DRUM KIT – tuition, performance, session.
I am a 27 year old male who has been playing drums for 17 years. I have studied under 5 professional musicians, was a member of the Southern Schools Performing Ensemble for 4 years, received a scholarship to the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music in 2005, attended WHSPA, and Wollongong West TAFE where I received my Cert IV in Music Composition in 2008.
I recently completed my undergrad degree in Music Performance (Contemporary) at the prestigeous WA Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in Mt Lawley, Perth and am performing around Perth between a number of professional bands.
I’m currently teaching three afternoons a week at Kalamunda Music Academy, 2 afternoons at Sound Centre Morley and 1 day a week at St Helena’s College in Ellenbrook.
Previous clients include The Music Bus (casually taught drums, guitar and keyboard at NSW public schools), St Mary’s Star of the Sea College (Drum Tutor), Corpus Christi Catcholic high School (Drum Tutor), and over 40 privately taught drum students.
I have performed at venues from Coolum (QLD) to the famous Esplanade Hotel in Melbourne (VIC), and supported such artists as Dragon, The Whitlams, Guttermouth, NOFX, Illy, Phrase, GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), The Herd and Bliss N Eso to name a few.
