Dillon Harrison: Young Drummer of the Year Finalist

SKF NOTE: I found Dillon Harrison YouTube drum videos starting when he was 8-years old. This is the only one I’ve seen with Dillion on electric drums, and on a 4-piece kit. He’s making good progress. Still playing lots of notes, but fewer than when he was younger. He plays with confidence, and his time is good.

A talented young musician has reached the finals of a prestigious drumming competition.

Dillon Harrison, 12, will go head to head with nine other competitors in the Young Drummer of the Year finals in February.

He beat more than 300 other entrants to win a place in the first shortlist of 40, which was then whittled down to the final ten.

The North Halifax Grammar School pupil began drumming when he was just six years old and now attends the Halifax Drum School, Crossley Street.

The competition…is a chance to give the country’s young drumming talent a national and international platform to kickstart their musical career.

Martin Davis, head tutor at the Halifax Drum School, added: “I’m so proud of Dillon, he really deserves it.
