Thank you for your interest.
I am the founder and director of BRHYTHMIC Pty. Ltd.
With over 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, including teaching the first-ever student in Australia to achieve AMus for Percussion. Yes, one of our student’s, from Knox Grammar School, broke the record!
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. Over years of development, we have developed our flagship program, the Beginner Beats Program, which moves the basic princliples of drumming. For more advanced students we then move towards the Moving Musos Program and The Percussionist.
It is regular for my students to top their HSC in music (performance). This has happend on a number of occasions at Knox Grammar School, St Ives High School 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.
As a young child myself, 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. 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.
From 2013 until 2019, I have tutored and performed at Knox Grammar School; tutoring students from beginner level right through to Grade 8, HSC level, and AMus 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 I have been awarded my second scholarship at the highly progressive and state-of-the-art SAE (Sound & Audio Engineering) Creative and Media Institute, Byron Bay, completing a Masters is Creative Industries. 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.
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.
