DRUM LESSONS WITH A DIFFERENCE
I am a multi-instrumentalist; drum-kit, electric/acoustic guitar, keyboard, vocals, harmonica, ukulele etc.. I will often pick up a guitar so students can play along to their favourite songs at their own pace.

There are TWO drum-kits in my studio which allows the student and i to play side by side.

HAVE FUN
Above all, I want my students to enjoy what they are doing. Students may request the songs that they would like to learn. Any technical and theoretical studies are taught through the prism of the student’s song choice. This makes learning more relatable and fun. This is often a great introduction for younger students.

YEAR 12 DRUMS
I am able to help drum students through their Year 12 drum-kit music program, whether it be group or solo performance. This past year, a year 12 student of mine acheived a score of 44.

FIRST LESSON FREE
This acts as a meet-and-greet session and trial lesson. During this lesson, I asses the student’s goals and aims and then gear my lessons towards each student’s individual needs. To make them feel more at-ease, younger students may have their parent/guardian present during the meet-and-greet session.

HISTORY AND PRESENT
15 years playing experience and 10+ years teaching experience with children and adults of all ages. Very experienced with children (working with children check certified; willing to provide references). My students range in age from 5 to 50+.

Have rehearsed, written songs, toured, recorded internationally and nationally with rock/blues/soul bands. Currently performing regularly with blues and rock bands.

THE STUDIO
My teaching studio is located in Caulfield North, 5 minutes walk from Malvern station and 1 minute walk to the 16 and 64 tram routes. Heating and air-conditioning for year-round comfort.
