BACHELOR OF APPLIED ARTS (MUSIC), WHITIREIA COMMUNITY POLYTECHNIC
Teaches: Bass Guitar
Having successfully completed his bachelor of applied arts (music) in 2013 Callum's love of the bass formed when he was 17 and he began to jam with his brothers in the basement of the family home in Nelson. He developed an interest in funk and classic rock that has now grown into an appreciation for all music genres. Since studying, Callum has been performing in various bands around Wellington, performing a variety of originals, funk, rock, jazz and pop genres. In 2015, The Julie Lamb band, a project Callum has been involved in since 2012, achieved no. 10 on the New Zealand album charts. The band also gets airtime on radio stations throughout Europe and the USA. Callum enjoys teaching at studio Sasada and describes his teaching style as fun, tailoring his lessons to the students needs, allowing them to grow and develop their technical skills while also being able to give real world advice on playing and performing in public.
