Drums Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate

The lesson structure can be flexible based on what we are feeling on any certain day!

However the ideal lesson would start with a warm up of rudiments as these are the essential building blocks to excel in drumming. We would then move on to learning a new beat, or groove through the reading of notation to improve their reading. And at the end we will take a song a listen by ear and learn it to improve their critical listening skills. I also value the input of my students and if they want to learn something in particular i will always accomodate gladly!

I feel that my many years of practical experience from playing to thousands of people overseas, and at home, to recording in professional studios will translate to teaching my students both mental and physical habits to excel if they want to be in bands and make music of their own

Hi there!

My musical journey started when i was 13, picking up guitar and (at the time, reluctantly) drums. Fast forward 14 years later and they're my favourite things ever! My experience playing drums in bands (Crocodylus, Supersoakerr) have taken me all over Australia and overseas, playing headline shows, and festivals.

I now want to take what I've learned being a constantly gigging drummer and craft engaging lessons for my students, with a mix of essential knowledge and practical ways to improve and enjoy your time behind the kit. I believe music and the making of music to be a state of flow, and to have creative flow you need play, fun, and relaxation! We will be learning to read drum notation as well as refining our listening skills to be able to learn your favourite songs by ear. All in all i aim to provide a relaxed environment where we can grow musically and connect with what matters most: Creativity!
