Ava Downey

Ava Downey is 11 years old and is a 5th grader at St. Helena School in Blue Bell, PA. She has been taking drum lessons for three and half years at Sam Ash music. She is an avid music lover, and really enjoys the music of Queen and The Beatles. She is a fearless performer, who has played on the public stage at Sam Ash in two recitals! At school she is a member of a percussion group called "Car Alarm" that performs percussion on plastic buckets, metal and plastic trash cans, and trash can lids. Ava is an honor student at school, and is also active in dance and chorus. She is also a competitive swimmer for USA Swimming at Wissahickon Community Aquatic Club in the winter, and Whitemarsh Valley Country Club in the Summer. Ava's two favorite drummers are, of course, Roger Taylor of Queen, and Ringo Starr. When she is not performing, Ava is an avid reader and self-proclaimed “Potter Head” and is on the 5th book in the Harry Potter Series. She also enjoys bike riding, playing with her dog Daisy, and making creations from materials from the recycle bin.
