New Zealand Musician Magazine drum columnist

Facilitating a professional series of four high quality drum courses to groups of thirty drummers has given me the experience to understand pragmatic and contingent thinking.

The 1991 Premier Big Band drum clinic (New Zealand Music Trades Association ) was followed in 1992 with the Sonor Certificate eight week drum course (Auckland Rock Shops Ltd). I was able to enlarge the concept to a back to back Autumn/Spring drum clinic: ‘The Ultimate Drum School’ at Otara Music and Arts (OMAC) in 1995.
