Dates, Sponsors and Judges Announced For Women’s Drumming Contest

Developed to support, promote and inspire the growth of female drummers, the Hit Like A Girl drumming contest for women and girls attracted nearly 400 contestants and more than 400,000 online votes from around the world in 2012. This overwhelming response has allowed organizers to plan for an even bigger event in 2013.

Led by DRUM! Magazine, participating sponsors Drum Workshop, TRX, Evans, Vater, and SKB, along with media sponsors Drum Channel, Alfred Music, Tom Tom Magazine, and the Enter Music Network, Hit Like A Girl 2013 will begin accepting online video entries at www.hitlikeagirl2013.com on Friday, February 1, 2013. Entries will close on Sunday, March 31, 2013 at which point finalists will be selected and judged by a panel of world-renowned drummers including Meytal Cohen (independent), Hannah Ford (Prince, Bellevue Suite) and Dawn Richardson (Four Non-Blondes, Tracy Chapman).

In addition to offering drum and accessory prizes valued at thousands of dollars, Hit Like A Girl 2013 has been expanded with the participation of corporate sponsor School Of Rock and divided into under and over 18 age divisions to create more interest and a more even playing field. Submitted videos can be drum covers, solos or performances with a band or pre-recorded tracks and will judged on factors such as technique, musicality and overall effect.

Additional details will be announced as they become available. To learn more and view the top women’s drumming videos from last year, visit www.hitlikeagirl2013.com.
