About Stephen Coetzee

Stephen began his journey with the drums at the age of 11, and began studying under the mentorship of one of Scotland's leading session drummers, Tom Annan. 

Over the years, Stephen has worked with many talented bands and musicians, leading him to work in many areas, including musical theatre, wedding/function gigs, touring work and studio sessions. Stephen played on the world premiere of Carnegie - The Musical at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016. 

Most notably, Stephen was resident drummer with Indie Blues band GT's Boos Band from 2013 - 2015 and recorded on their debut album Steak House. Before leaving the chair, Stephen workshopped the songs for their second self-titled album, which led the band to appear on the BBC4 programme UK's Best Part-time Band, hosted by Rhod Gilbert and Midge Ure. 

Recently, Stephen depped as drummer for 9 to 5 (Highgate, London) and is looking forward to working in Wales over December as drummer for The Sleeping Beauty (UK Productions) at The Rhyl Pavilion. 

Stephen uses his experience as a drummer to encourage and inspire students. His aim is to show students the array of possibilities with the instrument. As well as teaching the important principals of being a drummer, Stephen encourages his students to listen to as much music as possible, and encourages them to bring pieces of music to lessons for learning. Stephen caters every lesson to individual needs, whether students are preparing to sit exams, pursuing drums as a career, or just wish to play as a hobby.
