Name: Natasha Scott
Location: Nanaimo, Canada
Natasha Hoskins has been playing the drums since the age of 14 when she noticed a lack of female drummers in her community. She immediately became deeply integrated in her school’s various jazz groups. After graduating high school she went on to further her studies of the drumset at Vancouver Island University and enrolled in the Jazz Studies program. Natasha also had the pleasure of teaching at a local drum shop for three years, specializing in working with young female drummers.
She is incredibly happy to be back playing the drums after having to take nearly 2 years off of using her right arm due to a wrist injury. After surgery and 4 months of hand therapy she came back to university to finish her degree this past September and is thankful to be able to be a part of this competition and to receive some feedback on her playing!
