Thank you for your interest.
I am the founder and director of BRHYTHMIC Pty. Ltd.
With nearly 20 years of teaching experience, I have taught thousands of students including one-on-one lessons, group lessons, percussion ensembles, large ensemble tutorials, music workshops, music camps and conducting.
I am responsible for leading and mentoring a number of drum and percussion tutors in my team, providing guidance and leadership to ensure excellence in music tuition. At BRHYTHMIC we have developed a number of valuable resources for our students, including access to MP3 recordings, sheet music, online calendars, reminders for rehearsals and performances as well as a repertoire management system.
In recent years, four of my students have topped their HSC in music (performance) at Knox Grammar School, St Ives High School (x2) and Northern Beaches Christian School. In 2017 one of my students was nominated for Encore. It brings me great joy to see students of all levels progress and reach their highest potential, in music and personally as young adults.
I toured with the Knox Abbotsleigh Youth Orchestra in Europe and America at the age of 14. Whilst at school, the Knox drum and percussion tutor, Ron Lemke taught me. He was recommended to the school by my father, Keith Harrison, who himself taught drums and percussion at Knox for 16 years. I completed Grade 8 Orchestral Percussion with Trinity College London, with Distinction. In 1999, I topped my HSC in music 3-unit performance (the first instance of a percussionist topping HSC music) and was instructed directly by the Chair of Percussion and the Conservatorium of Music, Daryl Pratt, in four-mallet marimba.
Since 2013, I have tutored at Knox Grammar School; tutoring students from beginner level right through to Grade 8 and HSC level.
In 2016 I released a 15-track album (www.harrisontheartist.com). I wrote the songs and played drums and percussion throughout the entire album, sang and played piano. In this process, I have had the privilege of working with some incredible musicians and music producers both here and in Europe.
More recently in 2017, I have been awarded a scholarship at the highly progressive and state-of-the-art SAE (Sound & Audio Engineering) Creative and Media Institute offered exclusively at the Byron Bay campus. This has meant moving to the Byron Bay Hinterland and flying to and from Sydney to continue my commitments teaching students whilst I complete the scholarship.
Also in 2017, I recorded at Sony’s headquarters in Tokyo and continue to record at international recording studios.
It is with pleasure that I share with you my experience in music.
“We show people how to play music because people who have music in their world have better, more fulfilling and happy lives”
