Diploma of Popular Music and Performance (JMC Academy)
I am passionate about all things music, but especially drums; and am constantly trying to extend my understanding and knowledge of the craft. I believe that being a musical and versatile drummer is essential for success in todays industry and therefore promote this.
I have been teaching drums since 2008. I began drumming in 1999. Throughout primary and high school I was heavily involved in all music programs offered, playing in school musicals, stage bands, individual bands, music enrichment programs etc.
After completing the HSC (2007) I studied for a year and a half at JMC Academy (Sydney Campus) and completed my Diploma of Popular Music and Performance, majoring in drumming. Here I was taught by well respected drum tutor Clinton Harn.
These past several years I have been constantly playing and gigging and have drummed at various festivals and venues, some of which include: – Parklife 2009 with Aeons (www.myspace.com/aeonssounds) (supporting Empire of the Sun, La Roux, MSTRKRFT, Art Vs Science and many more) – The Metro Theatre with LTD (www.myspace.com/thebandltd) – Spectrum, Candys Apartment, World Bar, QBar etc.
I currently drum as a part of the Sydney chill-pop duo ‘Hannah and Josh’ (facebook.com/hannahandjosh) playing venues all over Sydney including the Gaelic Theatre, Little Av Bar, The Old Manly Boatshed etc. And currently drum for Family Life Ministries Church and Youth Band.
