Bachelor of Contemporary Music
I’ve been playing drums for over 22 years, and teaching for the last 14 of those. Graduated from Southern Cross Uni (B. Mus) in 2001, moved to Melbourne shortly thereafter.
Bands I’ve been the drummer for:
-Twelve Tone Diamonds
-Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes
Who I currently play for:
I’m across all styles – grew up on metal, then went to jazz school, came to Melbourne and have since played a lot of pop/rock, some jazz stuff (mainly progressive/‘fusion’ styles) etc – more recently doing a lot of corporate gigs which involve sight reading. And practising ‘gospel’ chops, haha
I’m not really teaching much at the moment, kind of taken a break – but if you’re serious about drums and want some new ideas with regards to technique, phrasing, rudiments, odd time signatures, etc… Send me an email. Probably just do one lesson to start, and we can go from there.
BUT... Ya gotta be able to play the drums!!! Unfortunately, no beginners lessons, sorry (did I mention I was taking a break from teaching?)
And only lessons at my own studio, not doing house calls. Cheers, Arron.
