About this pro

Hi there, fellow lovers of drumming!

Thanks for checking out my page!

I am an Australian drummer based out here in Vegas now. Recently, I've been touring the world with Avril Lavigne and Tom Morello, and was with Filter for many years. I love to share my passion for drumming with others!

I also have 18 years teaching/clinic experience at various schools, academies, colleges, and world renowned schools such as M.I. in Los Angeles.

*All my lessons are invoiced, and payments are handled securely via venmo/paypal/cash app/zelle etc*

I love seeing students have fun and evolve into brilliant drummers with a career of their own.

Referred to a school by my former music teacher to teach drums at age 18. Loved sharing my knowledge and passion with others!

What types of students have you worked with?

All types and abilities. Ages 4+, experience with dislexia and autism, and advanced students looking to gain music school/college entry. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my Skype students (who started a few years ago with me in person in Australia) performed his first big concert with his brother, in front of his whole school (1000+ people). He called later to tell me he felt like a rock star when they all screamed for them and everyone wanted his autograph. This is the exact reason I love to teach. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There is not one right way to learn anything. Find a teacher that listens to you and guides you through your weaknesses by using your strengths. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What would you like to achieve with drumming?

Do you want to go to college for it?

Do you want to pursue music as a career?

Are you learning music for fun/curiosity?

Who are some of your favorite bands/drummers?
