General Info
I am a drummer and percussionist, with a Bachelor of Jazz Performance (Honours) from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. From early beginnings in classical percussion, I now specialise in drum kit.  I teach across a whole range of styles including jazz, rock & pop, funk & groove styles (drum kit) as well as orchestral and wind band percussion (tuned percussion, timpani, battery and auxiliary). I can also play piano (AMEB grade 6, Musicianship grade 5).
I teach from my studio in Summer Hill, located opposite Summer Hill Public School, and at James Ruse Agricultural High School.
