Huw Charles-Walsh

  • B.A. Music (Jazz Performance) (Melbourne Conservatorium of Music)

Hi everyone! I’m Huw, a drummer of 13 years and an educator for 4.
I love music, I love to play the drums, and I love showing my students how easy it is to pick up a new instrument and start a journey of self development through incorporating music into their lives.

During the last 4 years of teaching full time, I have helped people of all ages and walks of life to start playing the drums and navigate the process of learning a new instrument. I have taken students of mine from their very first lesson to completing AMEB courses all the way up to 4th grade, and helped others be accepted into Monash and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.

After I had completed my B.A. of Music from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and studied privately for a year with internationally renown drummer Rick Dior in the US, I accumulated a broad understanding of the available texts, methods and syllabuses, new and old, that have been used to teach many of the great drummers of past and present, all around the world. This means I am able to cater my lessons to the individual goals of the student. I can help you develop beautiful and flowing technique that makes playing the drums effortless and satisfying, teach you to play with good feel and keep a solid rhythm, and give you all the right things to practice so that you don’t spend any time expending energy and effort to no avail.

Above all however, the most satisfying part of teaching for me is seeing my students enjoy themselves and have fun. As the last two years have shown for us, having activities to do that bring you joy are invaluable and worth cultivating as an investment in a rich and meaningful life.

Please check out two videos that I have recently uploaded to my YouTube channel if you would like to see my teaching in action, and maybe even start your drumming journey from there. As there is no hyperlink, you can copy and paste this link into your browser.
