Hi – my name is Elyse and I am 12 years old.
I am competing in this competition because my fantastic drumming teacher, Tabitha, told me about it. I have been drumming for a bit over two years now, even doing lessons via zoom during lockdown.
I like to drum because it is fun and it helps me with other things, for example I use some beats to help me remember difficult words in Spanish.
I picked Vanishing Girl because I have loved it since I was really little, and it makes me think about my dad every time I hear it or play it.
I have always wanted to learn to play the drums, ever since I knew what drums were, because I like to hit things. Being able to compete in this comp is cool!
