Elise Luna Burcham

My name is Elise Burcham. I have been drumming for 6 years and drumming is a major part of my life. As one of my main passions, I play drums in some form almost every day whether it be practicing through Jazz band at my high school, practice through one of my three bands outside of school or just practicing on my own to better myself as a drummer. The styles that interest me the most are Jazz, Rock, Funk, and Latin, but I always like exploring new things and blending styles. I started drumming when I was 10 years old and I had my first drum lesson on Valentine’s Day. I was inspired to drum because I had seen people drumming in my school's talent show and thought that the drums looked like a fun instrument to play. I was currently playing piano but was getting bored easily, so I decided to try out drums and it has become a life passion. I use drumming to express myself, to be creative and to socialize. I have met so many friends through my drumming and I don’t know what my life would be without it. I hope to keep drumming a passion throughout the rest of my life and I hope to improve every day.

    Very musical drumming. Great jazzy song. Love your feel and approach to the music. My only minor suggestion is you seem to have a reach for the snare cross stick patterns. Maybe play around with putting your kit pieces closer to you. Every once in a while I move stuff around to see if I can reach stuff easier to use less energy when playing. Your arms and shoulders and back will thank you when you get older. But overall you did a great job on a tricky challenging song!

  2. Good luck in the contest !! Great job Elise 👊🥁
