ABOUT

Shane Carpini on drums

Shane Carpini is a passionate and dedicated Drummer, Percussionist and Teacher based in Sydney Australia.

Coming from a non musical background, Shane started out on the drums on his own accord during his high school years. Always having a love for music, Shane picked up the drums quickly with a strong and determined mind-set. During high school, he joined the school band which saw him play at several festivals and events at a young age.

 

Once graduating from high school, he went on to study music full time at The Australian Institute of Music in Sydney, where he obtained his Bachelor of Music Contemporary Performance. It was here where Shane had the privilege of learning from some of Australia's leading drum teachers and musicians such as: Chris Fields, Nick Cecire, Andrew Evans, Andrew Gander, and Dave Plenty. 

As he is always looking for more ways to improve himself as a musician and gain more knowledge on the drum-set, Shane is currently continuing his studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music completing a Masters of Music Studies majoring in Jazz Performance. 

Over the years Shane has had the pleasure of playing in various bands all across Sydney, which has given him the opportunity of playing at some of Sydney's most sought after venues such as The Metro Theatre, Evans Theatre and The Factory Theatre to name a few.

 

Growing up with four other siblings, Shane has always understood what it means to share. This is evident through his love of teaching and willingness to share with others the art of drumming, and to bring happiness into other peoples lives through the love of music. 

2021 looks like it will be a big year for Shane as the Rock/Hip Hop act Maximon are starting to shift up a gear with new material to be released later in the year. As well as having a new musical venture into the complexity of Indian Rhythms mixed with Jazz Harmonies in the Jazz Fusion group, Oruma.   

Shane has always been an incredibly positive, highly energetic and all around friendly person. This has no doubt been the reason why he has excelled exponentially on the drums, and with his passion and commitment towards music, he continues to strive towards a bright future as a successful musician.
