Hello, I'm glad you've visited my site.
I've been playing music since I was 6 years old. I started learning drums when I was 13 and have been teaching drums since I left school in 2000.
I've been fortunate to perform with some incredible groups and on some amazing stages throughout New Zealand and overseas. Some highlights would include The Thomas Oliver Band opening for Joe Cocker and Cold Chisel and performing in Melbourne, Australia. I've also toured South Korea (2012) and China (2013, 2015) with Strike Percussion with the tour of 2015 including 6 concerts in 5 cities.
I really enjoy passing on the knowledge I've gained and continue to develop through performance, private tuition and online tutorials. I studied Jazz Performance at Massey University and have a great insight into what it takes to seek music as a career.
So whether beginner or advanced, professional or hobbyist, whatever your favourite style of drumming/music is I am happy to help you achieve your goals.
I look forward to meeting you! Tom.
