About Anthony Stanislavski

Anthony Stanislavski is a drummer, educator, and author from Melbourne, Australia. He prides himself on his ability to play many different styles of music and devotes himself to his craft by continuing to learn and develop as a musician. At the age of 18, Anthony joined the Australian Army Band as a percussionist and during his seven-year service he toured Australia and overseas. He studied with some of Australia’s most prolific drum teachers including Simon Barker, Graham Morgan, Peter Blick, Dave Beck, and Ronny Ferella. He has a Bachelor of Music Performance from the Victorian College of the Arts.

For the past 5 years, Anthony has taken a deep-dive into the world of brushes and has developed a step-by-step method for teaching what is considered a dying art form. This has resulted in the publication of the book Phrasing and Freedom with Brushes, and has gained international acclaim from the likes of Carter McLean, Florian Alexandru-Zorn and Hudson Music.

Anthony proudly endorses Kentville Drums Kangaroo Hide Drumheads, Gretsch, Bosphorus, Prologix, Promark, Evans and Protection Racket.
