Andrew Hewitt - "Australia's most inspirational drummer"
Introducing Andrew Hewitt
Andrew Hewitt, dubbed as "Australia's most inspirational drummer", is starting to become one of the most talked about drummers on the national and international drumming and disability communities.
He was born with Cerebral Palsy, which restricts movement in his arms and legs, which forces him to use a wheelchair. This has made drumming a very serious challenge.
Despite this, over the past 20 years Andrew has worked successfully as a Performing Artist, Drum Teacher, Drum set Clinician, Motivational Speaker, Workshop Facilitator, and Disability Advocate.
Andrew is an Australian facilitator for TRAP'D (The Rhythmic Arts Project Downunder), an educational program using hand drums and percussion, which is based on the The Rhythmic Arts Project, which was founded in 1997 by Eddie Tuduri in Santa Barbara, California.
He is also on the board of directors of Can-Do Musos, a global voice which has been established to support artists with challenges from all over the world.
In 2014, Andrew was nominated for the prestigious "Australian of the Year" award, and although he didn't make it as a finalist, it was still a huge honor for Andrew.
In January 2015, Andrew presented on a panel with Can-Do Musos members in the HOT Zone at The NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.
Currently, Andrew is an Australian endorsed artist for Pearl Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Vic Firth Drumsticks, and Remo Drum Heads and Percussion.
