20+ years drumming. Numerous international tours. 8+ years experience teaching privately. Numerous albums and recordings. Composing, singing, arranging, live and recorded. My resources have been used in my private drumming school for years. Heavily tested, and revised. Benefit from my trial and errors! Save yourself your time.
Matt’s Drum Lessons began in 2011 and has served the northern suburbs with high quality drum lessons ever since. I have been playing drums since 1999 and I completed Grade 4 AMEB Music Theory while in school. In 2009, gained entry into Bachelor of Music (Jazz Performance) at WAAPA. Besides my short time at the conservatory, I have been fortunate to have learned from some of best teachers in Australia.
“I enjoyed my time with Matt enormously. He catered for my taste in music which was a bonus. He is professional and fun and I recommend him to all my friends.” – F. R. “Matt was a great drum teacher who possessed drum techniques and teachings skills to help improve my drumming. I enjoyed the lessons and practical advice he gave me to pick up new beats quickly. He has instilled the discipline I needed to keep my timing more in tune with the rest of our church band.” – Sorin M. “Matt is clearly passionate about playing the drums which reflects on his teaching and makes each lesson interesting. He is also very clear, patient and organised in every lesson. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drum lessons!” – Lara “Matt is a patient teacher with a very keen ear and appreciation of a broad range of musical styles. Matt understands my goals as a drummer and his lessons are structured to helping me achieve them. He is highly perceptive and has pointed to flaws I was unaware of. Addressing them has made a big difference to my drumming. He also breaks things down and makes them easy to understand. I am a better drummer because of Matt and I’m sure I’ll continue to improve further under his tutorship. If you’re prepared to meet Matt halfway by practising, he will help you to not only improve, but enjoy playing drums more.” – John F. “I really enjoy Matt’s drum lessons, he is a very good teacher. I would recommend his lessons to anybody who enjoys playing the drums, and likes hands-on lessons. His lessons aren’t too complex, or too easy. Overall, Matt’s lessons are excellent and I would recommend his lessons to anyone who plays the drums.” – Gabrielle S. “Our son has been taking drum lessons with Matt for a while now. His improvement in his skill level has been amazing and this is due to Matt’s patience and feedback. Matt sets his expectations according to the student and their capability. We have always found Matt to be very professional and honest in his dealings with us. He has always been open in his feedback.” – M. van Wyk
