11-year-old A. R. Pritish has broken the record for the most drumbeats in a minute using drumsticks – 2,370 i.e. almost 40 beats per second.
Sydney-based Pitish started playing drums at the age of five and completed the highest grade exam in the Trinity College of London, Grade 8, for drums in 2020.
In 2021, he created a Guinness World Record for the title “Most drumbeats in a minute using drumsticks” by playing 2,370 beats in a minute.
Pritish is Year 6 student of St Francis Catholic College, Edmondson Park.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, with the support of his family, Pritish continued his music learning journey uninterrupted online.
The previous record of 2,109 drumbeats in a minute was set by Siddharth Nagarajan (India) in 2017.
The drumbeats are measured using a drumomoter and also recorded using a pressure sensitive microphone.
This is counted by experienced technicians and sound engineers who corroborate the drumometer’s reading.
