About Steve Bremner:
I am a freelance musician, stage tech and music educator with vast experience in composition, arranging, producing and engineering. I have worked in all corners of the NZ music industry, from AC/DC & Black Sabbath shows to arranging anthems for the 2011 Rugby World Cup (Ireland & Wales). My touring has taken me throughout New Zealand, as well as Australia, Europe, Japan and Mexico.

First and foremost I am a student of the great Bud Jones. Bud played drums for Shirley Bassey and The Bee Gees, as well as being a member of the NZSO Percussion Section for 40 years. But Bud’s true passion was teaching, and consequently many of his students have gone on to achieve great success, including; Tom Larkin (Shihad), Ross Burge (Sir Dave Dobbyn/The Mutton Birds/Rodger Fox Big Band), Chris O’Connor (Don McGlashin/The Mockers), and Lance Philip (Rodger Fox Big Band/Dancing with the Stars/ NZSM). Bud’s teaching was centred around the Benjamin J Podemski Snare Drum Method, and I use this as the core of my teaching method. However I have allowed this method to evolve over the years, influenced heavily by my experiences in both the orchestral and rock industries. I encourage students to have as broad an approach to playing as possible, and endeavour to prepare them all playing situations. Some core principles include; placing to a click, learning to both read music and play by ear, and developing time/ internal groove, as well care and maintenance of their equipment. Those students that are keen will learn to play both right and left handed, giving much more ability to navigate the drum kit.
