FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Karen Newell

Hi, I am 56 years old and have been drumming most of my life. By day, I teach graduate students in a medical school, BUT by night, I am a musician. I am known for my creative approach to music which includes making and playing instruments out of common household items such as car mufflers, exhaust pipes, paint buckets and trash cans. I am a compilation of Blue Man Group meets Stomp with a healthy foundation of Drum and Bugle Corp as well as some jazz/fusion/funk and rock mixed in for good measure. I also direct a percussion ensemble for women (The Les Prestines). I am thrilled to be able to share my passion for music with my drumming sisters from around the world here on Hit Like A Girl. For more info on my story, my musical background and my influences please visit my website: http://knewelldrums.com or check out my You Tube videos at superknewell or knewelldrums
