Lauren Young

United States

Hello! My name is Lauren Young. I have been playing the drums for approximately 5 years now. Working each day over the years to improve playing drums has been super fulfilling and life changing. My love for music is deep, it has the power to heal, transform, transport, and so much more! Drumming is a life skill but it is also a lifestyle – I am forever grateful to be able to help people through the power of music!

Listening to great music each day with my parents has led me to be heavily influenced by such game changing drummers as Jen Ledger (Skillet), Dave Grohl (Nirvana), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper and Hollywood Vampires), and many many more. I am a drummer – it is what I do, it is what I desire, it is my my passion. Watching and learning from such amazing professionals inspires me to be the best version of me each and every day.

Last year, through Hit Like A Girl 2022, I was honored to receive the Joe Hibbs Memorial Award presented by The Sessions. The award is presented to continue Joe Hibbs values of modern drum set performance. Joe valued dedication, hard work, deep passion, and endless commitment. The prize awarded afforded me to get some of my preferred drumsticks and several more drum lessons – both of high value to me. The plaque provided is high quality and the people at both organizations have been super intentional and responsive in their communication. It was truly an honor to receive the award last year and I hope to earn the Joe Hibbs Memorial Award again this year.

The camaraderie and kindness among other drummers (amateur, professional, and world class) has been a great joy over the last several years. Serving each other through sharing knowledge and experiences is special. Having shared experiences providing clothes and toys to children during the holidays as well as supplying food to the hungry alongside of other musicians continues to change my life. I look forward to continuing to develop and progressing in music and life for many years to come.

  25. Gary Lanzendorf on April 20, 2023 at 7:43 am

    Hi. I’m an amateur drummer for 40 years now and watching this young lady has forced me into making more time for myself to throw sticks. Because of her young age and extreme talent she is a huge inspiration for young and old, man or woman. If only I could be as good at drumming as she is 😛.
