I have a keen interest in music, and have been heavily involved in my school's instrumental and vocal programs, being a member of five such ensembles - two choirs and four bands - within the school. I play drums and am the leader of the Percussion section in the Concert Band, and I play in the Stage Band. I also play Double Bass, and Electric Bass, In various ensembles including the Jazz Quintet, and Chamber Ensemble.
I also play in various Community bands including Mid North Coast All Stars Stage Band, in which I play drums and percussion.
