General Information

Tēnā koutou katoa,

My name is Dylan and I am currently in my second year as a teacher at TAPS.

I was born in South Africa, but migrated with my parents at the age of 11, after which we settled in a beautiful little town called Taumarunui. It was there that I developed my passion for music, which allowed me to gain entrance to (and graduate from) the University of Otago, studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Music with a focus on drums.

In 2017, I decided a change of pace was necessary, and enrolled with the University of Waikato to become a teacher.

My aim is to bring my passion for music and digital technology to the kids, and hopefully inspire some young minds.

Nga mihi
