STUDENT TESTIMONIAL I have been attending drumming lessons with Duane for the past twelve months and highly recommend him. He is a most accomplished drummer which is demonstrated by his participation in bands and drum lines. Duane is a very patient teacher, which is especially appreciated as I am a mature age student, and he has made considerable improvement in my drumming since I have been under his tuition. He does not ignore areas that I consider important to my progress and wellbeing such as ergonomics and efficient playing methods. Drumming technique is high on his agenda which is leading me towards a more competent and musical outcome. At the same time, I am having heaps of fun and enjoying the whole experience. I look forward to each lesson. I have a lot to learn and I feel confident in Duane’s teaching and mentoring skills to help me keep focussed, enthusiastic and obtain the results I hope for.
