I love teaching because it’s a different way to meet new people and connect with fans. Teaching is intimate and fun and you might even learn something yourself!

Drum Technique

Matthew Parkitny knows how to hit his drums, and he wants to share his ways with you! Learn the right techniques for the sound you want.

Matthew is the drummer of Australian rock band, Hands Like Houses. He's been drumming since 2006 and has a passion for it. He particularly loves to play his beats a little different live to mix things up. 

Taking on the music industry with their own unique sound, Hands Like Houses has spent the last 3 years bringing their powerful, high-energy brand of music and live shows to an increasing fan base across Australia, the US, Europe and the UK. 

Their distinctive style launched them onto the Billboard Heatseekers chart at number 2, and number 141 on the Billboard Top 200, garnering widespread acclaim and legions of devoted followers. Since then, Hands Like Houses have been hitting the road hard. They’ve crossed the US several times over, trekked across Europe, Canada, and the UK, as well as touring on their home soil back in Australia - and the road has only been getting bigger and better. In 2013 their second album Unimagine debuted at number 37 on the overall billboard charts, number 6 on the Indie charts, and number 3 of the Hard Rock charts where the band took their well-deserved place alongside classic icons such as Black Sabbath and new age superstar Taylor Swift.
