General Details

Bachelor of Music Performance (Victorian College of the Arts)

I’m a drum kit teacher with over 10 years of experience, teaching all ages and levels. In 2013, I completed a Bachelor of Music Performance at The Victorian College of the Arts, in which I undertook private lessons with some of Australia’s most renowned drummers, including Simon Barker, Graham Morgan and Dave Beck.

I’ve performed extensively around Melbourne with various ensembles, such as Jaala, Josh Kelly Trio, On Diamond, Maria Moles & Adam Halliwell and Francis Plagne. I also perform a solo show under the name of ‘Mondo Flockard’, using electronics and drum kit. In my short time performing solo, I have played shows supporting Chris Corsano (Bjork, Evan Parker) and Clever Austin (Hiatus Kiayote). In June 2017 I performed a solo live score to Ben Christensen’s 1922 silent film ‘Haxan’ as part of Dark Mofo (TAS).

In 2017, I performed at Melba Hall as part of ‘Stand By Your Woman’, a showcase starring a 14-piece all female backing band which featured guest vocalists Harry Angus (The Cat Empire), Kate Miller Hiedke, Jen Cloher, Tim Rogers and more renowned Australian artists.

My duo with guitarist Adam Halliwell has toured Japan, Italy, Germany, and France. The duo has collaborated with Sicilian Improvisers Orchestra and Yoshitake Expe (JAPAN), along with members of ‘Boredoms’.
Other artists/bands that I have collaborated with include Harry Angus (The Cat Empire), Krakatau, Tanzer, Lucas Abela, Lloyd Honeybrook, Ogopogo, Ella Hooper, Kate Ceberano, Montaigne and Vera Blue.
