Former Living End Drummer, Travis Demsey now teaching drums at the ARMI in Adelaide, South Australia. Drum lessons, tuition.

Welcoming Travis Demsey to the ARMI Teaching Team

Travis followed his dream of being a drummer and it’s taken him from practicing in his bedroom in Warragul, to being in one of the biggest Australian bands of the last 20 years, The Living End.  Not to mention he is now mentoring and effecting positive change in communities, youth, sport and corporate sectors using his music and background as the vehicle for change.


Travis’ past as The Living End drummer is an enviable history, including world tours, ARIA Awards, front cover of Rolling Stone and Public acclaim as one of Australia’s great live bands. He has toured with and performed alongside bands such as Green Day, AC/DC, The Offspring, and Blink 182. He has played at Big Day Out Festival, Warped Tours in America, East Timor Tour of Duty, and appeared on David Letterman and the Conan O’Brien show. Travis has also worked with world class Producers such as Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Midnight Oil) Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine) and David Kahne (Sublime, Paul McCartney).


Travis has also forged an individual path in the music world as a highly respected drummer and a drum technician. He has played on movie soundtracks, TV commercials, and worked on over 150 albums including The Temper Trap, Kimbra, Delta Goodrem and Cut Copy.


Travis has performed at The Ultimate Drummers Weekend twice, the largest in the southern hemisphere, and scored front cover of Drumscene (Australia’s largest drumming magazine) cementing his standing as a drummer of regard. Whilst in The Living End, Travis started visiting sick children in hospital and befriended a brave young boy battling cancer. When he sadly passed, Travis re-assessed his own life, and decided he wanted to help people using the creative arts and drumming as his way of assisting people. He started working at Whitelion (an organisation that works with youth at risk), running drumming programs and high school empowerment programs.


On leaving Whitelion Travis continued to run and further develop drumming, music and art programs covering leadership, motivation, inspiration, team building and community development. Travis has facilitated these workshops / programs for over 150 high schools, community groups, and corporations such as the AFL Players Association, Beacon Foundation, indigenous and youth organisations such as Narana and Songlines as well as many council community engagement projects.

Working with new Australians, prison and disadvantaged groups has enabled Travis to understand how personal relationships are a crucial factor in creating change.


Travis has just completed a teaching position with Collarts Music College (Melbourne) and is currently working for local government in South Australia as a Youth Music Program Officer.
