About Drummer of Tomorrow
During our entry phase, hundreds of video submissions vying to become the next Drummer of Tomorrow were uploaded to the Drummer of Tomorrow website. Popular voting by the Drummer of Tomorrow community selected our “Under 18” winner and also chose one of the 16 quarterfinalists. Our internal judging panel (featuring Chris Pennie, Derico Watson and Mark Beckett) chose the remaining 15 Quarterfinalists.
The quarterfinalists were brought to Nashville, TN to record a solo performance. These videos were posted for the quarterfinal showdown where the community selected the eight semifinalists. We’re now pushing the performance one step farther -- each of the semifinalists will perform at upcoming Big Beat events on November 6th in front of hundreds of their fellow drum peers!
Two drummers from each Big Beat location will advance to the USA finals in California.
