Josh Theunissen

Warragul & Pakenham Area (Victoria, Australia)
Josh picked up sticks at the age of 4 years of age! His drumming education journey started at the age of 5. He showed such an enthusiasm for drumming that his parents took him to a drum teacher who initially didn’t want to teach someone so young but after giving him a shot on the drums decided that his natural ability outweighed their reservations about teaching him.

Josh studied Units 1 - 4 VCE Music in Secondary School while continuing to have lessons all the way through school thus developing his craft to the level of excellence that it is today.

Josh works with Red Cymbals as the main product demonstrator as well as leading the Red Drum Sheds and playing in outdoor performance videos to showcase the cymbals.

Josh teaches both in person and over Skype/Facetime in either 30 minute lessons or longer by negotiation (Australian Eastern Standard Time GMT+10).

Josh teaches in Pakenham and Warragul Victoria. To book a lesson with Josh, please email: or visit his INSTAGRAM
