Bmus graduate with extensive touring, recording and performance experience both nationally and internationally available for drum lessons to any age, based in southern Sydney

Methodology

I like to keep things casual and fun, while maintaining focus and sparking inspiration. I value this highly as it will keep the student passionate in exploring the magic of music for a lifetime. A typical lesson will start with a short warm up/theory workout and then move onto detailed personalised study of technique and repertoire, but is open to flow to other related content with the student's exploration.

Background

I have been drawn to drums as long as I can remember, turning that passion into a career once graduating from the Australian Institute of Music, Sydney with a Bachelor of Music (Contemporary Performance). Since then I have had the opportunity to progress from shows around Sydney and interstate, to now having extensive national and international experience in both touring and recording.

It is with great pleasure that I get to share my knowledge and love of music with those that I teach, in which I have been lucky enough to do with many students of varying age groups for the past three and a half years. My main objective in teaching is to pass on not only a high understanding of musical concepts and facility on the drums, but also a deep enthusiasm for music to fuel the students' future, being described as 'infectious' by past student's and their families.
