Jeremy Schiftan

Drummer - Educator - Composer - Manager


With five years experience in music tuition and a Bachelor of Contemporary Music from Victorian College of the Arts, Jeremy offers music lessons tailored to suit students of all ages and skill levels. 

With the addition of four years' experience in childcare, Jeremy is well versed in teaching young students in an exciting and engaging manner. Jeremy believes that the best way for children to gain a fruitful entry into the world of playing music is to have fun and establish an intuitive engagement with the process whilst developing foundational skills.

For older students and/or more advanced players lessons can focus on reading, theory, aural skills, composition, improvisation, tone, groove, dynamics and ensemble playing. The key principle is structuring lessons to your needs and ambitions as a musician.
