
