Drum Kit

About

All styles of playing, all age groups, from beginner to advanced levels. I have over 20 years of drum teaching experience, including private lessons, tertiary tuition, masterclasses and group workshops. I teach students of all ability levels across a wide range of genres with a focus on technique and body mechanics as applied to the drum kit. I am now accepting students for drum lessons in Melbourne at my Flemington studio. About Steve: Steve began playing drums professionally in the mid-nineties and graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium in 2001 with a Bachelor of Music. He toured and recorded with Kate Miller-Heidke for seven years. During this time, he performed live at the 2007 ARIA Awards, played shows throughout Australia, the UK and Asia, and appeared on programs including Sunrise, Live at the Chapel and Rove. Steve has worked with other high-profile acts including Darren Hayes, Angus & Julia Stone, Serena Ryder and Transport. Steve is in high demand as a recording and touring session player. Steve performed in the premiere season of Muriel’s Wedding the Musical and recorded drums for the original cast soundtrack. He also performed for the Melbourne season of Evita the Musical starring Tina Arena and played the 2019 Australian tour of Muriel’s Wedding the Musical. He currently tours with Melbourne artist Evan Klar. With over 20 years’ experience as a drum kit teacher, Steve has mentored players of all different ages and abilities. His students include drummers from many high-profile Australian acts. Steve believes the best results come from a customised teaching approach. He works with his students to understand their interests and goals and designs a learning experience suited to their individual needs. He is particularly interested in technique and body mechanics as applied to the drum kit. Steve provides lessons in Melbourne and is available for live and studio session work Australia wide.
