A note from DK
“I have been playing in the Australian music scene professionally for over a decade. I’ve put my heart and soul into drumming and learnt a lot along the way. I believe that drums are one of the most enjoyable and physically demanding instruments to play. I was lucky as a junior as I always had my father to teach me the correct technique and guide me along the way with his amazing drum course and knowledge. However most young drummers do not have the same luxury I had as a young drummer. This is why I am offering my knowledge and skills to the next generation of drummers. Although I had someone there to guide me through the drumming side of things, I found it hard to find a mentor that was an active member of the Australian Music Scene that could guide me through the business side of things. All I ever wanted was to be a touring drummer in a great band. I had the drumming skills but I had no idea how to get from drumming in my bedroom to drumming to thousands of people. When I’m performing to thousands of people now with my various acts, I still get overwhelmed with joy and satisfaction knowing that I have made that distant dream as a kid a reality today. It has not been easy but I believe the knowledge and experience I’ve gained along the way can be passed onto aspiring young drummers to fast track their journey as a successful musician.”

The students in Ballarat will be learning drums on Pearl’s newest digital drum kit the E-Pro with Zildjian Gen 16 cymbals. Melbourne students will be taught on an acoustic Pearl Masters kit with a custom finish and an array of Zildjian’s finest cymbals.
