Aiwen Voth

Hi, my name is Aiwen. I started playing drums when I was 4 and a half years old. Now I am 9 so that means I have played drums for half of my life. I also play the Chinese harp.

At the beginning, how I started playing drums was that all the songs I played on Chinese harp are so gentle and quiet and I wanted to play more violent music so I always hit on my dad’s drum kit and then I started learning drums. I submitted a video last year and have been motivated all year because of the Hit Like a Girl competition. This year I learned how to read drum notation and I learned this whole song by reading the notation and then adding some other small things on the drums. I also got better at holding my drumsticks when playing the ride and learned dynamics like ghost notes and rim shots.

My most favourite bands are Blink 182 and 21 Pilots and my favourite drummers to watch are Tarn Softwhip and Matt Mcquire and Ami Kim. All the bands I like have boy drummers so I want to be in a band so that other girls also want to play drums in bands and not just on YouTube. Thank you so much for the support and I really hope all the girls in the competition do great with their drumming!
