"It's not often I hear someone who is on the cutting edge of modern drum-set performance. Well, in Australia I heard that person… Grant Collins! When you hear him, be prepared for the ride he will take you on… you will remember it for the rest of your life."

Mike Haid
Modern Drummer Magazine

"Anyone who can play “Three Camps” with their feet deserves attention. Australia’s Grant Collins takes the Bozzio one-man-percussion orchestra to new heights by incorporating advanced Donati/Lang ambidextrous double pedal abilities and amazing four-limb independence. Collins’ drumming skills are world-class. It’s hard to imagine a human acoustic drumkit performer advancing much beyond this level."

Sarah Woods
Arts Hub Australia

"Grant Collins, the virtuoso drummer who made up the other half of the Full Metal Racket performance that night, led a musical revolution. His “multi-timbral soundscapes” shattered any preconceived notions about the artistic capacity of drumming. His compositions were complex and surprisingly narrative. But how can drumming be narrative? I guess it was a had-to-be-there experience!"

GRANT DRUMS ACADEMY is the ultimate way to expand your drumming with new concepts and take you playing to another level.

Focused programs: In-depth, step by step instruction on a range of topics and styles to help you achieve results in your own time. I've designed the courses based off countless hours in the studio and the structure of one-on-one lessons.

Discover your full potential, find your sound and enjoy the process.

Modern Drummer Magazine


My origin as a professional musician was playing in a full time professional covers band. This is a great learning platform for any musician. We had a huge repertoire of songs and I would constantly have to learn new songs every week as the latest hits would come out. I learn’t everything by ear so this taught me a great deal about hearing and understanding what the drummer does in a song and how song writing structures work. I began to realise what the better drummers were doing and how they shaped their drum parts to support the song. I was very meticulous in learning the material and would sit down with headphones, going over each bar, so that I had every single hi hat opening, ride bell and other parts so I could be as close to the original drum part as possible.

As I progressed with my learning, I started looking at doing formal studies to advance my musical skills further. I started to audition at conservatories and universities. Unfortunately my music theory skills were well down in comparison to my drumming skills so I was unsuccessful in my first attempts. I then started to get music theory lessons and after 3 years of auditioning, I was accepted to do my Bachelor of Music. I’ve since gone on to become a Doctor of Music so I have the formal qualifications as well as my on the road experiences to relate to both sides of the spectrum. I’ve also been a conservatorium lecturer and have written course curriculums for subjects so have the skills and know how to structure a course. 

As well as that, I’ve travelled around the world doing concerts and also for my sponsors doing hundreds of clinics, masterclasses and percussion festivals over the past 25+ years. I’ve also done countless hours of private tuition for a wide range of students doing everything from playing in local bands to going to university to winning national drum competitions.

I’ve spent an innumerable number of hours exploring and discovering this awesome instrument and love to share not only the what, but also the how and why on all things drums. I love the creative aspect of music and like to look at ideas from a different perspective. Doing this helps us to discover alternative ways to play things and leads to finding your own individual voice on the instrument. I’m super excited about putting these programs together and would love to be able to transform and inspire your personal music journey.
