Carlo’s Southbank beats

18 Mar 2014

Carlo Canevalli’s life now has great rhythm to it. He is one of the lucky few that work and live here in Southbank, as the drum instructor for Moving into Music, based at St John’s Southgate.

Carlo moved here last year from Italy, via Heidleberg, and was an established musician in his home country.

Carlo said he loved living here in Southbank.

“I like to be near the CBD, but not in the CBD!” he said, adding that he was: “Able to get to the live music scene in Melbourne easily.”

“I would like to stay here for a long time in Southbank,” he added.

While Carlo enjoys the convenience of not needing a car, he did tell Southbank Local News of a time it could’ve come in handy.

“I once performed at a concert in the city and, because I don’t have a car, I had to use a shopping trolley to transport my drums. It was lucky I didn’t have too far to go!” he explained.

“I don’t really need a car here, the only issue is the drum kit. If I played the flute, it would be perfect.”

Carlo is helping establish Moving into Music’s Rhythm Workshops. The workshops are not just for drumming students but any musicians, and indeed anyone, who just wants to learn the basics of rhythm.

Carlo said it could help with playing other instruments, musical performances or even just wanting to become a better dancer.

“Rhythm is arguably the most important part of music. It’s what drives the music, a fundamental component of successful musicality. To some lucky people it comes naturally, others need help to nail it.”

For more information on the new rhythm workshops head to www.movingintomusic.com.au or call Lauris Hing on 9836 2686.
