Seven years ago, we featured 6-year-old drumming prodigy Avery Molek, shredding Van Halen’s ‘Hot For Teacher’, which helped it go viral – racking up over four million views on YouTube and received well over 100,000 ‘Likes’ on VHND.com and our Facebook page!
Today, Avery, now 13-years-old, has covered “Hot For Teacher” again.
“When I was 6 years old my “Hot For Teacher” viral video gave me so many amazing opportunities. National television appearances and performing in front of 18,000 people with Brad Paisley. Over the years I have covered this song numerous times with multiple musicians at many venues.
“Now recording this song again 7 years later, shows me how far I have come and how hard work pays off.”
Watch both videos below. How do you think Avery has progressed?
