Simon Hanna

I have been playing drums for 10 years starting when I was 13, having taken lessons and receiving a wealth of knowledge from some of the most renowned drummers and musicians through my studies in high school and Bachelor’s in Music including Tony Floyd, Ronny Ferella, Peter Robertson, Mark Grunden, James Rust as well as world-renowned drummer Dave Weckl (and getting a certificate from him with his signature). I have also played in a variety of styles and ensembles including Jazz, Afro Cuban, Brazilian Choir, Balkan Choir, South Indian, Rock to Australian Rock, Middle Eastern and Balinese Gamelan, to name a few

I have also performed at many venues across Melbourne including The Northcote Town Hall, Open Studio, Wesley Anne, The Clocktower and the Hamer Hall Arts Centre, as well as perform with a variety of musicians, including Pat Bruce, Dana Crowe, Adrian Sherriff, Adam Starr, Anthony Schulz and the Orkeztra Glasso Bashalde, I have also gained experience in many fields of the music industry, including performing, teaching, arranging, composing, ensemble and band direction, studio work and many more, including the chance to create a music score for Project Zero, a video game made by Swinburne University, and arrange an Original piece of mine, The High Way, for a 44 piece ensemble at VCASS (Victorian College Of The Arts Secondary School) and currently playing with The Vignettes, rocking all round Melbourne with some sweet rock serenading, reminiscent of Angus Stone mixed with Jimi Hendrix and Jack White

Currently now studying Graduate Diploma of Secondary Education, I am continuing to learn and grow to become a well-rounded musician and want to pass what I’ve learnt and my experiences on to others and show them dreams can come true

I am available for session work whether live or studio, fill in gigs, lessons, arranging, composing and band or ensemble direction
