Zeynep Gerelioglu


Hi everyone! My name is Zeynep but everyone calls me Zuzu. I am 10 years old and have been playing drums for 3 years. This is my second year in HLAG Contest. I think HLAG is a very important organization to show people that girls can play drums too. People get shocked when they first see me playing drums. Even in school, I am the only girl who is interested in drums but I believe I can change this. My music teachers support me for this. We invite younger students to my little shows at school and I make small talks in classrooms to inform younger students about drums and being a drummer. I like playing drums and being on stage. My drums teacher organizes public workshops in Denizli (small city I live in Turkey) and I realized that I like playing before the audience. That’s why I record my medley this year on a performance hall before a small group of audience. I hope you enjoy it!

    Great job, Zuzu. I’m proud of you for sending the message that girls can absolutely play the drums. You will be a tremendous inspiration in your city and your country.

    Zeynep very good job! You did it great. With the mix you showed you can play any kind of music!! Keep on practicing and always rehearse with a metronome. Congrats!
