Students 18+ to Mature ONLY

I am a mature musician with more than 40 years experience as a professional player & teacher.

Having been trained in contemporary, rock, brass band, & orchestral styles, have played with many top musicians in Perth, and have backed both WA and Eastern States artists.

As well as being an accomplished drummer, I have been a singer-guitarist in duos, trios & bands for many years,

I have played drums and guitar (including vocals) professionally in; Pop, Rock, Swing/Jazz, and Country bands in and around Perth since I was 15 yrs old.

I teach most contemporary modern styles including; rock, pop, blues, & 'cruisy'.

Note: I do not teach; thrash, metal, grunge etc, or classical.

I have been involved in numerous recording sessions for both private and commercial clients.

I have my own private studio for teaching, rehearsing & recording.

Adults/Mature age students are my specialty.

I use the Trinity Guildhall / Rock & Pop method of teaching / examining both drums & guitar for the appropriate student. And/or combined with an approach relevant to student needs and musical preferences.

While musical theory, and the ability to read music is important, it is not always necessary to enjoy playing.

Lesson duration is 30, 45, 60 mins, Standard rate is $1 / min.
