Devi Mamak - Piano
I am a classically trained pianist and have been teaching piano for 40 years starting at the age of 14. I am also a composer with published works, recorded an album with my 6 piece world fusion / classical / jazz band and perform locally with a disco funk band and perform in a duets, (one with a violinist and one with a sitar player).
Apart from my classical training the last 10 years or so I have changed my teaching style to have a more wholistic approach with plenty of improvisation, composition and exploring. I like to encourage students to guide me into finding what they would like to learn rather than me set a curriculum for them. Of course I always will suggest supplement pieces and exercises so students get plenty of support in note reading and general musical knowledge.

Huw Charles-Walsh - Drums
Hi everyone! I’m Huw, a drummer and singer of 13 years and an educator for 4 years. I love music, I love to play the drums, sing, and I love showing my students how easy it is to pick up a new instrument and start a journey of self development through incorporating music into their lives. I'm offering drumming and singing lessons at Korowal Studios.
During the last 4 years of teaching full time. I have helped people of all ages and walks of life to start playing the drums and navigate the process of learning a new instrument. I have taken students of mine from their very first lesson to completing AMEB courses all the way up to 4th grade, and helped others be accepted into Monash and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.
After I had completed my B.A. of Music from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and studied privately for a year with internationally renown drummer Rick Dior in the US, I accumulated a broad understanding of the available texts, methods and syllabuses, new and old, that have been used to teach many of the great drummers of past and present, all around the world. This means I am able to cater my lessons to the individual goals of the student. I can help you develop beautiful and flowing technique that makes playing the drums effortless and satisfying, teach you to play with good feel and keep a solid rhythm, and give you all the right things to practice so that you don’t spend any time expending energy and effort to no avail.
Above all however, the most satisfying part of teaching for me is seeing my students enjoy themselves and have fun. As the last two years have shown for us, having activities to do that bring you joy are invaluable and worth cultivating as an investment in a rich and meaningful life.
Please check out two videos that I have recently uploaded to my YouTube channel if you would like to see my teaching in action, and maybe even start your drumming journey from there.
Lessons with me are $40 per 30 minutes, $60 per 45 minutes and $70 per hour.
You can contact me on my mobile 0413 253 235. Or email
Hope to hear from you soon.
