Ross McCallum is an Australian drummer and percussionist best known for his educational YouTube channel, Cajon Groove Guide.
Ross McCallum began regularly uploading video lessons to YouTube in late 2011. In just under 1 year, Ross had built an audience of 1000 subscribers. In the following year, that number multiplied to 5000. The continuing philosophy behind his content is to upload and share new ideas while they’re fresh and learn with the drumming community on the whole.
“For as long as I’ve had access to the internet, I have considered myself to be part of the YouTube generation of music students. I took drum lessons during high school but found myself most inspired by the videos I could watch over the weekend. The endless supply of new ideas and things to practice on YouTube is what hooked me right from the beginning.”
In 2016, Ross McCallum is expanding his reach into the music industry of Tokyo, Japan. Collaborating with various local musicians, Ross hopes to push his cajon playing into an international career.
