Ilana is in her teens and has been playing for 7 years. We saw her slay the drums this year at Guitar Center’s Drum Off 2012 in NYC and had to talk to her.
Tom Tom Magazine: How long have you been playing the drums?
Illana: I have been playing guitar since I was four and I was at one of my guitar lessons and thought about how cool it’d be to play drums as well. So I did! One time I was playing a drum cover and recording it as well and my stick hit the cymbal and flew out of my hands and flew back at me and hit me in the face. It was the strangest thing ever and I was so confused how it happened. The video is hilarious!
