The Chop Accelerator Program has been so good. The Fill in 5 workout is my favourite. Levels 6, 7 & 8 a few times a day. Levels 9 & 10 are out of reach at the moment so I've really got something to work towards...thanks, Grant!

Focused programs. In-depth, step by step instruction on a range of topics and styles to help you achieve results in your own time.

I love being creative on the drums - how about you?

About Creativity

I remember spending countless hours in the practice room coming up with my own ideas and just trying different things. The hours would fly by as I was so engaged with the creative practice. Of course I also spent the time developing get my core techniques so that I had the facility.

There’s nothing more exciting that playing a groove or doing a fill that you came up with yourself. If you have spent the time to get a rudiment comfortable and in control, how often do you spend the time to explore what you can do with it on the drumset? Unfortunately most drummers will not take it past the practice pad or use it on the kit in one way that someone else showed them.

Extending Existing Knowledge vs New Knowledge

Let’s keep things simple and say as drummers we have two baskets of our drumming knowledge up to this point in our journey:

Basket One - we own it!
These are grooves, fills and patterns that you know really well and can pull them out whenever you want to put into your playing.

Basket Two - you’ve started on something
These are things that you have started on the the learning journey with but either got sidetracked or it was taking too long to get it so you thought, “I’ll get back to that later”. Which of course is not so likely. These are things that you have spent time on, but are not something that you think of to use in your music because they haven’t become a part of who your are as a drummer. 


Get a kick ass Basket One!
You’ve already spent time getting control of a rudiment (or other pattern), exploit it for all you can. Own that pattern!

I want to show you how to be creative with ideas to get the most out them, and put them in your playing.

Of course there will be heaps of new things to learn too!


My origin as a professional musician was playing in a full time professional covers band. This is a great learning platform for any musician. We had a huge repertoire of songs and I would constantly have to learn new songs every week as the latest hits would come out. I learn’t everything by ear so this taught me a great deal about hearing and understanding what the drummer does in a song and how song writing structures work. I began to realise what the better drummers were doing and how they shaped their drum parts to support the song. I was very meticulous in learning the material and would sit down with headphones, going over each bar, so that I had every single hi hat opening, ride bell and other parts so I could be as close to the original drum part as possible.

As I progressed with my learning, I started looking at doing formal studies to advance my musical skills further. I started to audition at conservatories and universities. Unfortunately my music theory skills were well down in comparison to my drumming skills so I was unsuccessful in my first attempts. I then started to get music theory lessons and after 3 years of auditioning, I was accepted to do my Bachelor of Music. I’ve since gone on to become a Doctor of Music so I have the formal qualifications as well as my on the road experiences to relate to both sides of the spectrum. I’ve also been a conservatorium lecturer and have written course curriculums for subjects so have the skills and know how to structure a course. 

As well as that, I’ve travelled around the world doing concerts and also for my sponsors doing hundreds of clinics, masterclasses and percussion festivals over the past 25+ years. I’ve also done countless hours of private tuition for a wide range of students doing everything from playing in local bands to going to university to winning national drum competitions.

I’ve spent an innumerable number of hours exploring and discovering this awesome instrument and love to share not only the what, but also the how and why on all things drums. I love the creative aspect of music and like to look at ideas from a different perspective. Doing this helps us to discover alternative ways to play things and leads to finding your own individual voice on the instrument. I’m super excited about putting these programs together and would love to be able to transform and inspire your personal music journey.
