Cameron Budge


I have been drumming for 47 years and have a background in Pipe Band Drumming. I currently teach Drum Set at schools throughout Hawke’s Bay and have a private tuition base at my home studio. I teach all styles and prepare students to be as all rounded as possible. I am a traditional/modern teacher who makes a big deal of basics …. Sticking, Rudiments, Posture, Reading and being creative. 

Firstly, Drumming is fun. Kids (and adults) are attracted to the sound of drumming for all sorts of reasons and it very quickly gets exciting. 

I individualize my lessons which develop a student at their pace while giving them appropriate challenges.
