Home: Welcome

Dom has been teaching my daughters the art of drumming for the last two years. He is very patient and is a great teacher who explains concepts in simple terms. His lessons are structured and fun and the kids love coming back each week. If you're looking for a drum teacher, I can highly recommend Dom.

Loving my music lessons. Dom is professional and patient. I initially attempted an online program for a year and got nowhere. In under 6 months, with Dom's teaching, I have achieved far more than I had ever expected, after taking up music for the first time as I approach 40.

I have recently started lessons with Dom and his insight and tips have tremendously improved my drumming. He has allowed me to expand my vocabulary on the drums, from learning technical beats, to working on the basics. Dom is an excellent teacher and I am keen to apply for the Queensland Conservatorium for jazz drums next year.

Lessons are fun and Dom is great at teaching me songs and grooves. I love drumming!

Teaching Philosohpy

My focus is to develop the creativity and individuality of each student, while still progressing their technique. From my experience as a teacher, I have gathered that every student has a different way of learning and as such, requires a mentor that recognises the most effective teaching methods for that individual. With an emphasis on negotiated learning, my priority is to provide a friendly, positive, and productive learning experience suited to the needs of the student.
