Dear friends, once again I hope all is well in your corner of the World!
In 2022, I’m starting a new venture, composing ‘rhythm for film’, with my company RUMBLE!
Over the past couple of years, I’ve been working on a range of percussion-based compositions. There’s a variety of styles including multi-layered drum kits, military, ‘junkyard’ percussion and ‘epic’ jungle / tribal pieces. The idea is to submit them for possible Jingles, TV themes or Film soundtracks.
I plan to record a bunch of tracks and make a promo video over the next few months, so please check back soon!
Getting some ideas together in my great room at St Stephen’s.
However, no music today…..I’m off to the seaside! 😊
I’m really enjoying my new role as ‘Drum Specialist’ Examiner for Rockschool, some great young players, Inspiring!
‘Overdubs’ at Soundbaker Studios, great fun 😊
Great news, my new book The Junior Drummer’s Bible has won the ‘Best Edition Award’ at this year’s Frankfurt Musikmesse!! Obviously I’m delighted and would like to send my sincere thanks to Detlef Kessler and everyone at AMA Verlag in Germany. I’d also like to send a huge thanks to Rob Agostini, Gareth Andersen, David Pye, Amanda Ianuzzi and Sky Simone who make up my incredible team in Australia.
More good news, our album is now available on Spotify!!

I am now back in Australia after my recent trip to Europe. I had a great time in Berlin visiting my book publisher, AMA Verlag. I would sincerely like to thank Detlef & Maike Kessler, Harald Wingerter and all the wonderful team at AMA for your kindness and making me feel so welcome x
‘Ready for Shipping’ at the AMA Verlag Warehouse, Berlin!
I had a fab time on my recent holiday in the USA. I’ve visited the ‘States’ several times before but never really had time off to do the ‘tourist thing’. It truly was a fantastic experience to catch up with some old friends and finally see the sights of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York, I highly recommend it!
