I was born in May 1999. Now it’s up to you to do the maths 🙂
Most likely not
In general, yes, but please note that I get dozens of requests every day, so it's impossible to check them all out and to comment on every suggestion. Please don't be offended it I don't reply to your request. We bundle the most requested songs and include them on my to-do-list. It's a long list...
At the age of 10
In the very West of Germany, right in the middle of nowhere between the cities 'Krefeld' (Germany) and 'Venlo' (Netherlands)
It depends really! Why not use my contact from for any serious request?
It depends again. I get so many requests and I am very busy with the collaborations I agreed to earlier. So what do you have to offer? Are you a great musicians or singer or songwriter? Do you have a great idea for a spectacular piece of art?
Unfortunately, I had to stop my recording service because I could not handle all those requests anymore. However, if you want to suggest an interesting project, please send me a mail via my web form. Please note that I can only commit to projects I really love!
Yes, check out my Original Chi Might Project
Since the summer of 2015 I endorse Kirchhoff drums. 'Kirchhoff Schlagwerk' is a small manufacturer of High Class Acrylic drums. They are most famous for their Acrylic Shells. I used 2 Acrylic sets between 2015 and 2018 and I still use them Live. Since September 2018 I use wooden shells in the studio. The company is located close to my home village so it was kind of obvious for me to endorse them. Check out their fancy design on https://www.facebook.com/KirchhoffSchlagwerk2006/?fref=ts For my earlier videos I used a Vintage 80s Pearl Masters Custom kit.
I'm an Evans endorser. Ususally, I use transparent EC2 drum heads for my toms and a coated UV1 drum head for my snare. I use an Evans EQ4 for my kick drum.
Since 2018, I use Beyerdynamic microphones. They are light but heavy-duty, easy to attach and they sound ace.
I'm a Meinl endorser and I use Meinl Pure Alloy cymbals. They have a very bright sound which is good for my Classic Rock kinda style. I do not like nowadays modern 'super dry' cymbals
True answer, there is non, really. I love many bands and drummers of the 70s and 80s and also some 90s or more current Prog Rock bands, not to forget some 60s All-time-favorites, like The Beatles, The Who, Kinks, Rolling Stones and many more. However, there are some drummers who stand out for me, e.g. the great Jeff Porcaro or Simon Phillipps, but to cut a long story short: It's dozens of bands and musicians I really like a lot and I can't name only a few who I like better than all the rest
Because sometimes it's summer and sometimes not.

ich bin begeistert, dass du dich im klassischen Rock der 70er jahre so gut auskennt… ich bin 40 jahre älter als du, und alles, was du perfekt spielt liegt bei mir als original vinyl platten zu Hause… woher kommt diese leidenschaft, kommt das aus deiner Familie?
Hallo Nicolas, vielen Dank! Mein Vater ist Studio- und Livemusiker und ich bin mit Musik aufgewachsen. Damit könnte es zusammenhängen 🙂 Beste Grüße retour!
Hey sins, have you done Let there be Rock by ACDC?
Not yet 🙂
Hello Sina. I want to be friend with you. Just friends. Do you want to be friend with me???
Hi Dina I’m thinking about starting s band in the future and I’m wondering if you would be my drummer?/
Hi Sina, I think Dreams by the Cranberries would be a great fit for you!
Do you have a 2022 calendar? My 2021 one is running out of months. This November it’s Van Halen.
Hallo Sina also mein Respekt hast du auf jeden Fall auch wenn ich von Musik nicht so die Ahnung habe aber was du dort machst ist einfach spitze. Und ich hätte nicht mal gedacht das du aus Deutschland kommst. Ich wünsche dir für deine Zukunft ganz viel Erfolg .
Du hast es Drauf hör nur nicht auf ich mag noch viele Drums von dir hören und sehen
Liebe Grüße aus Hessen
Vielen Dank und die allerbesten Grüße retour. In Hessen bin ich geboren – Marburg 🙂
Die Hesse komme! 😉
Gruß aus Arnheim (Holland, stimmt). Keine Ahnung warum ich deiner Site/Musik anschaue/höre (das passiert so manchmal mit Gedankenlos surfen) aber ich liebe es. Ich liebe eine ganze Menge Musik aber es tut mir gut zu hören das du mit dreizig Jahre weniger auf der Uhr als ich soviel Liebe hast für ‘alter’ Rock und Soul. ProTools/autocue/autotune/auto-whatever Musiker gibt es schon genug. Weil ich dieses tippe bedenke ich mir das du und Laura Cox (nah Paris) euch viellicht mahl begegnen sollen: Rock ‘n Roll!
Anyway, Danke für die Musik (du auch, Mike mit zwei Hinternamen 😉 ) und alles Gutes, Harrie.
Hey Sina. You’re amazing. Have you done any Bowie songs? Heroes is my fav and I think you would make it better than the original!
Heroes is an anthem + . Maybe the folks like me and Cody, hope you consider doing what you do best. Love Eddie.
Sina is there a chi mightIII?
Sina you inspire me I’m am 10 years old!,!
Can I come meet you your like the best person I’ve ever watched!,!⛄️❄️
Check out Neil Pratt and Buddy Rich and Shenia Twains drummer Elijah Wood. Keep on Tappin’ and Slappin’.
How can I buy sina-drums used drum skins and cymbals
Ich bin durch Zufall auf deine Youtube Videos gestoßen und es ist einfach Großartig dich da zu sehen. Mal eine Frage weil ich in einem Video was gesehen habe wo du dich selber Vorstellst hab ich richtig gesehen? Kommst du aus Deutschland ?
Vielen Dank, Mathias, ja, das ist richtig, aus der Nähe von Krefeld 🙂
Hello Sina Goodafternoon My Name Is Fritz Couwels I Find Your Drum Music Very Very Beautiful And You Are So Very Very Beautiful Girl Can You Making A Very Long Drum Solo Video For Me Please And Uploading On Your YouTube Channel Please
What’s your real name
Plainly Sina is her real first name, and it’s easy enough to find the surname if you look around on her website. Happy reading 🙂
Hello Goodmorning Sina My Name Is Fritz Couwels How Are Ya With You Today And How Are Ya With Your Drum Music I Find Your Drum Music Very Very Beautiful And You Are Too A Very Very Beautiful Drumgirl Can You A Very Very Long Drum Solo Video Making For Me Fritz Couwels Please
Funny Outloud laff. Thank You 4 that.
What advice would you give to a 13 year old girl looking to start out in the music industry and wanting to use You Tube as a medium?
Thanks in advance.
can you do kick it out by heart please and you are beautiful
Hello Sina my 3 years old daughter has already started playing drums. She loves you and he asks me to turn on YouTube channel every day! She wish she could be as good player as you are, as tall as you and has got as long hair as you. And she wanted you to know that! She’s yoir best fan! All the best for you!
Are you left handed?
How many drum covers have u done and have u made your own songs?
I think I did about 60? I recorded an original album, you can listen here: https://girls-got-groove.com/music/chi-might/
All songs are available on YouTube 🙂
“Of course you can pronounce Chi like the English word She and it becomes a personal pronoun. The word Might seems to be pretty obvious. But not quite. It might refer to the noun might, suggesting power, forth and strength but it might be an auxiliary verb: she might or she might not – you can never tell as she’s a girl!”
Your explanation for the title of “Chi Might” on your Free Audio page was excellent, demonstrating a high level of academic intelligence, knowledge, and skill outside your high level of music and drums intelligence, knowledge, and skill!
However, the quote above, from your explanation, (for this 76 year old American MALE), was, although just slightly sexist, very clever, and entertaining (caused me to chuckle), especially for those of us who have lived through that strong sexism era of history!
But, more importantly, to me, it demonstrated that you, even at 16 & 17 years of age, had a good head on your shoulders that was modest and prevented you from “thinking too highly of yourself” — even though we, your FANS, know “how GREAT thou art” (pun intended)!
‘Course i admit that i have considered the possibility that “dear old daddy” might have been instrumental (another pun?) in causing that quote — [got to help protect the public image of our darling daughter(s) during their emergence] as they stake their claim on “The world — Their oyster”!
Semper Fi !
♥ ♥ ♥
Former U.S. Marine perhaps?
There are no “former” Marines – just prior service …
Any plans do to Steely Dan covers ?
I love the Dire Straits and Jeff Porcaro songs.
Never thought I’d ever hear a decent re-make of “In A Gada Di Vida”.
Your version is quite good. Saw Iron Butterlfly live in 1970 ! (I was quite young)
Would love to see you live someday.
Do you have any signed photos I collect autographs and would love to have yours I believe that you will be a big star one day.
want to try something , that to me , seems like it would be a bit more challenging ? do a drum cover to Papa Roachs’ ” getting away with murder ” give a listen to it , and see what you think….you rock !
Thanks for your request. I just had a listen. Honestly, that’s not quite my music and the drums are not really challenging, so I’m afraid that’s not for me… Sorry, hope you don’t blame me!!!
no , no blame at all. at least you gave it a listen…
Sina your drumming is so good I cannot find words that do you justice. I will donate to your PayPal account which I have done already once. This time last week I had not heard of you. Now I listen to your YouTube channel. Could you record a DVD as I love listening to your music but I also like watching you play. Best wishes, Andy.
Thank you for getting back to me @ Youtube regarding the drum kit you are using. Unfortunately Kirschoff drums are a hard find here in the US. I’ve been to several sites in search of these drums. But it seems they are only available in Europe. Oh well! It’s not the end of the world..lol! My personal preference is for Ludwig drums which I have now. But that said, your drum covers are excellent. You cover a lot of vintage rock songs. It’s great to see someone so young playing drum covers to a lot of great vintage rock music. Keep up the great work on the drums, Sina!
Ludwig is an excellent brand. Beeing a Beatles fan I would certainly go for Ludwig if I had to choose a traditional brand. However, if you are interested in thos Kirchhoff drums I am sure the guys would find a way to ship a kit over to the US 🙂
Hi Sina, and thank you for the offer of possibly getting a Kirschoff drum kit over to me. Unfortunately the cost of shipping the kit to the US is a bit too costly. Like I said before, “It’s not the end of the world”…lol. It’s definitely a great kit with a lot of punch to it. I only wish it were available here in my country.
But I did manage to get a new Gretsch Catalina Maple 7 piece in walnut glaze here in the US. I just need to fit the kit out with some new hardware which I’m in the process of doing. The idea to go with Gretsch drums came from one of your videos where your father is playing a Gretsch electric guitar to the song, “Wipe Out”. The name Gretsch was stuck in my mind for a time, and I decided to check out their drum kits, and after looking and listening to several kits. The Catalina Maple kit had me! So, if I hadn’t been watching the “Wipe Out” video of yours. I never would have thought of looking into getting a Gretsch drum kit. Being a Ludwig fan for years, hence (Ringo Starr). It was in a sense a hard choice to switch over to Gretsch. But the price, and the sound was too good to pass up! That said, my old Ludwig’s that I mentioned before are being passed down to my 12 year old daughter (Alissa), who wants to take up drumming. “Like father, like daughter” lol. Well I must go now. Keep up the great drumming, Sina! ……………… P.S. I know you’re asked by much us who watch your videos to do drum covers of our favorite songs. But if in the future you could possibly do this song , “Hoedown” by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. That would be awesome! If not, I understand as a drummer myself that we can’t cover them all. Once again, keep up the great drumming, Sina!
Thanks a lot Bobby, please say hello to Alissa and best of luck for her drumming! That’s a good age to start drumming and starting on a Ludwig doesn’t sound like a bad idea 🙂 Enjoy your new drum kit, Gretsch is a fine brand indeed!
marry me <3
Have you checked my FAQs…? 😉 https://girls-got-groove.com/faq/
Hello Sina, there’s a song called Silent Lucidity by Queensryche and the drums are very good. It would be great to hear it played by you or even the song played without lyrics and you playing the drums. Please keep playing as I’m a huge fan. Stay beautiful and please stay safe.
I’m just kidding, you play a lot! bye Bye
Have you ever played portions of Led Zeppelin/ John Bonham’s Moby Dick? I read that Page wrote that so he would have something to play during their live shows.
This song is requested so often that I have to do it sooner or later 🙂
A shorter one that I bet would be fun to play would be Bonzo’s Montreux.
Ok…it’s now later… Moby Dick Please 🙂
Rosanna by Toto would be great, that shuffle…you are the best, keep rockin’
That’s actually one of the first songs I ever learned and one of my first drum covers. Unfortunately, it was blocked world wide and I had to take it down.
I think the ban was lifted, Andrea’s video was removed as well, now it’s back, you might want to try uploading it again, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBz7wao5h7k
Thanks Alex, but it’s still there. This is an old video of 2009. He got away with it then 🙂 All current covers are done to cheap Midi Playalong tracks. I don’t wanna do that… Thanks for the link!
Love u in the u.s. So much drive and talent. would love to see deep purples Burn or any ginger Baker. Keep following your dream.
Thanks a lot, those are great tracks, I might do some more Purple next year 🙂
Hi sins, my two favs by you so far are acdc whole lotta Rosie and sultains of swain! Girl you didn’t miss a beat and you did add more performance! Keep it rocking girl! You are so kick ass awesome!
Damn did David Coverdale tweet about u? Congrats
Thanks! I was amazed though…
It is a delight to see such talent, joy and exuberance on the drums. I became an instant fan watching your “Sultans Of Swing” performance. I look forward to seeing your style evolve. It makes me want to play again.
I have a technical question. Most drummers I know are very particular about their foot gear. Some will use one shoe style exclusively. I know one who always plays barefoot. My preference is playing in socks because it helps me time my hats better. I was a little ahead of the beat in shoes. I noticed you play both with and without shoes. Is there an advantage to each for you, or is it more for comfort? I was curious because the footwork is the weakest part of playing for me. You seem to have excellent form both ways.
Thank you so much for sharing your talent.
Love your playing . Wonderful to see someone your age loving the music i love
Would love to see you do highway star and some of Ginger Baker’s stuff
Mike ; Bristol : England
Hey Sina….This is my first visit to your homepage..Its great btw……I’ve been a a follower and then a fan of yours since, the very beginning…. You do a great job..And you are a excellent multi talented musician, and a good and kind person also.. I along with many others love both, your originals as well as covers….I’m am convinced that you are going to do very well and go far with this career…Being from a musical family myself, here in the US…(I wasn’t blessed with talent btw, but I try lol)..I understand how getting that “big break” could get frustrating at times…But I’m sure, this is gonna lead to great things for you……Now to my question…..What is you “Hopes and Dreams” for your future??…Musically as well as Just what you hope for in your everyday life??…………Again I’m sure you are gonna do great at all of your dreams…Thank you so much for all you do and for putting smiles and lifting spirits for so many people..across the world..Kyle..(aka-youtube=shadetree chevy..facebook=Duane)….:)
Hi Kyle, that’s a nice comment really, thanks a lot! I’m always glad if a lady joins the discussion! my Hopes and Dreams? Not sure to be honest. I’m a fan of numbers and science (like my mum) and I just started to study Computer Science but I also love music, so I’m kind of torn between both. The future will tell 🙂 Thanks again!
I like your playing but i can’t stand the toms sound. I hate pinstripes in general, i think they completely kill the sound of your drums. That’s your sound and i can’t critisice you for choosing pinstripes, but if you’d like to try to get some more open, natural sound, i’d recommend coated or clear ambassadors.
PS. Your’re one year younger than me and you’re still so much better at drums. Your timing is great.
Hi Bartek, when I first had my new Kirchhoff kit, there were coated Evans skins for the toms which I replaced after a couple of months. Not sure if I liked those ones better. Do you have a link to any cover of you, so I can hear what your toms sound like? Or can you paste a link of any video with a tom sound you consider great? Would be interesting to hear! Thanks for your message!
Hi 🙂 Some of my favourite tom sounds are these:
They are all different but I wanted to show you that i like lots of different styles and sounds, but i surely consider these great. If you’d like me to, i could record me playing my drums in “perfect tuning” and I could upload it. Thanks for the quick response. Cheers!!!
*and i surely consider these great.
I couldn’t listen to the 3rd example, it’s blocked in Germany. However, the first 2 examples are pretty much ‘Jazz’, especially the first one is very Acoustic. For the kind of songs I covered lately that sound is not right. I’m pretty happy with the sound I got for those kind of covers. I’m aware it’s a matter of taste and I like my sound. The 4th one by Led Zeppelin is great of course but the drum sound on a modern production wouldn’t be like that anymore. Blame it on the taste of the younger generation and what they are used to but I’m not sure if a band with a sound like Led Zeppelin would be successful today (if they came up as a new band). Something wrong with the general modern taste. It is going to change one day… If you want to record your own set and upload, why not?
Quieres se mi novia
mit großer (!!!!) Freude habe ich – selbst Keyboarder – einige deiner tollen Drum-Covers gehört, zuerst “Smoke On The Water”. Wie ein anderer auf YouTube schrieb: Immer mit einem Grinsen im Gesicht.
Anstatt zu arbeiten, gucke ich seit über einer Stunde deine Videos, habe inzwischen deine CD bestellt…. Großartige Musik!!!
Zu einem Kommentar animierte mich jetzt aber deine FAQ-Seite – ich musste sooooo laut lachen über deine Liste, als ich die ersten Punkte las…..
Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin viel Erfolg und alle Gute!!! Follow your dreams!
🙂 Vielen Dank noch mal, Thomas 🙂
Hallo Sina Ich bin auch etwa 40 Jahre älter als du und bin sprachlos begeistert über Dein Können ,Ich spiele auch seit ca 40 Jahren Schlagzeug, komme aber an deine leistung leider bei weitem nicht ran -:( kann mich von Deinen Aktionen gar nicht mehr lösen -:) Meine Kinder sind auch mit dieser Musik groß geworden und hören kein HIp Hop ect. sondern meine geliebten Klassiker , meine Tochter ist ein Jahr jünger als Du hört sehr gerne Pink Floyd hat alle CD von denen und steht mit diesem Musikgeschmack natürlich alleine in Ihrer Klicke // meine Söhne spielen auch Schlagzeug und bass in derselben Richtung ///Ich wünsche Dir alles gute Mach einfach weiter so und sei Du selbst Viele Grüße M i c h a e l
Hallo Michael, vielen Dank für den netten Kommentar 🙂 Mit Pink Floyd steht man in meiner Altersgruppe tatsächlich ziemlich einsam da. Seeeehhhhr schade aber da kann man wohl nichts machen…
Ich wollte Dir nur mal sagen dass ich dich sehr bewundert ich habe vor zwei Tagen deine Seite bei YouTube entdeckt da ich selber ein bisschen Ahnung vom Schlagzeug spielen habe aber meilenweit entfernt bin von dem was du tust habe ich großen Respekt vor deiner Kunst mach weiter so endlich mal ja mal ein cooles aus Deutschland und nicht nur immer coole Amerikaner
I stumbled across your videos on UTube. I’m very impressed with your skill level. You’ve inspired this 62 year old “hippie” to kick the dust off my kit and start playing again. Please keep inspiring young musicians (old ones too) as music brings us all together in a productive and positive way. Thanks.
Oh, I love to hear that 🙂 Thanks a lot, Ralph, for your nice message!
I say the same that said Ralph Houser… I’m 52 and I play drums since I was 8… And I’m learning from you at this age!! Many thanks Sina for knowing you and all that you post with this “powerful” groove, girl!!!
Thanks a lot!!
I allmost can’t believe that such a drum-star like you (in my opinion) lives near my home place . My home is between Roermond and Reuver.
I follow your YouTube Chanel for some time, and I became a big,big fan of you. Your music choices are right up to mine and your drumming…wow ..just fenominal!!
I’m a recreative drummer, it makes me happy But wen I look at your video’s on YouTube, it even makes more happyer. Really love your work.
My drumkit is an electronic kit from Roland, because otherwise my neighbours would keep on complaining.
Keep up the good work and live your dreams
With kind (drumming) regards, Buddy.
Hi Buddy, thanks a lot, nice! In fact, my neigbors DO keep complaining. I planned to record ‘Kickstart My Heart’ by Mötley Crüe this Friday, but before I even started the neighbor rang the bell and mentioned he would prefer if I stopped drumming… Next week my dad will be off so I’m not sure if there will be another cover next Friday…. we will see …
Thanks again 🙂
Haha lol …i know exactly what you mean.
Perhaps an idea to get our neighbours in to drumming also hahaha.
Just keep on groovin girl , it’s a fact that you got it
Many greetings from a relative close village, Buddy.
I love your videos of covers and your original music. You’ve got nice skills and techniques and a great sound. I also love the sounds of your cymbals, particularly your ride. I know you use Sabians and Meinl, but can you tell me which cymbals you have. I know that your ride is a Sabian XS20, but is it a 20 or a 21 inch? The XS20 line is discontinued, but there is still some in store and your ride is the sound I’m loking for.
Thanks and looking foward to seeing other videos of you.
Can you add ‘I’ve been losing you’ by Aha to your covers. ? I would love to see you do this one.
Hallo Sina! Great job on the drums. Keep working hard at it. I was just looking at your FAQ’s and saw you were from Germany. The scorpions were my favorite band in my teen years, how about picking a song to cover from them that you like? All the best to you, Rob.
I was wondering if you could cover Rock and Roll from Led Zeppelin. That is a bad ass drummers song
That’s one of the most requested songs. The problem is that I did not find a drumless track yet. I might do it from scratch once I find the right singer…
Give Robert Plant a call i’l think he manage!
Hia Sina,just come across your website here after seeing the link on Sultans Of Swing,you have now done 2 of my all time fav songs in Sultans and Woman From Tokyo,cant pick the 1 I like the most between them,got a few questions for you,which is your favourite cover that you have done,who are your favourite band and who has inspired you the most,is it another drummer or as I suspect is it your father.Also love your cover of Don’t Stop Me Now,is great to see you sing along to this song,i suspect this may be 1 of your favourite songs,you have played many songs from my favourite bands but my 2 favourite drummers are Mark Brzezicki of Big Country, ( my all time favourite band ever having saw them live 39 times ) , and Mel Gaynor of Simple Minds,both bands from my Country of Scotland,look up this song if you have the time of Big Country-In A big Country from Glasgow Barrowlands 29/12/93,i was at this gig,Mark in my opinion is the greatest drummer the world has ever seen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sas-7ac_t4k and I was at this gig,greatest night of my life,would be amazing if you liked this and covered this song,look forward to more of your work 🙂
Hi Freddy, thanks a lot for taking the time and writing a lovely comment! I might do some Simple Minds next year if I have a chance, I am soooo busy! I don’t really have a favorite band or favorite drummer, that keeps changing all the time. I enjoy a lot of 70s and 80s music, plus some 90s Prog Rock 🙂 and some 60s Beatles/Kinks/Who/Stones…
Hi Sina,thank’s for taking the time to reply,my musical taste is also mostly 70’s/80’s,still an 80’s kid at heart and always will be,another of my all time fav songs which I think would be excellent for you to cover,and you would nail it perfectly,is New Sensation by INXS,in the future wherever your life leads you and whatever you do as you grow older,i hope you will always stick with your music as I think you have a great future there,from a very damp and cold Scotland have a great weekend 🙂
And Mark Brzeziki played with The Cult on the Love album. Listen to “Electric” witch is similar to ACDC kind of music, also “Sonic Temple” and “Ceremony”. And Procol Harum witch are nice bands to consider covering . Got the Big Country blue cover album “The crossing” on vinyl and Simple Minds “New Gold Dream” would be great for covering nice material on there pretty ’80’s stuff. Anyways Sina you have a good choice of covering great classic rock songs and a good filming production “The drone in Bon Jovi’s livin’ on a prayer”.
Hi there Sina. Don’t ask me how or why, but I stumbled across your videos on youtube, and my jaw dropped on the ground when I heard you playing. Not only the covers (which are almost all my kind of music) are magnificently done but also your album Chi Might is done great. I can only agree with Ralph Houser (see his comment above, november 3) “Please keep inspiring young musicians (old ones too) as music brings us all together in a productive and positive way.” You really do inspire musicians. And not only musicians. You also inspire me. It has always been a wish of me to play drums, and you have got me decided to actually buy a drumkit to learn to play. I know you’re very busy, and maybe this is not your typical choice of music, but maybe some day, when you have time and you are in the mood, you feel like making a cover of ‘Toss the feathers’, an Irish song which is played without drums by The Corrs during an MTV’s unplugged session. (They played it lots of times during their concerts with drums) Until then I wish you great playing, and keep inspiring people, but above all; keep inspiring yourself.
That’s very nice, Marco, thanks a lot! I like the Corrs, I heard them a lot. I’m also familiar with Irish Folk. My dad produced an English Folk album with a great English Folk musician, Mat Williams. The style of the arrangements is very Irish though. I even played drums for one of the tracks. You can have a listen if you are interested:
I know this album. 🙂 Great songs. I hope your dad is wise enough to let you take part in more projects like these. 😛
Anyway, thanks for your inspirational videos. I’m sure the world will see and hear a lot more from you.
Hi Sina , ich bin begeistert von dir !
Ich spiele Gitarre seit ich 5 Jahre alt bin .
Es ist echt cool das du es in 7 Jahren so weit geschafft hast.
Ich spieltest du schon einmal vor einer größeren Menge an Menschen ?
Währe cool wenn du mir antwortest .
Bleib am Ball, Coole Nummer . ;P
ich habe keine ‘richtige’ Band, habe bisher nur mit dre Schul BigBand und auch mit Playalongs vor Publikum gespielt. Noch nie mehr als 500- 600. Mal sehen, was noch passiert 🙂
Have you heard of Galactic Cowboys “Space in Your Face” album? I think you’d love it, in particular the two ‘hidden’ tracks – probably the best on the album..
I imagine Kings X meets The Beatles meets Dream Theater meets Metallica? I think you could do a wonderful cover of them!
Just got you “Chi-Might” on CD today… can’t stop listening, a real breath of fresh air
thank you x
Thank you very much 🙂 Will try to check out the Galactic Cowboys album if I have a chance. Currently I need to learn so many different songs that it’s very difficult to listen to any other stuff on top of it 🙂
You have amazing skill. Keep it up and we’ll see you in America touring at some point whether its with an established band or new. Your future is bright!
“Come in here dear girl, have a cigar, your gonna go far, your gonna fly high, your never gonna die, your gonna make it if you try, they’re gonna love you.” – Pink Floyd
my wife and me just listened to the songs from Chi Might project and we love it. One comment was “Music like in the good old times”.
One question: is there any chance to see you playing live somewhere with your collaborators?
Thanks, I love to hear that! Regarding common concerts with my collaborators, that’s pretty unlikely due to the different continents we live in, but you never know what the future brings!
Here is the Ultimate Drum Cover, Achilles Last Stand by Led Zeppelin.
Hola sina me gusta mucho todo lo que haces me encanta el cover de waith snake here go again me dejo loco desde que vi ese video no dejo de seguirte
No se como seras en persona pero me enamora tu performanse

Hello Sina I really like everything you do I love the cover of waith snake here go again I leave crazy since I saw that video I do not stop following you
I do not know how you will be in person but I love your performance
I would like to know if you are a cover of QUEEN OF THE STONE AGE – wi go the flow – I know it is not a challenge but it is a good music
Greeting sina kisses for you from Iguazú Argentina
Just want to say that your covers keep blowin me away. I wish i had your talent. Just amazing
I would like to wish you happy christmas hollidays and a super drum-filled happy 2017
your a great drummer sina…maybe try innagodadavida
I am moved to tears by your talent. i think your version of “Jump” by Van Halen was the best, followed by “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Queen).
Can you do Phil Collins’s “I Don’t Care Anymore”?
Are you familiar with the American drummer Buddy Rich? He was known for his fast solos.
Okay literally I am really considering putting you in my band, I am a singer, songwriter, and an overall musician, drums is one of my favorites, I work with a lot of synth sounds and I love guitar riffs and making some up of my own and I’ve already made many things to work with, I could send them to you if you would want to hear them, I have written many songs I would like you to try to drum to cause like omg I just found out about your YouTube and I was like omg you’re amazing, so please consider being apart of my band in the future as it will be very wide and well known, I am very pleased to have met you, so please write me back and we will see how it goes from there 🙂
Hi Sina. My 12 year old daughter plays drums as well, and really enjoys it. You are a great inspiration . I see you are a fan of Jeff Porcaro. He is my favourite drummer, and I love playing Toto songs on drums (although I’m nowhere near as good as you are ). Would really love to see how you play Hold The Line. I think Jeff would have been proud of anything you did of his.
I just found your Youtube channel and you friggen ROCK! I wonder though- think you could cover Bob Seger’s Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man?
I assume that you know the rockband THE WHO and the fantastic drummer, Keith Moon. I wonder if you could make a drumcover with one of the most difficult drumparts with the WHO, where Keith Moon really go mad on drums?
Kind Regards, Klaus Hansen, Dänemark 🙂
You are a very talented og giftet drummer. The future with som great drumming lays is right before you 🙂
Thanks a lot. For any drum cover I need to rely on drumless tracks. They are hard to find but if I find one for The Who I’ll have a go 🙂
Have you ever considered covering Satyricons drummer Frost https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJLwAwYhoKY? Or maybe do the drum solo from Ina-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly?
My to-do-list is incredibly long, but the main issue for any cover is that I need to find a drumless track first, that’s very unlikely for any request…
Durchaus beeindruckend. Respekt. Mir scheint, ich habe bisher tatsächlich etwas verpasst, und es gibt offensichtlich wirklich noch Hoffnung für die Musikszene in Deutschland, abseits von Castingshows und anderen kläglichen Formaten. Danke dafür! Ob ein Schlagzeuger wirklich gut ist, hängt nicht von seinen technischen Fähigkeiten in einem bestimmten Alter ab, sondern, ob er in der Lage ist, verschiedene Genres zu beherrschen, und dies buchstäblich mit Leib und Seele. Das ist etwas, was nicht messbar, aber trotzdem zu hören ist. Ich kenne z.B. niemanden, der in der Lage ist, “Ticks and Leaches” von Tool und gleichzeitig “Aja” von Steely Dan zu beherrschen. Um ehrlich zu sein, nicht mal einen Song von beiden. Steve Gadd und Danny Carey sind allerdings auch große Fußstapfen, in die man sinnbildlich zu treten versucht. Aber wenn ich einen ultimativen Wunsch für einen Song äußern könnte, den du einmal spielen könntest, dann wären es in Wirklichkeit derer zwei: “Lowdown” von Boz Scaggs, oder “Human Touch” von Bruce Springsteen, jeweils mit dem Meister himself an den Drums. Ich weiß nicht, was Jeff bei “Lowdown” mit diesem Hi-Hat gemacht hat, aber wenn es eine Definition von “Smooth” gibt – dann gebührt sie ihm, hier, für immer. Und ich liebe den Cross Stick bei Human Touch, und wenn der Song nach dem ersten Refrain richtig losgeht – just brilliant. Dir wünsche ich weiterhin vor allem Eines: Genauso viel Freude und Glück, wie du offensichtlich zur Zeit beim Spielen empfindest, und dies unabhängig von Klickzahlen oder positiver bzw. negativer Kritik. Denn am Ende ist es das, was zählt. Ich glaube, du kriegst das hin 🙂
Vielen Dank, Nils, ich werde mal reinhören, wenn ich eine Minute habe 🙂 Für meine Drumcover bin ich auf drumless tracks angewiesen und die sind nicht so einfach zu fiden, aber ich werde die Augen offenhalten!
here’s an idea , but not a new one. how about some t-shirts with your logo on them ? a big logo on the back , smaller one on the front , just an idea , maybe make some extra money for you ! count me in for an XXL !
Thanks a lot, we’ll go for that in a couple of months 🙂
Ha ! I just emailed your “office” with the same request. I will proudly wear one and do my tiny part in getting you some USA exposure ! You are a gift to us all. Aim high and you will achieve everything you dream of.
Thanks a lot, Scott!
Sina – Sultan of Drums
I saw your YouTube video’s today for the first time. Wow… spectacular… I have been playing the video’s all day. Incredibly great. Also because of the variation in music styles. Maybe you should also listen to some songs of Kensington. Very challenging drumming (as it seems to me). I live in the Venlo area. Can we also see you play live somewhere?
Just found your site a few months ago and can’t go a day without listening/watching your covers. Fantastic!! I know you’ve been asked to cover many different songs by a variety of bands. But, I’ve not seen that anyone asked for Free, or Bad Company. I would ask that you listen to their albums and maybe choose something that you would like. There are too many to list. Thank you so much for your great music. It’s such a pleasure to watch and listen to you.
Hola Sina. Haces giras? Tienes pensado venir a México en algún momento?
You truly are an inspiration. I only started drumming about a year ago and i absolutely love it. I have two questions; how do you typically learn a new song (ear, sheet music, other) and how long does it take you to get a good record-able version?
Thanks Bill! It depends on the song, really. It took me 8 months to learn Metropolis by Dream Theater and only some minutes to learn Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen. I used some sheets before but 95 % of my drum covers are played by ear. Sometimes it’s useful to listen to an isolated drum track on YouTube or just check out another cover done by< someone else 🙂
Simply amazing !!
I discovered your channel this week and I’m sorry I did not do it a long time ago.
It’s amazing how a girl so horny is influenced by the great classics. And not only that. You give a beautiful and personal sound to your battery.
Proud that young blood continues the work of the greatest.
Continue Sina !!!
(Excuse my English.
I am from Spain)
Thanks a lot, Nico!
Are you going to have a 2022 Calendar ? I bought you 2021 and it’s really Great. I would buy a 2022 calendar if you make another one and have it for sale but please let me know when you have it for sale. So I’ll able to buy it.
Thank you Sina,
Hi Sina. Durch Zufall auf YouTube auf dich gestoßen. Sehr geil,was du da machst.
Schönen Gruß aus Krefeld. 🙂
hi sina, i had a doubt about your results. in the playalong contest you had participate but i don’t know what was the result, i admit that i write you last tuesday in your facebook account.
I only did one playalong contest 3 years ago, at Musikmesse Frankfurt. I won the second price, a set of Sabian cymbals 🙂 Today I would not take part in any contest anymore. Music is no sport…
TRY “LED BOOTS” OR “HEAD FOR BACKSTAGE PASS” BY JEFF BECK… OFF THE “WIRED” ALBUM.
Then “KARN EVIL 9 (PART 2) BY “ELP” ( EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER), FROM “BRAIN SALAD SURGERY”
IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE TIME… NO WORRIES.
LOL. I READ THE REPLIES TO FAQ… SEEM LIKE VERY GERMAN, “MATTER-OF-FACT” RESPONSES. GERMAN PEOPLE SEEM TO BE A BIT RIGID IN PERSONALITY. COULD HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH YOU BEING A “TAURUS” (IF THAT’S YOUR ZODIAC), AS WELL. I LIVE IN THE STATES (UNITED). FUNNY…. THAT GUYS ASK YOU TO MARRY THEM. “SURE… AS SOON AS I BUY A WEDDING DRESS, I’LL BOOK THE NEXT FLIGHT.” LMAO. INCIDENTALLY… SORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN COLOGNE. WE DON’T LIKE THOE MIDDLEEAST SAND-FLEAS ALL THAT MUCH OVER HERE. ANYWAY… KEEP POUNDING THOSE SKINS– SOUNDS GREAT!!
Ich habe auf youtube nach Schlagzeugsolos gesucht und bin auf dich gestoßen. Das was du machst, ist einfach nur genial, Riesen Kompliment. Ich habe immer Schlagzeug spielen wollen bzw. lernen, aber das hat leider nie geklappt weil in meinem Elternhaus zum einen nicht die Räumlichen Möglichkeiten da waren und zum anderen könnte ich mir ein Schlagzeug nicht leisten. Jetzt möchte ich mir eins kaufen und mir somit einen Jugendtraum erfüllen. Meine Frage an dich ist wo kann ich Musikstücke kaufen die ohne Schlagzeug aufgenommen sind die man dann spielen kann so wie in deinen youtube Videos. Und worauf sollte ich achten beim Kauf eines Schlagzeugs zum anfangen. Vielleicht kannst du mir weiter helfen.
Hallo Salvatore, vielen Dank für die netten Worte. Man kann viele Drumless Tracks direkt auf YouTube finden, einfach ‘drumless tracks’ im Suchfeld eingeben, da gibt es schon sehr sehr sehr viel 🙂
Hi sina, i am a huge fan of yours from Australia 🙂 love your work, so good for such a young age, you will have a huge future ahead of you 🙂
I have a song request for you! …i keep hearing it on the radio and everytime i hear it i think how much I’d love to hear/see you playing it!?! It’s ‘so lonely’ by the police, one of my favorites to play too! And has a great bass line and melody and such a great groove to it with that reggae feel, so if your interested and can fit it into your busy schedule i would love love love to hear you play this one day soon 🙂 hears a drumless track version for you to get on your way … https://youtu.be/IXPDhus_v3c
Keep up the great work and hope to hear back from you soon thanks for all your drumming! You rock Sina! X
Als je zo dicht bij Nederland woont kan je onderstaande beslist wel lezen.
Ik waardeer wat je kunt en doet, maar bedenk als je bekent of populair wilt zijn hoen daar een heleboel minder leuke dingen bij (helaas).
Of je reageert is helemaal aan jou, maar bedenk dat NIET reageren niet in je voordeel is.
Er zijn al teveel “bekende” mensen die minder bekent zijn geworden door niet te reageren op de fans.
En daar draait het om, om de fans…….geen fans en je bent niets meer.
Even goed wens ik je het aller beste toe en dat je maar uit mag groeien tot de grootste !
Zielepoot, denk je nu echt dat Sina verlegen zit om niet te antwoorden op kinderlijke vraagstelingen? Ene… ‘Fans’ verliezen ? Dat zal haar wordt wezen, ze heeft tienduizenen fans / volgers en als daar enkele negatievelingen (zoals u ) tussen zitten, die geen antwoord op hun absurde vragen krijgen, kan ik best begrijpen dat Sina hierop niet zal/wil antwoorden ! Tussen de grote groep fans die Sina voor haar drumcovers wel op handen dragen, zitten er altijd wel een bende negatieve elementen tussen die uit jalousie, geen meerwaarde leveren met het posten van negatieve commentaren. Zij zijn net als kiespijn – niemand wil daarmee opgescheept zitten!
Hola sina como esta?.. bueno no se si eres tu la que esta leyendo esto pero bueno jaja simplemente queria decirte eres muy buena con la bateria… y muy bonita y tambien queria compartirte que mi sueño mas importante y por el que estoy luchando es de ser uno de los mejores guitarrista… jaja ya se suena algo loco e imposible pero bueno… no pierdo las esperanzas que se valla a cumplir…. y me pregunta es si tu tienes algun sueño con respecto a la musica algo como alguna banda o algo así….?
Can you play “In still of the night” by Whitesnake? You’re great!!!
That one is pretty much on top of my list 🙂
Hi Sina, I love your chops. I’ve been on the drums for 48 years. I heard about you on the local radio in Knoxville, TN, USA.
My question is this…If you could meet and jam with any drummer, past or present, who would it be?
Thanks again! As I already wrote in my mail, that one drummer should be Ringo – knowing that I would be far too shy to say a word or make a move 🙂
You and your younger sister are very talented and are inspirations to all the little (and not so little!) girls out there that they can do anything they set their minds to. Your parents must be very proud of you! Whether you stay with music as a profession or continue with your education (many musicians also have a day job!) I wish you much success and happiness.
Thanks a lot, Susan!
WOW… I love finding young musicians that play at a level far beyond your age! You have absolutely NO reason to be shy if you have the chance to meet Ringo. (he might be saying the same thing about YOU!)..
I would love to see you play something with Tina S., another You Tube phenom, (guitar player). I can only imagine how far you will take the music industry!
Love your videos on YouTube. So fun to watch!
Which one are you most proud of? Or, which one took the longest to prepare for?
My apologies if you’ve already answered these questions; I couldn’t read through all the comments.
Looking forward to your next one!
How do you practice a song? Do you rather do it with drum sheets or do you listen to a song and work out the drum parts by yourself?
I prefer to work out the parts myself!
How did you learn English? (You say you live in Germany so i assume you German is your first language
I learned English at school, just like all the other German kids 🙂
A number of years ago I lived in another country and had several friends from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland and they all spoke very good English. Of course, they were older than you and had to use English on a daily basis in the place where we lived. Even so, your command of English is excellent – particularly your writing since you seem to be comfortable with idioms and colloquialisms. I’m sure your English is more than just “school taught”! Maybe you can have a sideline as a translator! Cheers!
English is a german(ic) dialect, have a look: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_language
Surprised about that roots?
Achtung, noch mehr Wurzeln: Los, los, marsch, marsch. Links, zwo, drei, vier… deutsche Geschichte besteht nicht bloß aus zwölf Jahren:
Like many others, I came across your You Tube videos and stared in amazement. I love watching extremely talented young people playing songs I grew up with and absolutely killing them !!! You are a very talented musician and I am in awe of your abilities. I loved Chi Might also… Awesome !! Here in the states I just play keyboards for fun in two different cover bands. I just turned 60 and have thought of packing it in – but I love playing so much, I can’t. You have a long life ahead of you and I know you will do well. I will enjoy following your progress. Just don’t let the industry eat you alive. I won’t ask for a song to do as I love listening to anything you do. Keep on Rocking Sina !!!!!
Thanks a lot Pete, that’s so lovely!!
Do you like any of Bruno Mars’ music? I personally like it. Asides from that I listen to almost exclusively classic rock. I love your covers and original music. I have been playing trombone since I was nine years old and bass since twelve, and I am astounded by how amazingly good you are.
Thank you for the music
I like Uptown Funk but that’s about it 🙂
Wie wird eigentlich entschieden, welche Songs
per Abstimmung gewählt werden können?
Kann es kaum abwarten neue Cover zu sehen.
Ich kann nur Songs covern, für die es drumless Tracks gibt. Ich schaue also nach drumless tracks und suche mir welche aus, die mir gefallen. Die stelle ich dann zur Abstimmung 🙂
hi Sina i just discovered you on you tube, you, i, m impressed as a dutch musicfan growing up in the late sixties and seventies and so forth that you apparently love much of that era , your cd chi might are own compositions, did you play all the instruments? one thing i know for sure , were gonna here from you in the coming years,
finally i got a request, a you tube cover of achilles last stand bonham was awesome on it
gr Gert-jan ps i share a lot of love with music with my daughter and son
Thanks a lot Gert-Jan! On my CD Chi Might I only play the drums, my dad plays a few guitar and bass parts and his friend and collegue Rick Benbow adds some keyxboard parts but there are also many other musicians included from all over the world. The idea is to feature different musicians for every song. As far as covers are concerned I need to rely on drumless tracks which are not easy to find. So it’s difficult to find tracks for requests, especially Led Zeppelin.
sorry if i’m insistent but it seems that there is not a new tutorial, because i believe that you will release a new video on friday, and it seems that the new tutorial is for the next tuesday. well, i hope you respond this if not don’t worry. i was delighted with every video that you launch every tuesday and friday
Hi again 🙂
Sorry, I could not upload a new tutorial this ween because my dad is still touring and we couldn’t get it done in time. There should be another tutorial on next Tuesday 🙂
sorry if i’m insistent but it seems that there is not a new tutorial, because i believe that you will release a new video on friday, and it seems that the new tutorial is for the next tuesday. well, i hope you respond this if not don’t worry. i am delighted with every video that you launch every tuesday and friday
Do you think you’d do a Wishbone Ash cover?
You showed up in my fb feed and blew me away……What about doing a cover of your fellow germans The Scorpions….Loving you Sunday Morning……or Rock You Like a Hurricane.(over played tho).
Keep rockin’ it girl
Thanks Denise! My choice of covers always depends on finding drum less tracks, so possibly in the future 🙂
I just discovered your videos and enjoyed them, being my favourite one “Sultans Of Swing”. Since you like “The Who”, I would love to see a drum cover of “Won’t Be Fooled Again”.
Keep enjoying what you do, enjoy your life and God bless you.
Thanks Hector, I’m going to launch a cover of Pinball Wizard very soon
I want to hear a Pretender of Foo Fighter. You are a really good drummer. I live in Essen and love to hear your cover of Foo Fighters. Thanx!
To Sina, You are a great talent and a very mature young lady. You are also very beautiful. You will have a very succesful life.
I enjoy your drumming. You have inspired me to get back in to drumming. I would like to see you do some late 70s and 80s songs, from my time, Maybe the Cars lets go or let the good times roll. Also id like to see Boston’s foreplay/long time. anyway thanks for the drumming.
to be truth i’m delighted when you’re playing drums, I can’t stop of seeing you play the drums, and also i know that is not easy in some ways. I would play drums, because I saw your last video and everybody thought that you were in wrong gig, except me,
Hi Sina, I’ve been playing drums- a cover band in college, and as a hobbyist for over 35 years since then, occasionally jamming. mostly just playing with music and headphones. It is not my day job, I’m not a pro like you, but I still love to play. You’ve been an inspiration since I found you on YouTube a few weeks ago and I’ve watched a ton of your vids already. Thank you so much for sharing, especially your tutorials where you break it down and slow it down. I’m learning a ton. All great songs too from my lost youth. I really don’t know how you got so good at such a young age, but rock on girl! You kill it.
I’m curious, do you transcribe the songs you cover and right the parts down, or just memorize everything and learn everything by ear?? I’m trying to figure out the best/fastest way to integrate all the parts into a cohesive song. It seems like it will take me forever to string it all together. Any suggestions?
Hi Mitch, thanks a lot for the nice comment! I attended a drum school once a week when I was 10 – 16. They came up with transcriptions from drum magazines, so I learned Metropolis by a transcription and also Jump. But as far as my recent covers are concerned (since 2014) I learn them by ear, I do not transcribe them, I wouldn’t be able to if I wanted. I listen several times and try to remember as many details as possible, but it’s not my approach to be ‘perfect’, for me it’s more about capturing a style.
Hi, Sina. I was wondering if you would think about doing a Santana, Soul Sacrifice drum cover?
If you’ve never heard the song I suggest you do. You’re going to LOVE IT! Here’s a link.
Thanks again, Sina. Be well.
You are awesome! I see in your one video, you played drums, ,keyboard, guitar and bass, do you play all the instruments in your original music ? And sing? and math ?? you truly rock!
Haha, thanks! On my album I only played the drums. I also enjoy playing the bass, getting more confident now. But I don’t play the other instruments to a professional standard, more just for fun!
You’re so beautiful and talented. I’ve always been fascinated with drums. Wish I had an ounce of your talent. Love your taste in music too. Wanted to pass on couple of my fave “drum” songs…Braveheart off of Yngwie’s Facing the Animal featuring the late great Cozy Powell, and Mean Man(especially the intro) by WASP from Headless Children with Frankie Banali from Quiet Riot. Also one of my best friends is a musician working work some older rockstar…Matt Starr, Fabricio Grossi, Alex deRosso. Check out Faithsedge “Restoration” top 10 melodic rock on many Asian and European rock magazine. The singer’s daughter is my goddaughter. They both play multiple instruments and she is a year or two older.
Hi Sina, I’m a 40 year old father of a beautiful 3year old daughter and I’m also a drummer who would love my little girl to play and maybe do something like you are doing. My question is : How do your parents handle all the sexual/negative comments that some people post on You Tube about you? . I know your about 18 years old now but when you were younger how did your parents handle it?
sina, you are unbelievable, 100000 suscribers are coming, how do you do for the 20000 views in a day? you’re special
I just discovered you today and loved your rendition of 25 or 6 to 4 and Woman from Tokyo. I would love to hear you do Rock & Roll from Led Zeppelin and I Can See For Miles from The Who. Bonzo and Moon are awesome on those and I bet you could be just as awesome.
Greetings and Blessings to you, Sina!
With great amazement, I watch your videos on YouTube. You’re an unmatched talent, and I am enjoying learning your story. Im a new fan (I discovered your videos only 3 weeks ago), and hope any future plan to tour over here will be made public well in advance.
I look forward to listening to Chi-Might, and wish you the greatest of successes!
Hallo Sina, Du hast wirklich einen klasse Sound. Dein Drumming ist ebenso fantastisch.
Leider habe ich nirgendwo in den FAQs gefunden, welche Mics Du verwendest.
Könntest Du bitte Dein Mic Setup (Kick, Toms, Snare, Overhead, etc.) posten?
Hab Deinen Youtube Kanal abonniert und schau immer wieder nach, was es neues von Dir gibt.
Viel Erfolg und herzliche Grüße
Hallo Leo, hier ist ein kleines Insider Video 🙂
Herzlichen Dank, das ist sehr aufschlussreich.
ich wünsche mir The Police – Message In A Bottle
Wieviele Stunden am Tag übst du? (vllt was für die FAQ?)
Alles Gute auf deinem weiteren Weg.
Kein Wunsch bleibt unerfüllt, kein Auge trocken 🙂
Üben? Nicht so viel wie ich sollte…
I noticed you said you were born in May 1999, what is the exact day? I was born on May 27th 1999 and it’s be totally cool if we shared the same date of birth. I’m a learning drummer from Ontario, Canada. I’ve been following your videos for a while and using your drum tutorials to better myself. You’re a massive help for learning “Pull Me Under” 🙂
I’m going to show your Dream Theater Covers to James Labrie when he gets home from touring. He lives right around the corner from me and would totally love to check it out and leave a comment or two (I might even record his reactions :D)
Hi Braeden, that’s very nice 🙂 My birthday is 6th of May 🙂
Hey Sina! I have a song request. It is called Bleed by Meshuggah which I have been trying to learn. For me it’s insanely hard, but I doubt it would be at all a challenge for you. Also, you are one of my favorite drummers on Youtube and it would be awesome to see you play it. 🙂
Hi Sina, I came across your YouTube videos just the other day and I have already watched through most of them! You are a true musical talent! Can I suggest you a cover of “Who Loves You” by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons? I think you might enjoy playing it.
i wish you all the destiny, maybe one day you can be in a rocking band. in other words, i hope you improve it, some guns n roses are coming
Just discovered your channel on youtube, and am buying the album. Some of it gives me goosebumps, it’s just great music. I very much like the cover of ‘Nothing else matters’, and you work with some great collaborators. Do you have any plans for another album?
As you have studied many different drummers I would value your opinion on Neil Peart. Is he an exceptional drummer or just an exceptionally accessorized one? How technically difficult is his style and is it musically intricate or just really busy? I do not drum unless you count beating on a banjo.
Sometimes you play the bass drums barefoot and others not. Is there a reason why?
Yes, sometimes it’s summer, sometimes it’s winter 🙂
You can tell I am not a drummer! I play bass (and have heard all the bass player jokes)!
I really like what you do and I think you’re awesome. Recently I have noticed that your album `Chi Might´ is available on Spotify. It would be a good idea to add the lyrics, too (via MusixMatch). I can do it, but only with your permission. So what do you think?
That’s so nice, Andras! I wouldn’t have a clue how to do that but if you could do that it would be awesome!!
OK, thank you. I’ll do my best.
Hi Sina. I just discovered your work a few weeks ago and love watching and listening to you play. You are an extremely talented young lady. I do have a request that would allow you to go totally nuts on the drums. The song is Funky Mule from the Buddy Miles Express from 1969. Buddy was a drummer who, in addition to his own band, played with Jimi Hendrix and his Band of Gypsies. Anyhow here’s the YouTube link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaSpCJwA4jw. Best of luck to you in your musical career and I look forward to hearing more work from you.
Dear Sina, your album is my favorite nowadays, many many thanks for the excellent music.
What’s the reason, the video Hiatus (with Briony) can’t be seen on youtube?
This may be due to copyright, as Briony has this song on her own album “Solstice”.
I hope this message will come to you. I found you on youtube with “wipe out” I know this “song”when I was 12, and now I’m 46 🙁 Drums make the diffrent in a song, so rock on. Animal from the muppets will hate you 🙂 Well, here is something to drum too, I hope the link works, Liebe Grüße aus die Niederlande, Jos Heiloo Holland. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4uChl4lmfk Beat your hard out 🙂
Thanks a lot und viele Grüße in die Niederlande!
Ich bin ca. vor 4 Std bei YouTube über Deine Videos gestolpert und seitdem Laufen ein paar Songs in der Dauerschleife. Ich bin hellauf begeistert, daß ein so junges Mädel eine solche Begeisterung für die guten alten Klassiker haben kann. Deine Drum Cover sind wirklich herausragend. Du hast ein Wahnsinnstalent.
Meine Favoriten von Dir sind die Doobies (ganz groß) , Alex van Halen und Dein Keith Moon Cover. Ganz großes Kino!
Ich wünschte mir ein Cover von Thin Lizzy – Bad Reputation….eine meiner absoluten Lieblingsbands und der Song ist einfach für gute Drummer geboren worden 😉
Ich wünsche Dir alles Gute und Erfolg bei allem was Du anpackst.
Hau rein Sina!
Sorry ist vielleicht kitschig aber ich hab geweint als ich Deine Version von Sultans of Swing gehört habe. Unglaublich. Wahrlich Terry Williams-Style (Alchemy-Tour). Ich hätte das nicht für möglich gehalten, geschweige denn von einer noch nicht volljährigen. Fantastisches Talent, ich wünsche Dir dass Du daraus das machen kannst, was Du möchtest! Wie geht es weiter, Musik studieren? MfG … ach ja auch wenn die Wunschliste geschlossen ist, eins meiner Lieblingsstücke ist Lazy von Deep Purple in der Made in Japan-Version.
By coincedance, when checking out some drum stuff of an old friend Raymond Herveille and his band Anderkovver, Youtube suggested one of your covers to look at. I ‘m glad I did. Damn your good and just the music I love! Keep it up, good stuff also the original tracks! Always wanted to start learning how to drum. Never had the confidence to do so. Have you tried Born to be wild by Steppenwolf already or is that not much of a challange to you?
Ferry – Puth, Limburg, Niederlande
Thanks a lot Ferry! Born to be wild is a great track of course but my to-do-list is soooo long…
Greetings in die Niederlande!
No sweat! I already guessed that your agenda is jammed till way beyond X-Mas 2027 🙂
I’m highly enjoying all your other videos anyway. Love the new Bon Jovi gig. Doesn’t that outdoor breeze mess with your hair 🙂 Nice footage and sound by the way; respect! Keep it up, you’re doing an awesome job! Good example to all those youngsters which are glued to their PS and X-Boxes. Looking forward to future posts.
Your 10-mile-long to-do-list; is it somewhere to be found on the Internet. Curious what’s coming next…
Ich habe alle fünf Holländer bei mir im Dorf gegrüßt.
Man I gotta move to a decent place soon.
Meine zwei Söhne versuchen sich im Schlagzeug-Spiel. Durch Zufall sind wir heute auf deine Youtube-Seite gestoßen und sind einfach nur begeistert! Bist Du evtl. auch bei einem Konzert zu hören?
Weiterhin viel Erfolg!
Hello Sina, Happy Easter to you. I’m about twice your age and a former drummer. I earn my living as food and beverage manager in a hotel. I can only listen and dream about drumming since it would be too noisy for the wife, daughter, and neighbors. I don’t know how you manage it. Maybe I have to get one of those ugly electronic kits. In my job I always ask people about food so my question(s) – what are your favorites? Are you a Döner Kebab girl or do you like more traditional fare. What’s your favorite food to eat at home, your favorite to eat if you go out, and, if you cook, your favorite to prepare? Do these questions sound too strange – well we all have to eat and enjoy food! Have a wonderful day.
Hi Just found your site and love your music. Can’t believe I’ve not come across you before. I really want to expand what music I play but how do you go about getting backing tracks with no drums in them ? Apart from the odd book I can’t find any anywhere. Or is it that you use an original track and take out the drum line? I’d love to know as you’ve really inspired me.
Thanks a lot and welcome, Linda!
For my covers I use drumless tracks which were created by someone else. Frankly, I do not have a clue how they were done 🙂
Which do you find more difficult to do: figuring out the drums for a cover or creating them of an original?
It depends on the complexity of a song. Figuring out the drum parts for an easy Pop song is no challenge at all. Getting those things right for a Rush or a Police cover is a challenge. What I do with my original songs is somewhere in between 🙂
Moin Moin aus Norddeutschland!
Ich spiele selber Schlagzeug und bin Veranstaltungstechniker…
Und ich bin sprachlos, wie wahnsinnig gut du Schlagzeug spielst! Echt fantastisch!
Mich würde mal interessieren, welches Recording-Equipment so benutzt wird. Also welche Mikros, Pult(?)oder ein Subkick Mikrofon dabei ist (weil die Kick ja schon ziemlich tief ist;)
Würde mich über eine Antwort und viele weitere tolle Videos freuen!
Hello from Virginia Beach, Virginia USA . I ran across one video of you playing and got so caught up in your playing and before I knew it I had watched over 15, and I’m still enjoying them. You seemed so relaxed when you play and you seem to have fun, and that’s what counts. I play Bass myself and have been for over 58 years and each time I play I’m in another world and very relaxed. Keep up the passion you love, And I “Thank You” for sharing the videos.
Hi Allen thanks a lot, that’s so nice to say!!!
hi sina again, i have another question for you: i’m new on patreon, i started recently joining to your page, but how i do to support you with the next cover of friday?
Hi Jorge, you can find me here: https://www.patreon.com/sina_drums
Thanks a lot for your request!!
yes, i make the possible but again the credit card avoid me to support you, i can find another way
Hi from Argentina, you will cover any Yes song , do you like Bill Bruford ?
There is going to be a cover of Yes’ Roundabout pretty soon 🙂
If you caught my attention, now that won my heart hahah
I love how you play the drums and how you ” messing around ” with other instruments, you fascinate me
Do you have any advice to start a youtube music channel?
Regards! 🙂 (From Tenerife)
Thank you! Yes, if you want to run a successful channel you need to be consistent and you need some discipline. You won’t get an audience over night. Unless you have some sensational content it will take time to find your audience!
Wooow nice choice ¡¡¡¡ I ´ll be waiting.
Hey Sina, greetings from Oz! After many years out of the drumming scene I bought a new kit and my 10 year old daughter has been getting into it. We came across your youtube channel and now she says “I’m going to be the next Sina”. Love ya work, inspiring stuff.
Hey, that’s so sweet!! So greetings to your daughter and best of luck!!
Hi Sina, how about some new performances with Milena?
Milena is actually rehearsing some drum parts and guitar bits. We’ll see how it goes 🙂
🙂 I don’t give up the hope 🙂
Hey Sina, you’re awesome! do you ever do any jazz drumming? i’d like to see you cover some Buddy Rich tunes.
Thanks for playing Still of the Night. You rock!!!!!
You are very welcome 🙂

Hi Sina, I just discovered your covers 2 days ago & I wanted to say how much I love your videos. I’ve noticed that there are so many people your age who are great at playing music. My brother was also born in 1999 & he taught himself how to play guitar about 3 years ago. I also found a few other musicians such as yourself on youtube all around that same age. My grandfather was also a musician years ago & my brother posted a lot of my grandfather’s music on youtube. Maybe you would like to check some of it out. They are pretty much just music not videos but they are still great recordings. There are a few videos from 1996 that my brother put on there. My grandfather isn’t in some of the actual videos. He played keyboard, piano, organ & accordion plus some singing. He also one video of himself playing guitar & singing at a school concert.
Which one do you prefer? Keith Moon, John Bonham or Neil Peart?
I can’t tell, really. None of them would have worked that well in a band of another of them, so they were all playing in the right band, that’s the important thing. I love all those bands and a lot more, my priorities keep changing from day to day 🙂
i’m continue seeing your videos, but if you want to see some details about me, visit me on my social media
Thanks Jorge Luis, I had a look 🙂
I sent you a message a few days ago thru contact form with some interesting links and to say thank You for nice comment on Sofia’s video. That meant really, really much to her. As I said, she just adores you. Now I just would like to make another suggestion on what you might cover next, or at least to think about it, or just listen to it 🙂 because it’s just on of the best rock songs in past two decades: Bruce Springsteen / The Ghost of Tom Joad, and not studio version, but one with Tom Morello on vocals and guitar. Song is from 1995, but version with Morello is released in 2014.
Thanks and best regards to you and your dad!
Hi again and thanks for your request. Some issues though – I’m fully booked for a couple of months, my to-do-list is incredibly long and I need a high quality drumless track for those kind of drum covers – they are only available for a couple of songs, not likely to find for random requests, so I’m afraid you have to bear with me….
Where do you get the drumless tracks for your covers?
Sina, Happy Birthday to You! Just saw this is your birth month! Really love your work! I have been listening and watching for little bit over a month now! How many instruments do you play? Would love to hear you talk more!
love all your playing can you tell me what the drum called its see through that you have on the kit you played hotel calafornia please what make and where can i get one please
all my love
Three lonely letters (with two being the same) for your next cover… YYZ 🙂
it is a shame that somebody stole the guitarist, yesterday i saw the information and i say that the guilty must be in process, i hope you don’t blame me because i was always appreciating your talent, that’s not mean that you had left replying, because i know also that another guitarist is complaining, have a nice day

The following songs witch may have in the future (in sina-drum)？
I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross
Africa – Toto
Groove 45 – Salsa
Fantasy – Earth, Wind & Fire
Let’s Groove – Earth, Wind & Fire
September – Earth, Wind & Fire
All great tracks but not easy to find drumless tracks – Toto causes copyright issues on YouTube, so no Africa, sorry!
15 year old son is a drummer and would love to know where to find drumless music for him to cover. Any recommendations?
Yes, do a simple query for ‘drumless tracks’ on Google, there are tons all over the web, but best tip: Do the same query directly in YouTube, there you can find a lot 🙂 Best Of Luck!
obwohl ich schon einige deiner Videos geschaut habe, ist mir nie aufgefallen daß du deutschsprachig bist. Dann wurde mir von YT das Here I Go Again Cover vorgeschlagen wo mir an der Treppe die vielen deutsche Bücher auffielen und mich dann die Neugier packte mal hier auf der Seite vorbei zu schauen.
Ich wünschte ich würde eins meiner Instrumente so beherrschen wie du aber da fehlt mir wohl der Ehrgeiz zu 😀 Ich wünsche dir viel Erfolg und vor Allem viel Spaß bei der Sache!
Danke daß du uns mit dein musikalischen Talent unterhaltet m/
Greetings, Sina. Of course I agree with everyone about your musical talent, but it’s clear that you also have a good business mind and OMG your mathematical interests must be complimented! I’ve designed computer circuitry and followed a link from your YouTube channel to a 2-bit multiplier circuit lesson! You’re living a life of maths using the Nyquist-Shannon theorem.
p.s.: My drummer keeps time well but how can I get him to arrive to practice on time? Vielen dank!
Hi, I’m from Venezuela, im such a big fan and i love you and your videos so much, i start playing drums like 3 years ago, what method do you think is best to learn to play drums? PD: sorry for my bad english xD
Thanks a lot! Just play the music you enjoy yourself. And if you want to go to the next level include some technical exercises – depending on the styles you want to play 🙂
hello sina again, last time i sent you a message and i asked for the tutorials, but you say that you had finished the drum tutorial, i believe that is coming live tutorials, see you on friday
Hi Sina! I’ve been following you since two days now and I’m fascinated by your talent! You’re style of playing is just the best I have seen! And I really wanted to make a quick request and Is if you could make a Cover of One by Metallica, I would really love to see a cover from that song by you!
( Thank’s about drumless tracks and copyright. )
The following song may have in the future (in sina-drum)？
Flieg mit mir fort – Andrea Berg
Honestly? This is not for me, sorry!
Hi Sina. Really enjoy your videos. Have you considered covering any Doobie Brothers songs? Perhaps “Jesus Is Just Alright with Me.” They were my favorite band in the 70’s. Saw them 5 times in concert. Keep up the great work!
Thanks a lot, Jeff! I did ‘Listen To The Music’ 🙂 https://youtu.be/Ua5FaTdqfgc
Just watched it. Very nice! Thanks.
Was für Drumsticks benutzt du?

Verschieden, meist Vic Firth Nova 5A, die gibt es gerade recht günstig bei Thomann….
I can’t help but think there has to be hundreds of bands that would like you as their drummer and have asked. Is it your choice that you remain as a solo drummer or just haven’t found the right fit? With your diversity of songs you perform, I can imagine you might get bored performing just one certain style/sound in the world of music.
Over the course of the last year or so, I have discovered countless young European girls/ladies performing on YouTube. You, MonaLisa Twins, Avonlea and those that you have videos with, plus countless others. If I lived in Europe and was a promoter, I would think gathering you all together for a concert tour would be an excellent investment.
I have to say, watching “Wipeout”…my feet and legs ached just watching you. 😉
Thanks a lot, Bruce. The reason I did not play publicly in bands so far (I did play though) is that I live in a small German village with no other musicians around. There have been many requests from the US but there was no chance for me to commit to any of those. Now that I’m 18 the world looks a bit different and I started quite a few different projects – but nothing I would make public at this time… Please bear with me 🙂
Seit über 30 Jahren mache ich selber Musik (Sänger, Heavy Metal Cover, Judas Priest u.A.). Durch zufall bin ich auf Deine Vids in Youtube gestossen… Wahnsinnig gut wie/was Du spielst. Ich liebe Dein Tom Sawyer Cover genauso wie Pull me under. Und es macht Spass Dir zuzusehen beim spielen, Du lachst dabei und da springt der Funke über. Vor allem finde ich gut, das Du weder arrogant noch überheblich rüberkommst und Spass an der Musik hast… Supertoll, gefällt mir sehr gut. Tja soll einer sagen die jungen Leute haben keinen Sinn mehr für gute Musik….
All thumbs up…….. Weiter so
Vielen Dank, Peter, das lese ich aber seeeeeeehr gerne 🙂 Beste Grüße!!
Habe dich grad zufällig bei YouTube entdeckt und ich muss sagen: HAMMER!!!!
Obwohl ich Deutschlehrer bin, fehlen mir da die Worte… 🙂
Ich klaue mal einen Kommentar, den ich bei “Bohemian Rhapsody” gelesen hab und versuche es damit auszudrücken: “You really do care for and respect the music you perform as a genuine musician.”
Liebe Grüße und mach weiter so,
Michael aus Süddeutschland (ein großer 60er, 70er und 80er Fan)
Hallo Michael, Deutschlehrer, oh je, da muss ich mich wohl zusammenreißen und versuchen, meine Rechtschreibfehler zu minimieren… Vielen lieben Dank für die netten Worte, als 60er, 70er und 80er Jahre Fan bist du hier auf jeden Fall genau richtig 🙂
Beste Grüße in den Süden!!
Bravo pour toutes vos interprétations, ce que vous faites est formidable, vous êtes très douée.
J’aimerais si cela vous tente, vous voir interpréter “Soul sacrifice” de Carlos Santana.
Je souhaite aussi acheter votre album
Hi Sina, I’m Aron from Tamworth NSW Australia, myself and friends have enjoyed watching your collaborations with Victoria K and Andrei, they are awesome, my personal favourite is your cover of The Trooper, that was brilliant!! Do you have any plans of coming to Australia to perform or have any more collaborations with some Aussie artists in the pipeline??
Hi Aron, thanks a lot for your nice message. There is more to come with Victoria! As far as touring in Australia is concerned…. so far I hardly left my basement, so I’m not quite sure if my first shows should be on the opposite side of the globe 🙂 Though I would love to be there!
ich bin kein Musiker (absolut Talentfrei) aber was Du und die anderen Meber von The Chi Might Project da gemeins erschafft ist genial. EInfach toll zu hören.
Könnt Ihr nicht einmal ein “USA for Africa – We are the World” Cover machen?
Daraus dann eine Challenge und anedre Musiker mit einbeziehen.
Die Welt von heute braucht mehr Licht.
Ansonsten macht weiter so ihr seit genial.
bin begeistert von deinen Videos und schau mit diese immer wieder gern an. Es ist einfach genial die zuzusehen. Manchmal würde ich mir gern eine Lächeln und einen Blick in die Kamara wünschen, glaub es würde dir gut stehen. Wünsch dir weiterhin alles Gute und ich bleib dran….
Vielen Dank, ich lächele schon so oft wie ich kann. Wer gerne noch mehr Lächeln hätte, dem lege ich immer diese junge Dame ans Herz. Mehr Lächeln geht dann wirklich nicht 🙂
Sina, Du bist einfach der Hammer, mehr kann und braucht man nicht sagen… wahnsinn. Du spielst mit soviel Gefühl, Spass… da zieht es einem glatt die Schuhe weg! Bin 23 und Du spielst die Musik mit der ich Dank meines Vaters aufgewachsen bin. Da macht das Zuhören und Zusehen gleich noch mehr viel Spass! Respekt, mach weiter so!
Vielen Dank, ich tu, was ich kann!!
hab Dich auch zufällig auf Youtube endeckt,, als ich nach ein paar Covers von “money for nothing” geschaut habe. Dachte bei Deinem, interessant, muss ich mir anschauen. Seit dem laufen Deine Songs in Dauerschleife und habe gleich Deinen Kanal abboniert!!
Wie Peter “THE ROB”Berger oben schon schrieb, bleibst Du auf dem Boden, wirkst natürlich und hast Spaß daran, was Du machst. Das ist klasse! Dachte wirklich schon, dass die Musik bei der heutigen Jugend ausgestorben ist.. Ein Glück, dass Du uns vom Gegenteil überzeugst!
Viel Glück, weiter so!
Ich weiß ja nicht, ob noch Musikwünsche “erlaubt” sind, aber vielleicht hast ja mal auf das hier Lust? Einer meiner Favoriten.. Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
‘Erlaubt’ ist alles 🙂 Das Problem liegt eher darin, dass ich inzwischen bei so vielen Projekten zugesagt habe, dass ich kaum Zeit für andere Sachen außer der Reihe habe…
Vielen Dank, das höre ich aber seeeeehhhhr gerne :))
Glen Campbell – I’m not gonna miss you.
Not a drum heavy song, but perfect for you and your friends. A tribute to one of the world’s best musicians singing about his upcoming death.
Artimus pyle from the “lynyrd skynyrd” band would be nice cover and tutorials.
Hi Sina! I love watching you play the drums, you really pour your heart and soul into it. I just subscribed to your you tube channel and really look forward to seeing more videos from you! I do have one request if I may. I just watched your cover video of Kiss – I was made for loving you. You did an awesome job! If you would, would you please consider doing another Kiss song “Forever”? I love the way Eric Carr played the drums in their Kiss video. It looks to me like it would be very hard but a challenge is sometimes a good thing! If you can’t or don’t care to, I completely understand. I know you are a very busy woman! I thank you for sharing your talents with us and it’s greatly appreciated. I hope you get much support for all your hard work! Also, have you ever met any famous rock star in person or ever heard from one? I’m sure they would be amazed at your playing! Take care and best wishes!
Hello Miss Sina.
This is a late message but i’m truly greatful that you send me a new copy of Chi Might when the first one got lost in the mail. It’s so nice to put in in the cdplayer when i came home from work and filled the bathtub and put a beer on the edge and press the bubblebotton and just relax and enjoy your fabaulus originalsongs.
I have a question Ive would like to ask you about a projekt so i would aprichiste if you could contact me. Best regards Magnus from Stockholm.
Have a great weekend.
mir gehts hier, wie vielen Anderen auch. Da stöbere ich ein wenig im YT und finde einen Song, der mir gut gefällt. Dabei war ich gar nicht darauf vorbereitet, dass Du da mit im Spiel bist. Für mich wirkte das wie ein wunderbares Extra Schmankerl. Damit war mein Interesse speziell an Dir schlagartig entbrannt. Was könnte da noch alles von Dir kommen. Ich war früher selbst mal Musiker, nur nie Drummer. Trotzdem war ich immer von guten Drummings begeistert (Antolini uvm.).
Tja, je mehr ich von Dir gesucht habe, um so mehr und immer wieder liefen mir mit Deinen Covers weitere wohlige Schauer den Rücken runter. Eine Nummer besser als die Andere. Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass so junge Mädels, wie Du solch ein unglaubliches Talent haben. Davor muss ich als “alter Sack” wirklich den Hut ziehen.
Ich bin selbst ein Liebhaber der Klassiker (und betreibe auch eine Website, die sich auschließlich um die Klassiker kümmert) und habe all’ diese guten Zeiten mit erlebt. Ja und diese Klassiker der Misikhardware scheinen sich auch sehr gut mit der eben so alten Software gut zu ergänzen. Nachdem ich nun aber gehört habe, welch “neues” Leben Du den alten Songs mit Deiner Performance einhauchst, bin ich nun hin und weg von Dir und Deinem virtouosen Spiel mit den Drums. Da kommt meine klassische Anlage mit Deinen Aufnahmen wieder so richtig in Schwung und in der nächsten Zeit werden wohl die Nachbarn einige Strassen weiter von mir mit Deiner Musik versorgt ;).
Dir scheint es offensichtlich sehr viel Spaß zu machen (und das sollte es ja auch) und wenn ich dann auch noch sehe, mit welcher Leichtigkeit Du da spielst, da geht mir schon wieder ein Schauer den Rücken runter. Kurz, ich konnte nicht umhin, 1. Deinen Kanal zu abonnieren und 2. Dich auch gleich noch zu unterstützen, indem ich auch einen Stick von Dir erworben habe.
Solche besonderen Fähigkeiten muss man einfach förden. Ich finde es einfach genial, wie absolut synchron Du mit den Songs spielst. Ich würde mir und auch allen anderen in der Musikwelt wünschen, das wir von Dir noch sehr viel mehr zu sehen und zu hören bekommen.
Ich wünsche Dir alles Gute und ganz viel Erfolg fü Deine musikalische Zukunft. Ich glaube ganz fest an Dich und bin mir sehr sicher, dass Du das auch mit viel Freude schaffen wirst. Wie das auch schon einige Andere gesagt haben, bin ich echt froh, dass es auch aus Deutschland wieder mal richtig guten und dann noch so jungen Nachwuchs mit so viel Talent gibt. Bitte bleibe für uns alle weiter am Ball.
Schöne Grüße aus dem Westerwald
vielen lieben Dank und Grüße zurück in den Westerwald! Es freut mich sehr, wenn dir meine Arbeit gefällt. Mit der Musik von heute kann ich nicht viel anfangen, daher spiele ich momentan hauptsächlich klassische Rocksongs. Wer weiß, vielleicht wendet sich das Blatt ja irgendwann mal wieder zu handgemachter ‘echter’ Musik 🙂
Du hast das drauf und genau deshalb glaube ich an Dich. Ich hoffe mal, das Du auch ein Paar eigene Kompositionen machst, die kein Cover sind. Du bist gut genug dafür. Mach ansonsten aber weiter so, weil das einfach unendlich Spaß macht. Ich wäre auch mal gerne live bei Dir dabei. Das ist noch eine besondere Athmosphäre. Schade nur, dass wir nicht mehr in “Deiner Ecke” wohnen. Wir wohnten noch vor 6 Monaten in Deiner Nähe. Da wäre das sicher mal gegangen. Wenn es mich noch mal in Deine Gegend verschlagen sollte, würde ich gerne mal persönlich bei Dir reinschauen, wenn Du kein Problem damit hast.
Schöne Grüße aus dem Westerwald
Hi Sina, the Black Velvet is awesome, I really love it.
Please do a cover of Camera Eye by Rush. I want to see you add some additional percussion pieces to your kit.
Hi Sina, you have another fan here. Can’t believe how great you are and I am watching all your drum covers. They’re all amazing but particularly the Dream Theater stuff. Wow. The sound on your kit is also incredible. Would love to see you doing See See Rider by Elvis or Polk Salad Annie, also by Elvis (huge Ronnie Tutt fan). Keep on Rockin’ Sina…
Hello Sina, recently I found your Youtube channel and I like it, very nice musical taste, its amazing that you look like lovely girl and at the same time you understand and attack what you playing on drums. Saludos desde Mexico.
Hey, do you like some jazz and fusion? it would be great see you playing some of bebop jazz or something like that, please listen Tank! by The Seatbelts, if you make a cover of that song it would be amazing!
I haven’t seen anyone on YouTube cover Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Can’t Go Back’. Will you please consider this song for your next cover?
Love your drumming!
I haven’t seen anyone on YouTube cover Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Can’t Go Back’. Will you please consider this song for your next cover?
Love your drumming!
Hey Sina, Still in awe of your music, but as I’ve read some of your requests, you need to chase up them Double sided T-shirts, I’d buy one.
Your drum work is amazing, I love to hear you and your friends play! I’ve tried my hands (and feet) at playing the drums, and I know it’s a very challenging thing to do…I can never seem to get my feet and hands working separately very well. Anyhow, one thing I’ve wondered is do you ever play anything by Rush? Neal Peart is one of my all-time favorite drummer/percussionsts and his drum solos are absolutely amazing.
Keep up the great work, and I look forward to hearing more original songs in the future!
Hey Sina big fan my name is John-Paul I Love your music vids expcially Kickstart My Heart drum cover . Can you plz do a Q&A live stream as I have a few questions if not here they are
1will you consider joining a Canadian band as a drummer as there might be a new band
2can I plz have a shout-out in your next vid
For some reason the last comment never got sent! Would you, Alexei and Victoria consider Joe Bonamassa version of Last Kiss? Listened many times to it and realised that the dynamics on the drums are ‘right up your street! And, of course, Dad needs to play the organ part. Keep on rocking, and ask Dad to enhance the ride and crash cymbals. Can’t quite hear them in the mix.
My Super-Sina T-Shirt arrived today so tomorrow i’m gonna flash it at my work.
Do you organise meet & greet(s) for your fans? Or are you going to do?
Where do drum-less tracks come from? Do you need separate recordings and then simply leave out the drums, or is it possible to delete drums after everything is already mixed?
Hi Sina. I enjoy watching you play, so thank you. I’ve just met you on You Tube so I’m new and maybe I’ve just missed it, but is your Mom also involved with music?
Hello Sina from South West Florida, US-of-A! Enjoy the videos! Looking forward to lots more! Do you know Highway Star by Deep Purple? I don’t find it in your videos. Seems like it would be right up your alley! Here’s my favorite version. It’s a cover, but these guys (you know them) can more than handle it. It’s by Chickenfoot just in case you can’t get it on YT over there. Keep rockin-it with all that talent of yours!
I’m 74 years old and have no musical talent whatsoever. I found your videos last night and have not stopped watching them. I want to learn much more about drumming. It is fascinating. I looked around the net for other girl drummers(Is that the proper word?) and most of them started at age 5 or 6. You started at age 10!! My biggest question is how can the brain coordinate two feet and two hands at the same time? I hope to find answers. I’ll buy some drumming books if I can find them. I’m also going to find a way to support your work. I respect talent like playing great and learning English so well. I still cannot speak proper English and I live in the Western part of the USA!
I am curious if I could help you find sheet music for Led Zeppelin Songs, so that you can do Led Zeppelin Covers? Always Happy to help Out.
I just recently discovered you on youtube and I’m glad I did. You have great taste in music that you cover and I think you’re very good. Also, I like your originals. Your videos are well made with great angles that catch all the action. Some are quite whimsical, too. I wish you great success and all the happiness life has to offer. Take care, play hard, and keep smiling.
A fan in Colorado.
Not quite sure how I got to this site in the first place but glad I did.Since I have been here I find it hard to get away.Just watching and hearing you play almost makes me want to go buy another drum set.Yes I did play many years ago long before you tube. Hal Blaine was the one that inspired my to play. I bought a small set ,set up in my parents basement with a record player and some 45s. Well anyway since I don`t really have time for that anymore I will just be happy with you keeping me entertained. Keep up the good work.You are one beautiful and talented girl (and so is your sister so give her some credit too)
and I will do as much as I can to support you.
I just want to let you know, taht your page on Spotify is kind of wrong and mixed with another Sina from germany 😀
Hey, I saw your videos with my little daughter (4 years old).. and she loved them!!. Please, keep on doing your fantastic drum covers. I’d like my little daughter to play the drums like you when she is a little bigger…
Greetings from Ecuador
I really like your drumming, especially the hard rock covers. You’re amazig, mastering all drumming techniques and music styles.
Have you ever listened to Manowar? The Manowar-drummers Donnie Hamzik and Scott Columbus (died 2011) are among my favourites.
You should do cover versions of “The Heart of Steel” and “Warriors of the World” which are Manowar songs with very nice drumming. 🙂
Gruß von Norwegen
The Heart of Steel, drummer: Donnie Hamzik
German version – Herz aus Stahl, drummer: Scott Columbus
Warriors of the World United, drummer: Donnie Hamzik
You have a lot of talent which belies your age. I have noticed a few covers you did with Jaydn Rylee. One of them was “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac (Lindsay Buckingham). I don’t know if you plan to work with her again but you guys should check out Holiday Road which Buckingham wrote. It’s known as the the theme from “National Lampoon’s Vacation” It’s a lot of fun. In 2015 the Zack Brown Band did a version of it that was faster than original with better drum parts. for the reboot “Vacation” with Ed Helmsand Christina Applegate (awful sequel but great recording) Perhaps you can look at both versions and the vocal and drum part and play around with it. I think you could do something interesting and unique.
Wow. Your timing is fantastic and your sound incredible. I pounded a kit in the 60s when “Wipeout” was the standard audition for anyone who wanted to get their sticks into a rock group. At my best (which was mediocre to say the least), I wasn’t even close to your talent and sound, Great job lady. At 70, I’m almost temped to buy a new trap set but I may just sit back and enjoy your work. Best of luck to you to a great lady.
ich folge Dir jetzt schon seit einiger Zeit. Freut mich, dass Du nun auch eine eigene Band hast und wenn ihr nach Hamburg kommt, bin ich dabei. Und die CD kaufe ich dann auch, sobald sie raus ist – ich bin oldschool, mit download alleine habe ich es nicht.
Wie ist es eigentlich, als bei weitem jüngste in so einer Band zu spielen?
Meine eigentliche Frage ist aber eine andere: Du sagst, dass Du Computerwissenschaften studierst. Was genau? Und wie schaffst du das neben der Musik? Vor allem aber, warum? Du kannst doch von der Musik leben? Dank Deines Könnens und der Kontakte Deines Vaters sollte das doch kein Problem sein, jetzt schon mit 18? Willst du das nicht?
Sorry für meine Neugierde, aber ich kenne viele Leute, die Musiker werden und es besser lassen würden, aber bei dir wäre es schade, wenn es nicht würde!
Viele Grüße aus Hamburg
Hi Sina, got to thank you once again. Your channel inspired me to digitalize an old video tape of my former band Flight 90 and to put it on my channel. Check it out if you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SH80OVlJYM Rock on.
I’ve watched a lot of you’re videos and passed a lot of links on to drummer friends of mine. I’d really love to see you do about a three minute video with no backing track of just you playing something as technical and difficult as you can dream up.
I am a Girl Drummer like you (somewhere in Bayern). But much much older and I started to learn very late. Lots of people think drumming is real easy. But I know how hard it is and how much practising it takes to get good. I would therefore like to know if you have been taking lessons and probably still are. I would really guess YES. Let me know. I think your drumming is amazing.
Sina, I hate to parrot everyone else, but WoW ! I was amazed watching your You Tube videos, they are very addicting. Keep up the great work ! One question . Have you ever rocked out to any Runaways tunes ? ( Joan Jett’s old band from the 70’s ) You remind me a lot of the late great Sandy West.
I have noticed you don’t monetize your page, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra cash every month

I listened to a small local radio station in Norway last Saturday, “Jærradioen”, and suddenly I heard “The Sound of Silence”. They never announced the artist, but I am sure it was the version by you and Jadyn Ryleel. Cool!
Hey did you ever see this drummer at the wrong gig?
If you want to laugh harder play it at 2x speed.
…eigentlich habe ich bei YouTube nur “Sultans of Swing” von den Dire Straits gesucht, und was find ich? Ne super Schlagzeugerin, von der ich im ersten Moment dachte, die kommt aus Amiland. Und wenn man dann neugieriger wird und sich durchklickt, landet man hier.
Bei mir isses über die Blockflöte inner Grundschule nie hinausgegangen, meeega Kompliment, für das was du da fertig bringst.
Der Niederrhein muss ne kreative Gegend für Schlagzeuger sein; irgendwo aus der Ecke kommt doch auch der “Trainer” von Herbert Knebels Affentheater.
Respekt und weiter so und vor allem viel Glück fürs Studium. Ich guck wieder rein! 🙂
Boa tarde, Sina! Sou Roberto Barbosa, jornalista de Belém do Pará, Brasil, América do Sul. Há pouco mais de um mês passei a conhecer seu trabalho pelo YouTube e apreciei bastante sua desenvoltura na bateria, um dos instrumentos que sempre me fascinou. Não sou roqueiro, como se diz aqui no Brasil, mas já trabalhei com aparelhagem sonora, fui o que se chama hoje de DJ – na minha época era disque-jockey. Enfim, meu contato, aqui, é para lhe parabenizar por seu talento, pela seriedade com que desenvolve seu trabalho, que é nota 10 e na esperança de que você continue em frente. Um grande abraço.

Do you still have any 2018 calendars left? I am not seeing them of you website
Oi, Sina! Continuo acompanhando suas postagens. Parabéns, menina! Vá em frente!
You have an amazing talent and deserve every success.
Hi. Love your work. Just wanted to suggest a cover of Jeff Beck and ZZ Top – Ernie Ford’s SIXTEEN TONS.
Hallo Sina, als ich deine Videos auf youtube fand war ich sofort begeistert. Wow, eine junge Frau Jahrgang 1999 und solche Musik und vor allem DRUMS! Ich bin Jahrgang 1949, gehe stark auf die 70 zu, ha-ha. Habe einige Bands live gesehen von deinen drum cover. Du reichst denen locker das Wasser. Weiter so und viel Erfolg mit deiner Musik. Macht ihr mal eine Live-Tour? Viele Grüße aus Osthessen. Sina drums forever!
Hi Sina, I’ve only just stumbled onto your videos, and I’m gob-smacked at your talent.
I’m a Pink Floyd nut from way, way, way back, so I’m curious what you think of Nick Mason’s style.
I saw you used a snippet of ABitW in your comment on drum machines. I’d love to see a few more Floyd covers.
e.g. with your dad on bass, doing “One of These Days” …
As you are a fan of Bill Buford, why not take a shot at “Easy Money” by King Crimson? It’s a little longer than your usual covers but it’s IMO one of the best overall drumming performance of Bruford as he snakes his way through quieter and louder moments with transitions typical of his unique style.
You don’t over-drum …. that itself is a great skill in your covers …. Charlie Watts (Stones), Max Weinberg (Springsteen) have made a career out of keeping it simple. For your own stuff, go for it, jazz it up, rock it up, mix it up, all the best …. you clearly have the talent …. go forth you good drummer …. !
Happy birthday Sina. Just ordered your USB. Love your You Tube videos. You are quite talented. Keep up the energy and you will have a rewarding career in music.
By the way, have you covered any instruments and/or vocals from ABBA?
Thank you again for providing us the pleasure of so much of what you’ve done.
I did not know anything about you but being a fan of Jay Osmond of the Osmond Brothers who is also a drummer I found myself listening to your drum cover of ” Smoke on the Water” you are very talented, after listening to a few more of your videos I think I will purchase your first c.d. keep the beat.
I have to be honest I did not know anything about you but i am a fan of Jay Osmond of the Osmond Brothers who is also a drummer I found your video doing a drum cover of ” Smoke on the Water” you are very talented, after viewing a few more of your videos I have decided to purchase your c.d.
Simply: I just love you! Some day You shall be one helluva big name in the History of Music, especially with drumkits. I am sure of it.
You might want to try Neil Pearth (Rush), Canada. He’s not that bad, at least worth to listen. #1 Rush/Presto: Show, Don’t Tell (Geddy Lee/Alex Lifeson/Neil Pearth)
There are lots of covers on the internet youtube, but what I have seen, you might be the one playing most relaxed, if you know what I mean. Non too tensed.
I’m lookin’ forward seeing you making Rush rising again.
Besides, You look Gorgeous! 🙂
I can’t believe you are not in great demand for session work in a great many studios. Or are you? You are a great drummer.
Sina I’m your fan number one here in Brazil. Please, describe your cymbals set.
A huge hug.
I aw your YouTube video of your drum solo Sultans of swing and it really is amazing!
You mentioned loving Henry Mancini’s music but I have only found one cover that being the Pink Panther Theme. I was wondering have looked at his other body of work? I was thinking the Theme from Peter Gunn a hard driving Jazz number; or something from one of his many movies he scored.
Have you ever listened to Gene Krupa? He is considered one of greatest drummers to come out of the Big Band era. I have a cassette of him on drums doing Sing, Sing, Sing from the 1939 Jazz Concert at Carnegie Hall that was unbelievable. Suggestions on how to convert to CD I would sent you the track so you could hear it.
Good luck with all your endeavors.
Your amazing!! Have you ever met any of the bands you cover? Have they asked you to play for them at a concert, like KISS for example?? That would be very cool
Hi Sina: As a prog rock fan before there was such a term I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your playing as well as your collaborations. Please consider a cover of an Emerson, Lake & Palmer song.
Bin durch Zufall auf deinen Youtube Kanal gestossen, Genial was du machst.
Kann mann dich auch mal Live irgendwo sehen, gibst du Konzerte ?
I just discovered you on Youtube, so I became in a fan of you, What microphones do you use for your drum set. Any specific brand???
Thanks a lot
Already lost faith in your generation. Then I found your web site. Go your own way!
Sina…..greetings from the US! Big Dire Straits fan so came across your covers while listening to Mark. I grew up listening to almost all your covers and simply put you are the greatest drummer I’ve ever seen or heard! And at 19….seriously!!! All of you out there…..we are witnessing a once in a generation phenomenon. The BEST drummer for the next 40 years is German and I hope she comes across the pond soon so I can see her live!
I love the cover of MJ beat it. I dont know how to request a cover by you so here it is. Smooth criminal by MJ. Best DH
Keep Rocking Sina!
Greetings from America, Sina! I am a huge fan of your drumming and I always make sure to watch you play! This comment section gives me a perfect opportunity to ask this question I’ve been wondering about: it seems that whenever you make a video were you go barefoot, a lot of your fans only care about how beautiful your feet are to them. Since most of these people in question are grown adults, does this worry you at all? Do you think you should be concerned about this, considering most of the videos where you do so are when you were underage?
Sina also had/has elbows, a cute nose, beautiful skin….where shall we start?
Will you offer a calendar for 2019?
Whill Chi Might II be available on CD as well?
Hi Sina. Guten Tag.
I have become a fan with the seeing of « Jump Cover ».
Today, I have seen « My Sharona Cover ».
From Chi Might I, I love TWENTY-ONE ELEVEN and IV. And also KYLIE JENNER.
Can I get a reduced price if I buy both Chi Might I & II ?
Could you send me signed / dedicated copies please ?
Have a nice day !
Hi Sina !
I have got two weblogs for music.
One is called « Soutenons Nos Artistes » (« Let’s Support Our Artists ») and the other is called « Musique A L’Honneur » (« Featuring Music »).
The first one is to support unknown artists who would like to be known.
The second one is to let great musicians be known by a greater audience.
You are very talented !
Tell me if you want to be featured in one of my weblogs !
Would you like to be featured in one of my two weblogs ?
I hope that you will play more songs by Rush.
Emerson Lake and Palmer was one of my favourite groups.
Carl Palmer is a great drummer
I would really like to hear you do Topsy, Part 2, by Cozy Cole. It was his only “hit” song and a jazz/big band/rock crossover. Cozy Cole ran a music school with Gene Krupa in the 1940’s -1950’s in New York City. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBotlTI4BUk
Love your talent girl, I started playing about 50 years ago and the Beatles were who I cut my teeth on. If us lovers of music had just 10% of your skills, the average drummer would be turning summersaults. I was wondering if you or your dad ever thought about doing one of the high energy Grand Funk Railroad songs? There are so many but some of the great ones are Inside Looking Out, Paranoid, Heartbreaker, Into the Sun, or maybe one you like better. Never quit sweetie, you are one of a kind and we need you to teach the youth of today about real music. Thanks for bringing me real joy, I love every one of your performances. Gary
What size of mounted Tom’s and floor Tom’s do you prefer?
Hi– it would be great if you could do some Christmas songs since you’ve done nursery
erst mal möchte ich dir sagen das dein Cover von Anika Nilles einfach absolut mega war. ich Liebe ihren Style und ihre Off Rytmus.
Ich hoffe sehr das wir beide mal was Texten können ich selber spiele Ca 12 Jahre Schlagzeug und bin nicht mal annähern so gut wie du.
Hoffe du antwortest mir und wir können ein wenig Quatschen und uns evlt ein wenig kennen lernen.(rein Musikalisch und als Kumpel keine Sorge)
Lg aus Leverkusen (Bei Köln)
I would like to know what drum did you use to play “Listen to the music” of doobie brothers. I like the sound
Thank you and congratulations, you are a great artist
What are the drum mics you use – in your most recent videos?
Sorry if this Q has already been asked 🙂
Hi sina, I’m so fond of your drumming and I love your musical taste I’ve got almost the same. I’m sure you’ve got plenty of covers to make but I’ve got Some songs that I’m sure you could perfectly cover. – Blonde over blue by Billy Joel – Inside out by Phil Collins – Sat in your lap by Kate Bush – Migration by camel I’ll Be so glad if you could cover one of them. From one of your biggest fan .
I don’t Know If Sina is still answering that website, maybe she’ stop busy.
Du spielst echt klasse und es macht eine grosse Freude Dir zuzusehen…Danke. Es ist erstaunlich was Du schon alles auf die Beine gestellt hast, Hut ab. Bitte Pass auf Dich auf und Arbeite nicht zu viel. Ich meine die ganzen Videos, die Videos mit den anderen Musikern, Auftritte mit Deiner Band, die Internet Präsenz… das muss ein immenses Pensum sein. Bleibe am Ball aber versuche nichts zu erzwingen, alles braucht seine Zeit.
Wenn möglich mache mindestens einmal im Leben eine lange Reise… da lernt man am meisten!
Viel Glück in Deinem Leben
Have you ever considered doing some work with Tobias Sammet and Avantasia?
Question from Texas. Do you plan on doing a “Pamela – Toto (Drum cover)” in the future? I love your Toto drum covers. Love all your older rock drum covers. Thanks and keep cranking it out.
Ola sina! Passei só para te dizer que para mim és a melhor baterista que já vi, eu também sou, mas nada como tu, continua, muita saúde e felicidades para ti, um forte abraço com muito carinho e afeição!
I don’t know if you view this anymore, but you reall should cover Audioslave “Like A Stone”. Damn hard drumming.
I love the drum covers you do and your obvious enjoyment and talent for traditional rock. It looks like you are developing a skill level that will allow you to adapt to about anything by now. I am not a musician or a musical talent of any kind, but I do enjoy a lot of the music from the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s. I had satellite radio, 60s on 6, in the background and the host was talking to a musician. I don’t know the names, sadly, like I said it was in the background. The musician mentioned that the drum part from Del Shannon’s “Runaway” was notable. It caught my attention because it is not a song with a drum solo like “Wipeout” or “Ina Gadda Da Vida” or Rare Earth’s “Get Ready”. YouTube videos seem to show a fair amount of action there. You might want to check it out and see if it is something you might want to do along with some of the other artists that you work with. Always wishing you the best of luck and continued success with your talent.
Thanks a lot, Fred, will check that out if I get a chance. I’m really busy now recording old and new music, it’s hard to listen to something else whilst recording 🙂 Best Wishes!!
You have probably never heard of Buddy Rich. For my money, the greatest drummer of all time. Can you do a cover of one of his drum solos? Here is an example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxN-wN0LW3o
I am Korean.
I was impressed with your drum performance.
I want to buy the music and sheet music you played. Please let me know how.
Hi Sina, bei den verschiedenen Songs sehe ich unterschiedliche Drumsets und Mikros. Welche Drums und welche Mikros verwendet ihr am liebsten ? Was machst Du, um die Bassdrum so klingen zu lassen: perfekt stimmen, Dämpfung oder beides ? Benutzt Du auf der Snare einen Fellring ? Wie verhindert ihr das Mitschwingen des Snare-Teppichs, wenn Du z.B. nur die Toms spielst ? Nach über 25 Jahren Tontechnik stosse ich immer wieder auf die gleichen Probleme: die Leute können ihr Set nicht stimmen, unterschätzen die Wirkung eines Fellrings und wissen auch oft nichts über eine geeignete Dämpfung. Sehr gern möchte ich Deine Erfahrungen zu diesem Thema lesen. Vielen Dank im voraus für Deine Mühe !! LG, Thomas
Hi Sina, i was wondering if you know Steven Wilson’s former band Porcupine Tree; i guess you do since i read you like progressive rock. It’s one of my all time favourite bands and both their drummers, the earlier one, Chris Maitland and the second one, Gavin Harrison, are both in my list of favourite drummers. I was wondering if you ever considered covering a song like ‘The Sound of Muzak’, or i guess the even more complicated ‘Anesthetize’. The first song’s drum part has become a famous groove among drummers or so i heard. The second one is one of my favorites; Gavin Harrison is such a talented drummer. I reckoned, after i saw and heard your cover of Van Halen’s ‘Jump’, you might be just as gifted as he is. I’d be delighted to hear and see you play one of those songs or both. Since i watched your ‘Jump-cover’ your my latest drumidol. I put that video on every day at least once; your joy is just contagious; i keep on smiling, laughing and yelling (í’m 46 years old and quiet sane i guess lol). Right now i’m sharing that video with my music loving friends and family. Wir konnen ja auch auf deutsch reden wenn du das preferiert. I hope you will be able to oblige me with a response one day and curious whether you like my suggestions. Would REALLY love to hear and see you play those parts. I wish you all the best and keep up the good work.
Hey Sina, what’s your thoughts on open-handed drumming? Do you play it yourself at all?
Thanks in advance for a probable answer;)
Ach Sina, sei dankbar das du so viel Unterstützung hast. Das sag ich dir als uralter Mann, der in den 70er und 80er Jahren Rock und Folk Musik gemacht hat, und damit gescheitert ist. Warum? Eben weil ich nie Unterstützung hatte, da fällt man dann besonders tief. Irgendwann verliert man den Glauben an sich selber, und dann geht es rasant abwärts.
Ich wünsch dir alles gute und möglichst wenig von den Falltüren die das Leben so drauf hat.
You are a beautiful young lady and the most talented drummer ever. You have a great personality.America loves you.Please let me know if you read this.
I’m from New Zealand. I admire your style of drumming, and the Kirchhoff kits you play have an amazing sound. I myself like to play around on my Pearl EXR series kit from time to time.
The question I’d like to put to you, is that when you were playing Layla, I noticed your kit was lit up. Was the lighting system designed by the Kirchhoff Schlagwerk for the Kirchhoff kits? Also, what are the chances of your suggesting to your drum manufacturers to create a lighting system in a kit that flashes upon vibration of the skins?
I’ve never seen a kit lit up like yours, and I’ve not heard of any other drum manufacturers having incorporated such a system in any drum kits before.
Keep up the brilliant drumming, both cover and original. Well done Sina.
Haben Sie jemals darüber nachgedacht, ein Video darüber zu erstellen, wie Sie Ihre Videos erstellen? Wissen Sie, hinter den Kulissen?
Have you ever met Cesar Zuyderwijk, drummer of the greatest Dutch Rock Band ever: Golden Earring. For a synchro session for example?
ich freue mich immer wieder, wenn Du ein neues Video veröffentlichst – Du spielst wie eine Göttin
Tourst Du eigentlich mit The Gäs auch in anderen Städte oder habt Ihr das vor? Würde Dich gerne mal live sehen. Komme aus der Nähe von Koblenz.
Ist Milena eigentlich auch musikalisch noch dabei oder macht sie das nur gelegentlich?
Thank you very much. I stumbled onto a you tube page having you play VH “Jump” It was so beautiful I cried.
Even though I live in The Netherlands, just across the border close to Emmerich, I prefer to type in English.. I saw some great drumming.. coming on your Youtube, because I was looking for someone playing Money for Nothing (is there a good way to count at the beginning of that song?)
Looking at what you’ve played besides that.. some wonderful songs.. I’m a big fan of Queen and a lot of Prog Rock bands as Genesis, Pink Floyd and Marillion..
I know you have a list with most requested songs,, so these will probably never get on there, but if you’d like, please check these out.. (all from Marillion):
– Lords of the Backstage (which is in 13/8 I guess)
– The King of Sunset Town
– White Russian (one of my favorites)
Hopefully you’ll find some time to listen and maybe get one or all of these on your channel some day.. 😉
P.S. I agree that Jeff Porcaro, especially technically, was one of the best drummers ever!
Hi ich wollte Mal Fragen welche fußmaschiene du hast (ist bestimmt falsch geschrieben). Also ich meine die doppelte falls du eine andere hast.
Hi Sina, Respekt für deinen Fleiß und deine Musik. Ich verfolge den Kanal auf Youtube schon länger und heute erfahre ich das du aus Deutschland kommst, krass 🙂
Grüße aus Willich.
Hi sina I follow you on YouTube and I think you are a great drummer. I grew up when these rock songs were being released amazing timing, I would love to hear you cover Berlin maybe mannequin or especially The Violent Femmes. I went to high school with Gordon gano the lead and song writer. Please check out their first album. 1983. Thanks for the videos, you make an old retired soldier happy.
HEY..SINA i have a song i from India i have conposed and played all instruments by myself..will u collaborate..
I started watching your videos on YouTube a while back and really enjoy what you do. I am really impressed that you take the old classic music , stuff that I grew up with and do your covers. Well done and keep at it. Is it at all possible that you could do a cover of Phil Collins- In the Air Tonight , sometime, would love to watch you doing that if it is not copyrighted. Mark from South Africa (one of your greatest fans).
Are you German ?
Hi Sina and lovely Milena,
Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust for life’ (Hunt Sales on dr.)
Blondie’s ‘Call me’ (Clem Burke on dr.)
Best wishes from Italy!
I was enjoying your video about Ringo and the groove he played to the song “My Life”. You mentioned his influence and ,being a cover drummer myself, thought about the Youngbloods song called “Get Together”. Wow! Do you think Ringo had some influence on that groove? LOL!! Thanks for your work! You are an inspiration!
Please play BTO – Let It Ride https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmSXIOlN6mY&list=RDJKYRjNAakVc&index=17
Love your work.
I realize you get many requests but I was wondering if you could give “Frankenstein” a try. It was done by the Edgar Winter Group in 1972. The song was on the album “They only come out at Night” and featured Chuck Ruff, their drummer. The song is different from most rock material in that it’s an instrumental piece. Best wishes in all that you are doing and plan to do!
Please more outdoor (and barefoot) drumming!
Please more Milena!
Please at least 1 David Bowie cover!
Please, please me…!
You’re really an astonishing player!
I wish you all the best for the future! You’ll save our planet, not Greta 😉
Been watching you for a while now. Lasses like you build a bridge between the older generation that grew up listening to the stuff you cover and the new.
I would live you to cover some Def Leppard. Particulary the song “Hysteria.”
Hi garage rock was big in Australia in the 80s and 90s Midnight oil was a very popular band with a number of top selling albums could you cover “only the strong” starts slow with heaps of fills.
Good to see you cover alot of different artists, thanks
Hi Sina! First allow me to say that I enjoy watching your videos. Your talent is truly remarkable. Have you by chance given Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush a listen? How about Wishbone Ash? 2 of my favorites! Best wishes and keep rocking!
What is your preferred grip and why?
die üblichen Komplimente an Sina bezüglich ihres Könnens, ihrer Musikwahl (all die Lieblingsstücke meiner Jugend) und der Energie die sie reinsteckt und der Spaßfaktor der dabei rauskommt ….. aber ich hab ne Frage : ich habe den USB Stick bestellt und heute bekommen.
Bisher habe ich unter USB Stick was anderes verstanden 🙂
Jetzt habe ich ein scheckkartenförmiges Etwas mit dem ich nix anfangen kann.
Was mach ich damit ?
Lieben Gruß aus HH
Ich nochmal. Danke, hat sich erledigt. Ich hatte schon versucht den Nippel aus der Lasche zu ziehen aber ein Freund hat mir eben gezeigt, dass man ihn rausklappen muss. Alles klar.
Do you plan to visit the US at? Maybe a tour??
Perhaps you remember a message I sent to you recently to which you quickly responded from your office email. My name is Stanley Hall and I identified myself as an Industrial Engineer specializing in attention to detail. To the best of my ability, I attempted to show my appreciation for your God-given talents. I mentioned the lyrics to “Little Drummer Boy” because you do your absolute best in what you do – just as he did in playing his drum for the Christ child. I have been and will continue praying for your unprecedented success. The “Heroes” drum recording; “No Treble No Bass”; “All Right Now”; and “Slow Ride” are recent evidence of successful excellence! Congratulations! Keep up the great work!
You have been an inspiration to me and I have the great opportunity to watch you via YouTube. To show my sincere appreciation for who you are and what you accomplish (and will accomplish), I would like to share something with you in which I have thoroughly researched; carefully rearranged; reformatted; and have rewritten a special project for over 15 years. Happily, it is now a completed work!
I plan to share this with many others in the future; however, I wanted to make it available to you, as a gift, and be one of the first to receive it. This writing may be used for inspiration; encouragement; contemplation; individual or group study; and as an educational resource. Because of its size, I have converted it to 4 PDF files that may be viewed and printed on demand. Sina, it would be my distinct honor and privilege for you to have them for your personal library and have access to them for many years to come.
Since I cannot link attachments on this particular site, I would need to send the 4 PDF files to your office email address. I will promptly send them to you should you give me your consent and approval to do so. Please let me know. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
How did you get so good at drums?
You are so good, I listened to many songs with you on the drums, like Dire Straits Sultans of swing, it’s amazing. SMoke on the water too, very enjoyable!
Maybe a delicate question: is your little sister actually taller than you?
My family name is Moninger, as in the Moninger Brewery there in Germany. I live in Florida, USA. I totally enjoy your talent and performances on YouTube. You are incredible! Thank you for what you do, and keep it up!
What brand of drum mics and mic mounts do you use on the Hallowed Be Thy Name video? They sound great !
I really enjoy your work. I hope you will do a video of “Vehicle” by Ides of March soon.
I came across your site and thank-you for an enjoyable evenings entertainment – with people actually playing instruments….Keep up the great work.
Hey Sina, I’d like to share something with you, personally. In 2016 I went through quite a bad break up that really torn me into pieces. The one thing that always helped was music. And during that time, I could feel every emotion I was feeling being expressed through the drums in those songs. That’s when the drumming bug started nibbling at me. Anyway, I happened to watch a movie called Whiplash – a definite must see for anyone appreciating drums – and that’s when I got sucked into everything. Without even noticing, I started tapping along to songs, pretending to play the hi-hats. But soon enough, it wasn’t enough just hearing the songs. I needed to see how it was played. My very first Google search brought up your Youtube page in the results. So I started watching you play drum covers, and haven’t stopped since. This was not just about seeing someone play the drums to my favourite songs, you (yes you) and the kit drove me to get a kit of my own. I’m only starting now, but I can only thank you for helping drive that desire. You are a true inspiration to others, you’re good, but you are PASSIONATE. Just keep going girl.
Hello Sina, Some where I read you discussing why some music was more popular than others. May throw out a phrase from long ago? ‘It has a good beat & is easy to dance to’
I enjoy your video’s very much & have both your alums. Rock On!
I’m a long time rocker going back well over 40 years and even though I don’t play the rock “circuit” here in the States any longer, I keep writing and recording, which is why I’m inquiring about how independent songwriters like me submit songs to you (and others) to re-record them, even possibly adding their own interpretations. All of my songs are finished arrangements/recordings.
Please let me know the process involved. Thanks
I’m also a well known fine artist and the link to that site is included as I don’t have a formal site set up for my music.
No tengo preguntas, solo felicitarte por tu talento, tu amor por la buena musica y desarte mucho éxito y bendiciones,…una vez mas !! Eres grandiosa !! Un abrazo, desde Puerto Ordaz – Venezuela
sina: i am from the states, and whenever i see you on you tube i click on and am always amazed at your playing, and all the stuff you do with your friends… keep it up… i have 1 request and not even sure if you will see this post.. one of my all time favorite drummers was neil peart of the band rush… we lost him in early january at the young age of 67 and was just wondering if you have ever thought about doing something by neil… thank you and like i say keep up the excellent work
Dear Sina: Not looking directly at the camera is a virtue that the best movie actresses have. It is also a characteristic of shyness, typical of the sweetest and most tender women that exist.
This is more of a statement than a question really , ” one day i have no doubt you Sina will be visiting a city not to far from me called Cleveland Ohio , ROCK AND ROLL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD , when they induct you into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame !!!!! ” , i wish you all the greatest of sucess !!!!!
Can you cover Ted Nugent’s Stranglehold?
I stumbled across your drum covers on YouTube and i have just one word to describe them. Amazing!!!!! I think so far I have watched ever single one of them. I saw that you did a couple of KISS covers, and wondering if you would do more? Also i was wondering if you ever thought about doing some Motley Crue covers. Keep up the amazing work and keep putting out new videos.
First, I want to tell you how incredibly impressed I am with the caliber of your drumming. It’s a joy to watch you play. Second, I want to let you know how much I appreciate your video on what made Ringo’s drumming great. I’m a huge Beatles fan and even saw their next-to-last concert at Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles) in 1966. I also saw Iron Butterfly at the Hollywood Bowl and Led Zeppelin’s first US tour. So, it goes without saying that I love all the music you play. Finally, I am interested in your thoughts on Carl Palmer’s drumming — especially his work while in Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I’ve always admired his technical skill and the way he often used the drums (as opposed to the cymbals & high hat) as musical instruments in their own right, precisely synchronizing with the melody (if that makes sense). Best wishes for continued success!
How long does it take you to learn a song? I have been watching a lot of your video’s and they look very complicated.
I like Isolde Lasoon
I appreciate your passion and reverence for classic rock and roll. I would love to hear your take on “The Song Remains the Same” and “D’yer Maker” from Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy”. Thanks for being an inspiration to young and old alike. Rock on!
I admire your talent and attitude to music.
I haen’t seen any Pink Floyd covers from you so far. Is it for copyright issues or you just don’t prefer to cover PF?
Any particular reason?
I really enjoy hearing and watching you playing drums. Love your selection of songs you cover. You are a very, very good drummer, on the brink of being great! I’m 73 years old with a heart disease. That really holds me back from doing things I love. Back in my teens and 20’s I played drums in a band with two other guys. Kindda like Grand Funk. I got caught up in drugs and alcohol which brought my drumming to an end. Watching you brings back so many good memories while I was playing. Keep on keeping on, girl. You’re going to go places in the music industry. I have a wish: Will you please smile more. You have a smile that radiates beauty. Even without the smile, you’re cute. 🙂
I love Your sense of humor 🙂 But isn’t it a common question: Do You answer to private messages on Instagram or FB? 😉 So, do You?:P
And by the way, who do You play music with every day?
How about a cover of Backstreet Luv by Curved Air Sina?
My almost 3yo son -Michael from Switzerland watches your videos every day since a year and half now. All he talks about is how he wants to learn to play the drums like you. Sometimes we give him drum sticks to play on pillows while he watches you and he tries to mimic . We think you inspired him to learn to play the drums! Instead of wanting to listen to lullabies we have to play Led Zeppelin and AC/DC 🙂 He might be your youngest fan and he would like to talk to you one day to ask you how to learn how to play like you .
that’s amazing!! Nothing wrong with growing up with AC/DC and Led Zeppelin :))
All the best!
Hi Sina, I enjoy your music and talent. I wanted to ask you–Do you like to wear red converse sneakers? I notice them alot in the videos I’ve watched. I lived in Heidelberg as a child (6-7) back in 1966-67, and I am also a real big Beatles fan. I also like fairy tales such as the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson. I grew up reading things like “Der Struwwelpeter.” I thought it would be really cool if you set that book to music in a form like a musical. The music could teach children good survival skills and manners. I saw Keith Moon with The Who in concert in 1976, and you do a great job covering his music. I have really grown fond of your talent and demeanor and wish you and your sister, Melina, luck in the future. Thanks, Brendan Kelsh.
WHAT SIZE CONVERSE DO YOU WEAR MAYBE I`LL BUY YOU SOME AND AUTOGRAPH THEM FOR YOU JUST LET ME KNOW SIZE AND COLOR.MAYBE!!
Size 10, basic black, low or high top; it doesn’t matter. I hope it’s signed by Sina. The one and only lovely Sina. She really rocks.
Sina, have you ever heard of the drummer Max Roach? He goes back a long ways and was very good at playing jazz and rhythm and blues. As a reporter for the local newspaper, I got a photograph of him playing the high hats. I believe you are a very well-rounded drummer and saw a video of you using brushes. That’s so cool!
Hi Sena, how many pairs of red converse tennis shoes have you got?
Hi Sina, do you like bratwurst?
can you I use for free your cover version of Something in a YouTube video made by me?
How do I get on the “Goddess Nike,” list?
Hi Sina I started Drumming 1 year ago I am 64. How long does it usually take u to learn a cover. You are very inspirational. Do u learn a cover by memorizing the actual sheet music or does a lot of it just come to u naturally after playing for so many years. Thanks Brooke
I’m just curious as to what drumsticks you use. Also, do you have a signature stick? I’d love to check out your sticks of choice.
I live in New Jersey and I’m sure you know what my request will be if possible. Any Bruce will be great!
How the Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen can play with one arm is incredible. Now that’s a challenge for you.
Told my son Matt to keep an eye out for you since he has lived in Germany for 3 years now and loves it. lol
Thank you so much for being you.
very cool drumming – to be followed..ZZ Top La Grange 1:14: the Break: RESPECT!!
First, the compliments: I love your drumwork and videos. Your dedication to getting it right is a testament to your passion for music, and is evidence that you also are very intelligent. You seem to be very level-headed and mature for your age, and I think the credit goes largely to your father for keeping you grounded – and focused. My question is: when did you begin learning English? Living in western Germany, I’m guessing German is your native language. And you don’t live far from The Netherlands, so maybe you know some Dutch, as well. I live in Michigan.
Ich bin (wie einige vor mir) durch Zufall auf deine Videos aufmerksam geworden und verfolge sie seitdem regelmäßig.
Ich spiele seid 18 Jahren (Yeah, wir sind endlich volljährig!) in einer Cover-Band (Rock-Metal-Klassiker) mit wechselnden Drummern (ich habe übrigens festgestellt, alle Drummer sind irgendwie ein wenig……..wahnsinnig……irre…..durchgeknallt?!….. aber auf eine sympathische Art und Weise…….egal, ich schweife ab)
Was ich eigentlich sagen wollte, ich finde es fantastisch, wie locker Du die wildesten Klamotten spielst, ohne dabei angestrengt zu wirken!
Ich wünsche Dir weiter alles Gute und, dass Du es schaffst mit deiner Leidenschaft deinen Lebensunterhalt bestreiten zu können. (Weil: Was kann es besseres geben!)
In diesem Sinne, keep on Rocking….!
P.S.: Grüße auch an Milena!
P.P.S.: Entschuldige bitte meine anstrengende Schreibweise mit den ganzen Klammern. (Ich kann einfach nicht anders)
Sina, I am a fan and a subscriber of your YouTube channel.
I am just visiting your site for the first time and it was awesome to learn that you like newer prog-rock. I love old-school prog (Genesis, Rush, Kansas, Yes, etc) classic rock, and metal, and my favorite prog rock during the last 25 years is anything by Neal Morse, especially Spock’s Beard. If you are familiar I would enjoy watching and listening to you cover one of those. Or if you are not familiar then I would be thrilled to know that I have introduced you to something new.
Thanks for all the great songs!
Hi Sina, would you cover inside out by Phil Collins or migration by Camel from one of your fans.
What’s your full name
Sina – what type of headphones do you use? I’m interested in preserving my hearing. Will any type work? Do you use one set for recording and a different set for practice? Thanks so much, you’re an inspiration!
Hi Sina, literally *just* discovered your channel/website and have to say, you’re doing marvelous work. I have a question/request for you: according to your bio/FAQ The Who is one of your favourite bands – how come you haven’t covered “A Quick One While He’s Away” in that case? Will you?
Maybe it is a good idea to sell performances of songs by a one time paying. Not here but in a video. How much would that cost? Or don’t you like the idea at all? I think it’s like a virtual gig 🙂
My problem is, that I like to play songs but at some songs I cannot even imagine how that sound is played. So i would like to listen and learn. I play just for me and nobody else.
Like to see a rendition of CRAZY TRAIN by Ozzy. Looks like you have a good guitarist up for the job.
(I used to play drums in the 1970’s. In-a-Godda-Da-Vida drum solo was one of my top favorties to play to with my set. So much energy at 17-18; not so much anymore.
Get a double BASS drum set. No – you do not need three (3) feet, but it helps……! Those 2 BASS pedals work good when doing a tom-tom solo.
Some drummers like a lot of cymbals, I never used that many. Just put 2 single drum sets together to make one. Had 2 BASS, 4 TOMS, 1 SNARE/tom (flip switch), Hi-Hat which my left foot alternated between left BASS , and 4 or 5 cymbals.
You are much better than I ever was. Also – interesting fact of me – I am German too. Frankfurt AM.
Looks like we were play the drums about the same time. Mine have been in storage over 30 years.
We also had a similar set up. 2 bass, 2 small tom’s, 2 floor toms, snare, high hat and 2 cymbals.
What I did … was to play my left base with the front of my left foot and the high hat with my left heel. So I had my left foot on both pedals at the same time. I could play one or the other or both at the same time. As to how well I played … well … I was never that good anyway so this bit of technique I wouldn’t think made any difference – and – it was the way I always played so I would have difficulty playing any differently.
Hello Sina, you play very good the drums. i play also for about 20 years but on a electric set because of the neighbors but I have a question :
do you use music with the drums or have you remove the drumtrack? and how you dit that?
You are a spectacular drummer – I ran into your video because I noticed the video you did as a tribute to Ringo Starr – I was an early teen-ager when the Beatles came out and I’m always a fan. I noticed somewhere in these faqs you mentioned that you began studying computer science – that really piqued my interest because I do a lot of advocating for K-12 students to get involved, particular females. Did you ever take some courses? Like so many other areas, there’s lots of computer science in the music industry. Thanks for many enjoyable hours listening to your covers of music from my earlier days.
What do you do with all your old drum sticks?
Hello Sina my 3 years old daughter has already started playing drums. She asks me to turn on your YouTube channel every day! She is your great fan and always says that you the best player! She loves you and she wishes she could be as good player as you are, and be as tall as you and had as long hair as you! She wanted you to know that.
If you would be ale to write to her just a couple of words I believe she was im seven heaven and motivated her to hard work ! All the best!
I’d love to hear you playing Pink Floyd – Time. I didn’t found it in your youtube channel.
ich bin durch Zufall auf Deine YouTube Videos gestoßen und war von Anfang an begeistert – sonst wäre ich wohl auch nicht hier gelandet 😉
Als (Hobby-) Keyboarder und ToTo Fan der ersten Stunde würde ich mich sehr über ein Sina-Cover von Home of the Brave freuen. Vielleicht kannst Du den Corona-Mist ja nutzen und eine prima Cover Version des Songs beisteuern – gerne mit den Orginal-Drums von Jeff (die Simon-Version ist auch klasse aber Jeff ist halt unerreicht). Child’s anthem, Hold the Line und Rosanna habe ich früher (bevor Du geboren wurdest) selber gecovert. Home of the Brave haben wir leider nie gespielt… Vielleicht hast Du ja Spaß an dem Stück…
Bleib gesund und mach unbedingt weiter so!
Gruß aus dem Nordwesten der Republik
ich wohn’ ganz in Deiner Nähe und könnt’ Dich ja mal besuchen. Dann machen wir ne jam-session – Du auf’m Schlagzeug und ich auf der Blockflöte…..
Ich bin auch durch Zufall auf Deine YouTube Videos gestoßen und war / bin begeistert – sonst wäre ich wohl auch nicht hier gelandet.
Als Fan von Journey im Allgemeinen und Steve Perry im Besonderen hat mir natürlich das all-time-greatest “Don’t stop believin” am besten gefallen.
Da mir aber auch die Eagles sehr am Herzen liegen, würde ich mich mächtig über ein “Take it easy” oder “Hotel California” freuen.
Denn Don Henley wusste wohl auch, wie man mit den sticks umzugeghen hat ……. 🙂
Hallo Sina, wie groß bist du? du siehst groß aus
As I understand, you parted ways with The Gäs. Would you please share the reason(s) with us?
One reason at least, I guess, you were fed up with defacto ultimate audience-darling image. No?
In any case, all the best in your endeavors…
You may want to reply in German, no problem for me. I put the question in EN just for convenience of int’l visitors. Thank you.
Hi Katip. Der Grund, bzw. die Gründe weshalb Sina die Band verlassen hat ist/sind naheliegend: Wie du vielleicht weißt, studiert Sina an der ArtEZ in Arnheim/NL Rock und Pop. Darüber hinaus studiert sie noch per Fernstudium Informatik. Dann kommen ihre ungezählten Aktivitäten und Projekte hinzu die sie teils alleine, teils in Kollaboration mit anderen Künstler*innen betreibt. Und, nicht zum Schluss, sondern ganz vorne an, hat sie auch noch ein privates Leben und einen Partner der ihrer Aufmerksamkeit bedarf. Dies alles hat Sina dazu bewogen die Band zu verlassen, da sie zeitlich einfach nicht mehr in der Lage war dort weiter regelmäßig zu spielen.
Was deine Meinung betrifft, dass sie ‘Publikumsliebling’ gewesen sei so mag das nur bedingt zutreffen. Ich habe nahezu alle Gigs von The Gäs live gesehen, quer durch Deutschland und kann sagen, dass alle Bandmitglieder ihre Fans hatten und haben! Es mag sein, dass Sina dadurch, dass sie nunmal eine (weibliche) Schlagzeugerin ist, etwas mehr an Attraktivität besaß. Ich habe die Ehre Sina persönlich zu kennen und kann sagen, dass sie absolut unprätentiös und bodenständig ist.
Und noch ein wenig Eigenwerbung: Solltest du es nicht wissen, ich habe von sehr vielen Gigs mit The Gäs Videos aufgenommen und (mit Genehmigung der Band) auf meinem YT-Kanal veröffentlicht –> hier:
Thanks, Yolanda Byerly for girls-got-groove.com
would you please do a cover of ( Poor Poor Pitiful Me ) , by warren zevon , linda rondstadt , or terri clark , thank you and god bless , sincerely harry
Sina, wahrscheinlich wurde dir die Frage schon mehrfach gestellt. Ich frage trotzdem. 😉
Ich habe deine Tutorials und eine Menge Videos jetzt rauf und runter geguckt und ich bilde mir ein, ein gutes Gedächtnis zu haben. Trotzdem, ich könnte mir niemals jeden einzelnen Beat von all den von dir gespielten Songs merken. Sicher, es ist reine Übungssache. Aber, hast du vielleicht sowas wie ein photografisches Gedächtnis? (grins)
I am 62, was never into musical instruments, except learning how to play a flute in elementary school. I like the Beatles, Boston and Supertramp. Started watching Roger Hodgson concerts on video. Loved how he plays the piano. I got to see Roger at a concert in Coarsegold, California, USA in July 2018. Got me a digital piano 3-4 years ago, at my age I think its more difficult to learn than when you are a young person. Love how you play the drums. I thought trying to get my fingers to move on both hands, let a lone in coordination was hard, but when I saw how a drummer uses both hands and both feet moving at different rhythms, I should be able to play a piano with my toes. My hat is off to you Sina, take care.
Greetings from Tennessee!
Even though I see you via Youtube every two weeks, I’m happy to know you are prioritizing your valuable time; your studies; your career; your personal life and your continuation of wonderful videos.
I so enjoy your collaborations with “up and coming” music artists. Their careers are beginning and you provide a platform to showcase their talents. Bravo! I know they appreciate the opportunity. Your videos offer a springboard to propel them further in their musical endeavors. By offering these unique opportunities you are practically demonstrating the Golden Rule of one of the teachings of Jesus – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” – Luke 6:31. Please continue this!
Every two weeks, I’m privileged to see the finished product. I know it requires much discipline; patience; humility; professional poise and coordination. Because of the quality of your productions, I also know for a fact that you possess all of these notable qualities and so many more. Thank you for your dedication and skills. May you continue to excel and succeed! That is my daily prayer for you.
Respectfully and sincerely,
Hi Sina. I just watched a documentary called, “Monterey Pop Festival, 40 years ago. I live in the San Francisco bay area so Monterey is like a hour south of me. Anyway, I forgot just how much this little festival (200000, so they say) have come to mean so much for the 60, 70, music. Remember, these were groups staying in flop houses, playing on the corner to anyone who would listen. Monterey, its a beautiful place. The weekend of the festival saw the like of Mama’s & Papa’s, Quick Silver, Eric Burden and the Animals, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills , Nash & Young, Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company. The high point was Saturday Night when Jefferson Airplane with Grace Slick took the stage… and we cant forget The Who. This is a documentary you would appreciate. You probably already seen it but if not, look it up at a library or HULU, I swear it’s worth the time. Well, I’m done selling Monterey Pop to you, but I thought of you first because of your background. Have your dad fill you in, I sure he’s seen it.
Gotta go now but had to get this off to you. Hope you check it out, it’s where our music came from. Be Well, God Bless
San Francisco Mike
One thing that comes across from these videos is your passion for drumming and music. I love watching you drum to the classics. One song that I think you would enjoy drumming to is “Last Chance” by Shooting Star. I understand that it might not be something that you can perform and post due to intellectual property rules and such. I look forward to hearing more covers and original music from you.
Cheers from St. Louis!
My name is Don and I must say you are a remarkable young lady and musician. I too started playing the drums at the tender age of 10 and now I’m 58 and slowing down a bit lol. My question is how do you get past the copyrights on the covers you play so well? I’m thinking of starting a cover channel but its the old dog new trick for me and YouTube.
Thnk you for excellent video you ar are one of the best drummers in my opinion what size are your 3 cymbals and your Hi-hat
I really admire your choice of music. So amazing and nice to see someone of your age love those classic rock songs. You know so many of them.
I really hope my comment reaches you for a request.
One of my most favourite songs with great drums is a live performance at Wacken by Nightwish.
Especially the song “Ghost Love Score” (a rockband from Finland/Dutch singer). I am pretty sure you would love that intro with drums.
From now i’ll check if you gonna perform somewhere, would be great to see you in a life performance with one of those great rockbands as a guest drummer, wouldn’t that be great?
Keep on going!
Hi Sina, I have been a fan of yours for two years, I saw in this year (2021) that you have the GIRLS-GOT-GROOVE site, and with this magnificent site I can write to you. I’m a drummer too (for now).
You are very good at playing drums, and your DRUM-KITS are always “WONDERFUL “. Every day I watch if you send new videos on YOU TUBE (maybe I’m a bit too “exaggerated” to see every day if you send new videos ) .
Today I watched your video ( Neytiri Original By Sina) and it’s wonderful!!! .
Elena V. from Italy…
Ps: i write from my mum’s E-MAIL…
hey sina hope you are doing just want you know that I’m still a big fan, not letting go of my dream of meeting you, been 4 years and I still want to marry you wish you the best love steven
Why did Sina start drumming with her left hand that way
deine Videos sind großartig, manche besser als die Originale. Respekt! Machst du auch live Gigs?
Hi, Could you sign a couple of CDs for me when I buy them please
Hello Sina, there’s a song called Silent Lucidity by Queensryche and the drums are very good. It would be great to hear it played by you or even the song played without lyrics and you playing the drums. Please keep playing as I’m a huge fan. Stay beautiful and please stay safe.
I’m sure you heard that Charlie Watts died today, age 80.
Will you be doing a cover of some one or two Rolling Stones works with your favorite drumming? I hope so.
Hi Sina, I think you should cover at least one of those : Inside Out by Phil Collins, Sat In Your Lap by Kate Bush, Blonde Over Blue by Billy Joel or Migration By Camel. Please cover at least one of them!!! You are one of the best drummers on the face on the Earth!!!
Hello from Sweden, you wonder artist as performer and producer!
I love to follow your collabs, especially Chiara and just the recent study mate from Arnheim classes, Ida? No but almost that name! You really rock! Ahhh the beatles song Michel from you two-girl-band, so funny and well performed too!!
My humble question about experience of electric drums…. (I know you must walk around them like the cat around cold water, but I am sure you hear and can filter out what is relevant facts)
My two teens take weekly drummer classes on real drum kits and they improve indeed! As we live tight to neighbours we only have a so called “digital drum set” and it is a cheap start-kit. I am into at least find a better still not acoustic one, but at least with proper headings as good as possible, so they get the real (studs we say in Swedish, the bounce) feeling .
Soooo…. Any do’s and dont’s from your side of what to recommend me in my hunt for the real feeling?
And you do play in the RockTheOpera in Stockholm on the 6th of November right? Mauno as well?
Hello Sina My Name Is Fritz Couwels I Find Your Drum Music Very Very Beautiful And You Are So Very Very Beautiful Girl Can You Making A Very Long Drum Solo Video For Me Please And Uploading On Your YouTube Channel Please

Hello Sina Goodevening My Name Is Fritz Couwels I Find Your Drum Music Very Very Beautiful And You Are So Very Very Beautiful Girl Can You Making A Very Long Drum Solo Video For Me Please And Uploading On Your YouTube Channel Please
Sina. I have just heard thr Lovac Brothers singing Shipwrecked and loved it. I can find no more music or albums by them. Any suggestions?
I am a great musician, singer and songwriter.
I have a great idea for a spectacular piece of art and I have a collaboration offer to you.
How can I contact you?
Here’s a request you’ll doubtful ever acknowledge or respond to, mostly because I know you’re super busy, but I’d like you to do a collaboration with the very same people you did ‘Engel’ with, and do ‘Du Hast.’ If you cannot do it with exactly the same people then don’t bother because it won’t be as good. That collaboration you did on Engel is not only the best collaboration you’ve done, it’s also the best Rammstein cover that anyone has ever done; and not only that, it’s the best cover anyone has ever done of any song, of any song, ever in history to my knowlege — in my humble opinion. If you can get those guys to all work together again and do Du Hast, I am confident it would be amazing.
I don’t know much about drumming, but I think you are a great drummer.
I have a different question to ask you? How long do you plan to grow out your beautiful thick
hair? If you wish to answer this question…thank you very much!
Hi Sina, I am 54 years old and began to play drums about 3 months ago. I am sure a lot of your success is a result of hard work and practise and not “just talent”. Can you share what you think made you become such an excellent drummer? Any advice for newbies like me based on your experience?
Thanks a lot and all the best! Rudi
I find it fascinating to watch when you talk about the drums in your videos. I do not play an instrument, although when I was a kid I attempted to learn guitar but unfortunately never carried through with it. To learn to play the drums, to me, sounds mind boggling! There are so many facets of playing , it must be the hardest instrument to master or at least right up there with the hardest! I think too, that a person naturally, like yourself, is born with some musical instinct. Were you always comfortable physically, with keeping the rhythm of a song, or was it something you had to get used too? To see you play, you look quite natural . It certainly helped I would think that you had music in your family. I very much look forward to future videos, thank you!
Na twojej stronie w zakładce Sina on Tour jest informacja że być może przyjedziesz do Polski. Jakie są szanse na zobaczenie Cię w Polsce.
I’m 68 years old. I want to play the drums! Is it too late for me?
Of course, I need a decent drum set…what do you recommend?
Thank you very much, Sina!
I saw that you play at Artez Arnhem in a recent performance. I am applying there for Jazz&Pop voice and I am looking for a drummer and pianist that can accompany me with 3 audition song videos. Do you happen to know any other drummers there that have the time to help me?
Thanks for reading this!
Would it be possible for you to do ‘My Oh My’ from Slade? That is my second most favorite song from them behind ‘Run Runaway’
I’ve been telling many friends about you, including some that are drummers. Their response has been mostly ‘WOW’.
Keep the beat!
Hi Sina, you are an incredibly talented drummer and I love checking out your YouTube channel. That you cover a lot of classic rock songs is fantastic! That’s music from my era that I grew up with, and you are spot-on in every one of your covers.
I saw that you cover a lot of Queen songs, but I haven’t seen my favorite yet. I guess it’s a little obscure, as it’s one of their earlier songs called “Keep Yourself Alive”. It was the very first song by Queen that I ever heard, and I LOVED the sounds! The guitars, Freddie’s vocals, and of course the drums. If you get a chance to check it out, there’s a pretty cool drum solo at 2:20 on the Queen Official Video on YouTube. Since I don’t play the drums, I don’t know how difficult it would be, but I have no doubt you could definitely handle it.
I do hope you’ll give it a listen and see what you think. I’d love to hear you eventually do a cover of it. Have a wonderful day!
I just saw your Ringo video. Absolutely brilliant! You did such a great job of demonstrating his (and your) musicality and uniqueness. Do you know if Ringo ever saw the video? Has he made contact or, even better, did you ever meet? He seems like such a nice guy.
I loved the covers, too: keeping the emotional content and intent of the originals while adding an originals layer of your own.
I will definitely check out more of your videos, especially your own music. Thank you.
. Was mich (als Nichtmusiker) interessieren würde: Gibt es eine bestimmte Reihenfolge, in welcher die Parts der Musiker bzw. die Tonspuren aufgenommen werden ? Also: Spielt Sina erst den Drumpart ein, dann den Bass etc. oder ist das je nach Stück und Video unterschiedlich ?
Would you ever consider a collaboration using a country-rock and/or folk-rock musicians. I have about 20 to 30 rhythm tracks on guitar. I could easily add the drums myself to it (I’ve been playing drums since 1965 sporadically) or have someone else do the drums. I need help with the lead guitar parts and I have a melody for each track in my head but don’t know enough about music to write it down. Some of the music has a 1960s to 1970s feel to it. I know you are very busy and don’t have time for all types of music, but I thought I would give it a try. Mike
Congratulations on passing your recent exams, best of luck on the ones to come!!
I so enjoyed your playing in the Art Of The Trio. Along with Rock I also love Jazz. As I have said before, it is such a treat to see what you do at University. You are kind enough to let us in on your studies and playing with your fellow students. It totally makes my day!
Thank you and take good care,
I just discovered you today. I am so so happy that I did. I am from Hawaii. I hope you can visit one day and perform here in the islands. I love everything about you. Your drumming, family, music, stories, personality etc… You are so kind and beautiful inside and out. Well, nuff said hahaha
You have good taste in music. I too enjoy Toto, Beatles but one of my favorite bands is the Police. Do you like the drummer?
Now I’m not using social media it’s very difficult to give you feedback. It took me an absolute age to find this Comments page.
When I originally bought Chi Might I was dismayed by your “She” interpretation of that English pronunciation of Chi. The interpretation is clever but that English pronunciation is spurious. I personally have also heard it pronounced “Chai”, as in Japanese tea, which is also wrong.
The people who come out with this nonsense are part of the “Okay yaa!” cravat-wearing wine bar crowd who, quite frankly, do not live in the real world.
The only correct pronunciation of Chi is “Chi” with a hard Tch and a sharp i. Accept no substitutes, etc.
You say Chi Might III concludes the series. I sincerely hope you’ll continue issuing albums of original work. Still loving your stuff as much as ever!
I’ve been wondering whether, like Carl Palmer, you continue to take lessons, ever expanding your percussive prowess.
I’m just an old man from America who has been writing music for quite some time, I play a little of everything, a true Jack of all trades but master of none. I have been watching your videos for years and your passion and talent always makes my day. I know your parents have to be extremely proud! If you ever need material, it would be my pleasure to send some your way, your drums could only make it better and at my age I am more than happy to sit back and let you take the wheel. 🙂
Just got hold of Chi Might III. Definitely the best of the set. The sound is perfect. You and your friends have really nailed it. Shame there’s not more to come.
Hope you’ll consider a project making new music in the studio with all participants present.
Why are your comments turned off on Your YouTube videos I’m a big fan I just wonder
I’d like to see one day your cover of ELP.
salut ma belle Sina !
moi je suis un autiste et je l’habite au québec. toi t’as l’air gentille, t’es vraiment jolie, t’a des beau cheveux long et tu porte souvent ton camisole. pis.. t’a pas vu ça sur YouTube ? moi j’ai regardé plusieurs vidéos sur ta chaîne !… et est-ce que je peux me venir avec toi pour te séduire et s’embrasser s’il vous plaît ?
Hallo Sina, ich bin im zarten Alter von 53 Jahren nochmal dem Drum Virus verfallen und versuche nun seit 6 Jahren mir die Songs meiner Jugend draufzuschaffen. Deep Purple, Yes, Jethro Tull etc…..Vielleicht hättest du ja mal Lust dich Cross eyed Mary von Jethro Tull mit, laut John Bonham ‘best drummer England ever produced’ Barriemore Barlow zu widmen, als Tutorial selbstverständlich. Würde mich freuen !
Is there a (merch site) calendar, etc this year?
Das Cover von Short People ist klasse!
Hi Sina (and family, friends and fans of course). I’ve been listening/watching your videos for a couple years now. I don’t see anyone that’s asked this so what was the most challenging song you’ve covered?
You’ve done a couple of my top 5 favorites of the past 54 years (my age lol) which were Foreplay/Long time – Boston and Inna Gadda Da Vida however (comma) the version you know of that song is different than the one I grew up with and I was thrown off several times. As I hear it, they just kinda made it up when they played it so that’s to be expected. Is there a chance you’d manage to cover that one again if I bounced my Patreon membership up to God level? Or just for the fun of it lol.
I’m an amateur autograph collector. Would love to be able to send you 2 custom cards, with postage back to the US, in hopes you’d sign for me. Please and thank you.
I’ve receive a Youtube invitation to telegram from you (related with Inmigrant Song).
I know they are not you.
The user is @The_SinaDrums.
I’ve read your comments about your situation with this.
They are asking some personal information from me and from you.
If you need more information, please contact me.
Health and Rock&Roll.
I heard Green Eyed Lady today and would love to hear you cover it.
Hi Sina, i would like to learn to do drum covers just for fun, not to post anywhere. What equipment do i need in order to hear my drums while playing with music? I do have vic firth headphones, but its a bit hard to hear some of my drums as the sound isolation is very good on those headphones. Any ideas?
I really enjoy your covers, some tracks you do are virtually perfect !!
Apparently Sina no longer responds to these questions anymore, thats sad! We will miss her.
