Instruments: Drums

I’ve been playing drums for over 20 years and have been taught by some of Perth’s best, including Ric Eastman who is the head drum tutor at WAAPA. I’ve had plenty experience with drumming in a studio and live environment. In the studio I have recorded several albums with my band Ragdoll and also worked on a number of sessions including the latest single for ‘Real House Wife of Melbourne’ Gamble Breaux.  In terms of live performance I have been on tour with my band Ragdoll in America, Europe and all through Australia. These have included performances at the Rocklahoma festival with artists such as Guns and Roses, The Scorpions and Disturbed just to name a few.

I’ve been teaching drums for the past 5 years and I specialise in Rock drumming but am able to teach anything from Metal to Jazz. My style of teaching is to first ensure you have a clear understanding of the basics and then I branch out to areas of interest for the student. I cover everything from sight reading, rudiments and basic drum beats to more technical beats and drum solos. My number one goal with lessons to make learning the drums a fun and enjoyable experience and to make sure you leave each lesson having learnt something new.
