"I took lessons from Wayne for about a year. He gave me a good sense of how drums relate to the group/band situation but also how to play creatively. He taught me everything I know about the application of drum rudiments in playing and most importantly he gave me the ability to teach myself - to hear and absorb how others played, to read drumset sheet music, and to express and develop my own ideas."

"I have been learning Drums from Wayne every week for almost two and a Half years now. Since I have started, Wayne has showed me how to approach drums from multiple perspectives whether it be when I'm creating grooves, blending and mixing in with other members of the band and also learning new grooves. Wayne has showed me how to read and write music which is a huge advantage when teaching myself new things."

"I've started lessons with Wayne recently and he's been very helpful in improving the efficiency of my hand and feet technique. He's an enthusiastic teacher, gives practical critiques and provides useful exercises to follow up on whatever I've worked on during a lesson. He's also experienced in playing a variety of styles."

Anyone who truly wants to improve should know that to achieve this you need genuine feedback, constructive criticism, and practical advice, you can rely on Wayne for this. Wayne hones in on what needs to improve and creates focused practise methods to get you to the next level. "

Wayne Katz is a superb drum teacher. Hearing my son talk about the lessons and hearing him progress, I know that Wayne is the kind of teacher who gets their students to think about what they are doing while learning to play in a way that goes beyond the cliche of 'combining theory and practice'. He makes learning fun and cool and for young students is a perfect role model. A wicked wit and always reasonable to deal with, Wayne is a parent's music teacher dream. - August 2014, Brisbane, Australia

I've been learning drums from Wayne for a little while now and I think he is a great person, a brilliant drummer and an amazing teacher. Wayne has helped my drumming improve in leaps and bounds in a short amount of time. He is really good at explaining things in different ways to help my brain understand. He is also great at understanding what I want to achieve with my drumming and how to get me there. I am sad to see Wayne move interstate and that is the only reason I would be discontinuing my lessons with him. All the best with your future endeavors Wayne!! - July 2014, Brisbane, Australia

Even if you are a complete beginner like myself, I highly recommend lessons with Wayne as he really takes the time to get to know how his students work and what suits them as individual learners. I have always enjoyed coming to each lesson as Wayne constantly provides a fun, relaxed and engaging atmosphere to be creative in!

His lessons have a positive atmosphere as he is a friendly and approachable guy, would definitely recommend him!"
