FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Samantha Lubin

Hi! My name is Samantha and I trained at LIPA (Paul McCartneys school in Liverpool). I graduated back in 2011 with a BA (Hons) Degree in music and upon graduating I was awarded the Zildjian prize. Since then, I have been gigging non stop with various artists and bands nationally and internationally. I am currently based in the UK in North London.

In 2019 I had an accident whilst shooting a music video with my band, BABYTEETH. I fainted mid shoot and smashed my head on a concrete wall and blacked out on the floor. I had a small bleed in my head which resulted in me having 6 months worth of physio as my reaction time to my right leg was 10 seconds and my left leg was 5 seconds. Over the course of the last 2 years, with the help of all my family and friends, I have been rebuilding my confidence and strength so that I can play the drums comfortably again. I have had to be very careful during my recovery as the doctors told me that having the extensive noise and vibrations going through my body was very dangerous.

During the pandemic I have been building up my online teaching and getting myself set up properly in my studio in North London. I met Kaz (Rodriguez) at the studio and asked him if he would mentor me. His guidance has been completely invaluable and has helped me get my playing back to where it was before I had my head injury. I now feel like 2021 is my time.

So here it is. My Hit Like a Girl entry. I hope you enjoy my performance. Turn it up, LOUD.

    WOW ….. what a talented girl . From the glance at her write up she has been so busy trying to keep her head above water as I’m sure she has had very few gigs . But has built an online business which I’m sure is not a very easy thing to do during hard times like these .

    • Samantha Lubin on March 26, 2021 at 2:17 am

      Thank you very much Janine! You are right, I have had a hard time recovering from my injury but I am much better now 🙂 Yes, I’ve not had many gigs in 2020 due to the current restrictions in the UK but I did have a few last summer when things were open! Hopefully things will be better here this year. Thank you for the kind words re my teaching business – it’s going well but always looking for more students who are passionate about learning the drums 🙂

    Sam is AMAZING! She is our son’s drumming teacher and she has had a massive impact on his and our entire family. Or son has Dyslexia and his self confidence before lockdown wasn’t the best, so with lockdown he needed a focus and outlet! Along came Sam and she changed all that! He can now play the drums to a high standard, his confidence has skyrocketed and he practices without us asking! Sam has given him the support and encouragement to try and not worry, without the judgment that is part of growing up! He is in Yr6 and is already planning to set up a ban at secondary school. This is all thanks to the amazing Sam! Her skills are on another level and to think she herself has had to overcome a challenge! VOTE FOR SAM!!!

    This is absolutely fantastic Sam! You are a passionate drummer and your talent is clearly shown here … its so energetic and powerful. Not to mention, I can see why as a drumming teacher you are so enthusiastic (and infectious!), as you give 100% in every lesson. If your students progress to be as good as you, then just WOW! Keep up the tremendous work! x

      Thanks so much Chitt! That’s really kind 🙂 x

    The whole package – feel, energy, finesse, tight to the pulse, sick song choice and consistency throughout. Stands out in this category by a mile. Top top top level player!
