Professional Drummer, Drum Teacher and Music Examiner
Having been a professional teacher and working drummer and music examiner(9 instruments) for well over a decade- Drumming is the thing closest to my heart. After a recent years travelling around New Zealand and South East Asia for a year, I’ve very recently returned home, hungry to get back out gigging and playing music.
Touring and playing many gigs in one week is something very familiar to me, I have toured Europe extensively whilst playing with Heavy Metal bands Darkest Era (Metal Blade/Cruz del Sur) and Na Cruithne. ... Outside of that, I am a regular in the Irish pub and wedding cover scene both as stand in and permanent roles. I always have prided myself on my reliability and dedication to the bands I join. A positive attitude, showmanship and obvious love for what I do comes easily.
Having been a AMED Rockschool (Aus/NZ) examiner(9 instruments) and long-term Rockschool (UK) teacher, I am obviously a well educated musician all round, with very good band leader skills, both where organization is concerned, and developing a seamless sets and killer performance. I am also a very capable backing vocalist with a reasonably strong vocal range.
