FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Malina Handford

My name is Malina and I've been drumming for about two and a half years. I started drumming in the Girls Rock camp and ever since then I've felt at home behind the kit! I've been in School of Rock for two years where I've met a lot of talented people and friends.

I entered this contest last year and I feel like I've improved a lot since then! I'm getting better at hitting harder and I'm more comfortable playing in front of others. I still have a lot more to learn. I'm working on things I feel like I struggle with like being confident and stage presence. I just started highland drumming classes to improve my technique and I feel like it's a good experience.

My top two drumming influences are Sheila E. and Karen Carpenter. I love watching them play and when I do, I think "That's what I want to do someday". Various drum teachers and drummers I know inspire me to get better.
