Lessons available at two inner-city Brisbane locations:
1. Just Percussion - Qld's home of drumming and percussion
2. Indigo Soul Wellness - (concealed information)


*Weekly, fortnightly or occasional lessons are available depending on your schedule and the amount of time you’d like to digest the content of each lesson.

Locky is a fantastic teacher that just knows what level you're at and meets you there! He makes me feel comfortable asking questions and I feel supported in my learning because he adjusts material to my speed. Lessons are fun and I feel energised to spend time on my handpan after every one!
