Domino Santantonio “Don’t Start Now” Drum Playthrough

Domino Santantonio  /  UPDATED Aug 19, 2022

Domino Santantonio is a pop drummer (and DrumeoCOACH) whose earliest influences – like Travis Barker – inspired her to take songs that were lacking acoustic drums and turn them into awesome rhythmic performances. The role of drums in popular music has changed over the years, and drummers have had to adapt to artificially-produced electronic beats taking the spotlight.

Playing pop songs on drums has let Domino connect with millions, especially since her energetic covers went viral on TikTok in 2020. People might know and love the song, but never thought about playing acoustic drums with it. Don’t push pop music away: use it as a challenge to test your creativity and have fun doing it!

Watch Domino play “Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa, and get inspired to create your own covers and share them with the world.

Domino Santantonio is a professional touring and studio drummer who was known for her work with Quebec artist Roxane Bruneau until she became a viral sensation on TikTok (1.5 million followers). Domino is also the host and coach of the breakthrough Drumeo workout program, 30-Day Drummer.
