Matt’s Drum Lessons


"I enjoyed my time with Matt enormously. He catered for my taste in music which was a bonus. He is professional and fun and I recommend him to all my friends."- F. R.
"Matt was a great drum teacher who possessed drum techniques and teachings skills to help improve my drumming. I enjoyed the lessons and practical advice he gave me to pick up new beats quickly. He has instilled the discipline I needed to keep my timing more in tune with the rest of our church band."- Sorin M.
"Matt is clearly passionate about playing the drums which reflects on his teaching and makes each lesson interesting. He is also very clear, patient and organised in every lesson. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drum lessons!"- Lara
"Matt is a patient teacher with a very keen ear and appreciation of a broad range of musical styles. Matt understands my goals as a drummer and his lessons are structured to helping me achieve them. He is highly perceptive and has pointed to flaws I was unaware of. Addressing them has made a big difference to my drumming. He also breaks things down and makes them easy to understand. I am a better drummer because of Matt and I’m sure I’ll continue to improve further under his tutorship. If you’re prepared to meet Matt halfway by practising, he will help you to not only improve, but enjoy playing drums more."- John F.
"I really enjoy Matt's drum lessons, he is a very good teacher. I would recommend his lessons to anybody who enjoys playing the drums, and likes hands-on lessons. His lessons aren't too complex, or too easy. Overall, Matt's lessons are excellent and I would recommend his lessons to anyone who plays the drums."- Gabrielle S.

Matt’s Drum Lessons began in 2011 and has served the northern suburbs with high quality drum lessons ever since. I have been playing drums since 1999 and I completed Grade 4 AMEB Music Theory while in school.

In 2009, gained entry into Bachelor of Music (Jazz Performance) at WAAPA. Besides my short time at the conservatory, I have been fortunate to have learned from some of best teachers in Australia (Daniel Susnjar, Ric Eastman, Chris Tarr, Kim Baker, Ben Vanderwal, Greg Brenton).

See the About Section for more.


I have toured internationally numerous times, including: Europe, the UK, the US, Asia, and Australia. I have recorded four albums as a drummer (and vocalist); written, arranged and recorded my own music; created video clips; and written my own drum book.

See the Timeline Section for more.


Unlike bigger teaching schools that employ casual teachers, my students see me every week; ensuring continuity, rapport, and skill building without cancellations from the teacher. See the Lessons Section for more.

Matt’s Drum Lessons has everything needed to allow for the best learning experience:

  1. Teaching in the afternoons, weekdays.
  2. One-on-one drum tuition, separate drum kits for student and teacher.
  3. The only drum teacher in Perth with almost two hundred songs of hand-made sheet music using professional notation software; and his own drum book (Rockin’ in Rhythm)!
  4. Learn to read, write, and understand real musical notation.
  5. All skill levels welcomed. Best suited 8+ years age.
  6. I am friendly, patient, and able to break drumming down to absolute basics.
  7. I display a current Working with Children Check in the waiting room.
