PETE

His drumming journey began with a passion for rock music from a very young age

Newcastle Drum Teacher

Pete started drumming when he was ten years old and has been receiving drum lessons since he

was thirteen years of age. His drumming journey began with a passion for rock music from a very young 

age, with his main influences being hardcore, shoegaze, progressive rock and jazz.

Throughout high school Pete taught basic drum lessons to younger students. He was also a peer support 

leader and ran rhythm-based games for primary school carnivals and played regularly at school assemblies 

and gala days.

Pete's main musical project is an alternative-rock band called Osprey, which has been playing around 

Newcastle and Sydney for two years. He also has two other side-projects. One is hardcore band called 

Skorn, and another is an unnamed shoegaze band that is still in development.

Pete primarily focuses on professional development, mainly in tools and skills to utilise around the kit and on 

techniques to incorporate into drumming.
