‘Making Music Learning, Fun, Challenging and Rewarding’

‘move to the beat’

It’s a been a tough year in 2020 for all of us and we’ve somehow managed to come out of it here in Melbourne reasonably well.  Despite COVID,  with your support we were able to deliver our music classes online during 2020. 




Due to COVID restrictions, our ‘face to face’ classes will be on hold.

We hope to resume as soon as restrictions are lifted in Melbourne.



Just letting you know that Beat Factor Music is still providing music lessons at its Teaching Studio, in the Point Cook area, as well as in the Seabrook, Altona suburbs or online if preferred.


Private one on one Music lessons in Drums, Guitar and Bass guitar run from Mondays to Thursdays from 3.00pm to 7.30pm, Day time slots available for night time workers, whilst our Community Drum Group classes run on  Mondays 7.30pm On-line or Tuesdays from 7 pm, face to face classes.

“Rod does a fantastic job at focusing my son. He is always accommodating and my son always comes out with a smile and a new enthusiasm for playing drums”. (Irene-Parent)

Peter_Funk Rock Tune

“I started with Beat Factor Music in 2009 and finished in 2018. Over the course of those years I learnt so much about my instrument, having Rod as a teacher and mentor I learnt so much about drumming and I wouldn’t be the drummer I am now if it wasn’t for Rod” – James Marshall

Drum duet- James & Rod (Student & Teacher)

“Rod is a great music teacher and has so much patience when teaching me how to play drums. He had a great teaching method which incorporated a good balance of both Theory and Practical time during the lessons. His calm and step by step teaching approach was fantastic in helping you to build up confidence behind the kit”. Adam Buruto
