Hi, I’m Antony Pettersen a professional drummer and music tutor from Teesside. Since graduating from university in 2017 I have worked tirelessly to build a career as a musician. I can offer you excellent live performances and recordings as well as high quality musical tuition.
I am heavily qualified in the field of music credited with a BMus in Popular Music Performance, an MMus in Creative Musician and a RSL Level 6 diploma in Individual Instrument Teaching.
Since 2013 I have studied music at both undergraduate and postgrad level at the prestigious institutions of ICMP and Leeds College of Music respectively. Over the course of my education I have been a student under great drummers such as Chuck Sabo, Justin Scott, Darren Ashford, Sebastiaan De Krom, Steve White, Neal Wilkinson and JP Bouvet. I have also attended masterclasses by great drummers such as Ash Soan, Mike Johnston, Karl Brazil and Anikka Nilles.
From studying under such well established and esteemed drummers I have gained a very solid understanding of the art of drumming as well as excellent musicianship skills. I am very adept in both a live performance and a studio setting. I work to an exceptionally high standard and can adapt to situations very quickly. To find a more in-depth breakdown of my playing or if you would like to work with me please see the relevant sections of the website.
Since 2017 my main passion has been teaching drums. I absolutely love inspiring others to take up studying drums and there is nothing better than supporting an individuals journey into playing drums. I teach for a wide variety of musical education providers as well as privately. If you would like to enquire about a lesson please get in touch.
