Teacher of: Drum Kit
Angus has been drumming in Canberra for over 15 years after starting his drumming endeavours at the age of 5, with great hopes of becoming a Rock star one day. Angus holds a Bachelor of Music from the ANU. At high school, Angus became somewhat addicted to playing gigs and also began session drumming for bands, playing in acts such as Midnight Cinderella (2014-15), Rubyice (2015-16) and East Row Rabble (2016-17). Although he no longer session drums, he is gigging in various bands around Canberra and has also turned his attention to a career in teaching.
Angus says, ‘I have always been passionate about drum teaching, having fond memories of my learning experience and the gateway it built for me to pursue a professional drumming career. I believe that teaching a love for drumming is equally important to learning how to groove and read rhythm. I teach a well-rounded criterion that focuses on developing drumming techniques, playing to various charts with accompaniment (playing in time), ability to drum with diversification (different genres and grooves) and building a respectful relationship with my students. I also aim to boost each student’s drumming confidence as this leads to a higher level of performance and passion. I give 110% effort towards creating pathways for my students and possibilities for them to take their drumming further.’
