Hi, my name is Matt Rowbottom and I taught drums and percussion in and around Melbourne for many years. I directed the Australian Youth Band Drumline, was the drummer for the Choir of Hard Knocks, and performed in various other musical groups.
In December 2000, I built the first version of Music Teachers Online. It was a small searchable database to help promote local music teachers. Since then the website has been revised a number of times to accommodate the growing number of music teachers and music schools wishing to promote themselves online.
The website now has 11132 members and receives approximately 40,000 visitors each month.
If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the website, please drop me a line at
