Van Halen – Hot For Teacher / Mia Morris 13-years old / Nashville Drummer, Musician, Songwriter

Instagram -- So here it is, my attempt at Hot For Teacher. There are quite a few people that have taken on this song and even some that have done more than one version. I knew I wanted to try it after I got my double kick pedals for Christmas and it certainly provided plenty of things to practice. The intro is obviously the part that most people think of and it required me to get a lot faster with my herta rudiments but even the fills out of the breaks are uncommon ideas. I enjoyed the challenge, got better along the way and I hope you enjoy this classic Van Halen anthem.I’m 13 years old and I want to be a drummer when I grow up. I think drummers are cool but I'm a huge fan of girl drummers / female drummers. There are some super good ones on YouTube that I'd love to be as good as one day. I thought it would help me keep focused if I started a drum series where I learned a new song every couple of weeks. Hopefully, I will keep doing it and keep getting better.

This drum intro always reminds me of a cammed racing engine, they have a very distinct lope or choppy idle to them, not sure if that was the effect they were trying to achive,, but it works u pretty much nailed it :)
Mike Boyd

Mike Rondeau
You're freaking awesome, keep it up! Great timing!!!

Nick Jaramillo
I have to say as a singer musician myself I'm a singer yeah I can get some drum beats myself but nothing like what you're able to do with that song you didn't quite perfect actually I would say it was like I mean right to it tee, seriously I'm not just saying that it was right to Atty I mean if if Alex wasn't drumming,? You could feel in like if you had to fill in? You could fill in very easily and you did a fine job 10 out of 10 easily I mean maybe even hire?, but for real I mean it was simply amazing you got a lot of talent you should be proud and just don't let it go to your head, LOL I'm just joking maybe when your eight or nine years old maybe your dad and parents listen to that but but yes I mean you are right on target the timing everything so it would take a bit to learn that and it's obvious that you're not new, I would estimate you probably have had 12 13 years and maybe you're like 20 to 22 years old and you've been playing since I was 7 years old or whatever at that time you didn't know about what you're doing but you got better as yours. On and you were determined that's obvious
Nico Montinola
Hey cutie that was superb! I wish i could play like that
Professor Time
MY WIFE: What are you doing???\nME: Watching this girl drummer.\nWIFE: No you're not. You're enjoying illegal fantasies.\nBUSTED AGAIN.
Ralphy Mendiola

Rebecca Stout
Oh man, how I would love to hear you place this on a real set. Maybe not Lugwig, but the tintier Pearl sets.
Rhonda Martin

Richard Neuzil
That is totally make it look the Zep cover you mentioned playing at a fast time to warm/up strengthen your legs.......reminds me of distance running training. Except I do not think you will blow out your knees after 19 I did
Rick Schuman

Chris Hansen is about to come a knocking to some of you commenting on this.
Vincent M
You must have worked on that for hours and hours. You sounded great and that double bass drum foot coordination was amazing. If you have not already try listening to guys like Elvin Jones and Alfonse Mouzon who is my cousin. Elvin in particular can play polyrythyms and more difficult time signatures than rock and roll 4/4 time. Rock requires a high energy and stamina but jazz requires playing outside the box and more musically. Great job young lady!
White Ninja
From one drummer to another: Your energy, enthusiasm, timing and coordination are remarkable. Even if you were 18, to accomplish this song with the tools you have in front of you is pretty profound. Wishing you success in future endeavors.
sorry Alex , its like this , we got a new drummer and well.........
A hard song right up there with John Bonham stuff. your feet and your hands have to do things that are completely independent of one another ! unlike any other song, you're right Mia the song is a beast !
This chick is rad!
Perfect, flawless, stunning!!!
dan sloan
Anybody thinking what I'm thinking???😈😈😈😈😈

While really great on the drums, watching her play makes me appreciate the skills of Alex Van Halen much, much more than I previously did.

If she's this good at thirteen by the time she graduates high school she will have been banned from local drum competitions for being too good
