Sean Isaac Tng

Co-Founder | Director | Lead Educator

Having picked up his first pair of sticks at the age of three, Sean has since established himself behind the drum kit for many artists and musicians on both the large and small stage, from small live music venues, to arenas, stadiums and theatres. 
Sean is passionate about drumming education. His aspiration as an educator is to empower and enable drummers to reach their full potential through education, community and inspiration. Its important to him that students understand the value of what they are learning AS they are learning it, but also knowing how it is directly applicable to REAL-LIFE musical situations. 

Some of his drumming career milestones so far include; winning and placing as a top 3 finalist in state and nation wide drum offs, Completing his Bachelor of Music at the Australian International Conservatorium of Music (now AMPA) and working as a masterclass educator and clinician.

In addition to this, Sean is also blessed to be working with some of the highest calibre singer/song writers, artists and musicians within Australia and abroad as a professional session musician.
