Steph McIntyre - Drums

Steph McIntyre has spent over 16 years as a musician, 5 years as a teacher and a lead a life of performance, both in Australia and overseas. She is dedicated to the development of others through knowledge and practice and is constantly searching for new skills to share.
 
Beginning her musical journey at age 5, Steph McIntyre started on piano then moved to flute and saxophone before discovering her calling in drums and percussion at 12 years old. By high school, she found herself playing drums in the school’s big band, concert band, symphonic band and string ensemble, as well as creating her own rock band with other students. Graduating from Gladstone State High School in 2011, Steph made the move to the Brisbane where she was accepted into the Bachelor of Popular Music course at Griffith University Conservatorium, Gold Coast. It was during her time here that she started tutoring privately and soon found herself being asked to teach at music workshops around Queensland.
 
Not to let her love of performance fade, shortly after moving to Brisbane Steph joined B grade brass band, ‘Windsor Brass’ and formed a pop-rap band, ‘Sneeky Picnic’. While playing with Sneeky Picnic, Steph had the opportunity to play at a selection of large QLD festivals and performances between 2012 and 2014 including: 2013 and 2014 Big Day Out, 2013 Red Deer Festival, 2013 One Way Street Festival and the Griffith University SEED Album Launch at the Brisbane Powerhouse. In 2014, Sneeky Picnic was also nominated for an Australian Independent Music Award for their single ‘Ay-Yo’, which saw the band fly down to Sydney to attend the awards ceremony.
 
When Steph joined Windsor Brass, she was given the opportunity to compete in the QLD state brass band competition and helped lead Windsor to first place as well as being awarded ‘Best Percussion’. It was through Windsor Brass that Steph was invited to play with their sister A grade band, Brisbane Excelsior. She went onto compete in the Brass Band National Championships in 2014 with the band, and once again won the competition. Later that year, she travelled to China with Brisbane Excelsior to play at the Shanghai Tourism Festival, performing to an audience of 3.5 million people with live TV and Radio coverage being broadcasted to a further 200 million.
 
Steph graduated her degree in 2014, leaving with academic excellence awards as well as being inducted into the Golden Key International Honors Society. She continues to play with Windsor Brass and is currently drumming for the 7-piece punk/ska Brisbane group, ‘The Mouldy Lovers’.
