I've played drums for Rhianna, Lionel Richie, Ricky Martin, Chris Brown, Kimbra and Vernon Reid (Living Colour). I'm giving away a copy of my Drumming DVD 'Unique Beats' to every student that signs up for a 30 minute (or longer) lesson during the month of April.
I was ranked one of the 'Top 20 Millinium players' by 'Drumscene magazine.
I have appreared in 'Modern Drummer' (U.S.A), Rhythm (U.K), Percussion (Italy) and 'Newsbeat (Canada) magaizes.
One of my biggest acheivements was performing with Australia's number 1 artist Vanessa Amorossi at the 'Grand Final' in front of 100,000 people. Also sharing the bill with 'Men at Work' and 'INXS'.
I have taught drums for 21 years! My style is relaxed and I can quickly identify how a student learns. I have taught students with Autism, ADHD and Asperger.
I have taught at high schools throughout Australia for over 2 decades. I have given drum clinics for the 'Roland' corporation, Sabian cymbals, Tama drums and Vic Firth sticks.
I pride myself on being a great communicator and being able to teach what's inside my head to students of all ages and all levels quickly.
I can teach someone who has never played drums before a basic beat in their first 30 minute lesson.
I teach beginners to professionals. I cover hand and foot technique, timing, reading music and how to make a beat really 'groove'.
I also like to teach 'transcribing', where we listen to a song and work out the beats.
I believe there are several fundamentals to learning drums weather you play rock, funk, pop, hip hop or jazz.
