Isla Sanderfer

I started drumming when I was in second grade. My brothers were in a percussion group and I saw them playing on the drumset and wanted to try it. That's when I fell in love with playing the drums. Some of my favorite drummers are Sheila E, Dani Markham, Meg Samples, and Kelsey Lee. They are all very powerful women and they are amazing at drumming. I've actually met all of them! They have inspired me to keep on drumming and to keep working hard. I have three cats named Maggie, Bean, and Otis and they are the loves of my life! I also love to dye my hair many different colors. Thank you for taking the time to watch my video!

    Where do I begin. A PDP kit with a cool wrap. And a percussion ensemble playing the Jackson Five. And your solid drumming. That was outstanding!! That was a very entertaining video. Good luck!
