Max Slater - Drums

Max Slater is a Conservatorium trained drummer and percussionist who has been playing drums and percussion for more than fifteen years. For the last five years he's also been teaching privately and in schools, with students from four to forties. Max started playing drums in Grade 4 after trying several different musical endeavours and instruments before realising hitting things with sticks was by far the most enjoyable! 
 
Max continued his drum education throughout primary and high school, performing in various school ensembles as well as his own garage rock bands with friends. After finishing high school Max completed a Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Popular performance at the Central Queensland Conservatorium;  studying drum set performance with Paul Hudson and Jason Smyth-Tomkins as well as latin percussion with fellow Just Percussion teacher Gustavo Cereijo. 
 
Outside of teaching, Max is currently doing session work around Brisbane and performing with several groups including Greshka a neo-gypsy band which has played shows and festivals around Australia, and Brisbane based singer songwriter Charlotte Emily.
 
Max's teaching philosophy is that while sometimes music can be challenging it should above all be enjoyable and rewarding.
 
Max is probably also one of the few people to play drums at the foot of Mt. Everest (it may have been on a rock).
