Ella Porter


Hi! I’m Ella. I am 8 and have been playing drums since I was about 4 and started lessons when I was 6. My favourite things to do are dancing, gymnastics, painting with my best friend and drumming of course! I wanted to enter Hit Like a Girl because I wanted to prove that I am a good drummer. I chose the song ‘I Love Rock ‘N Roll’ because I like the fast tempo and time signature changes and because I like the challenge! And it is very true that I do love rock and roll! I like upbeat music and some of my favourite artists are Pink, Queen and Blondie. I had lots of fun making this video, I hope you have lots of fun watching it!

    Ella, you have definitely proven that you are a good drummer! Those time signature changes can be difficult and you nailed it. Great job.
