About Gian Timothy Gho
Tim has been playing the drums for more than 10 years and graduated from his study at the Australian Institute of Music with a Bachelor’s Degree in Contemporary Music Performance in late 2019 after working with some of Sydney’s best drummers; Dave Plenty & Nic Cecire. Since then Tim has been performing and collaborating with a wide range of Sydney bands as a session musician on stage and in the studio playing Pop, Funk, Soul, RnB, Rock, Jazz and World Music.
He started his career as a member of an indie-rock band called “Bowling in Japan”. He has since recorded an EP and has been performing in various venues across Sydney and NSW with multiple outfits. Recently he recorded and performed with a young-upcoming Indonesian Jazz pianist Amanda Suwondo, working as her in-studio drummer for her debut album, “Revisit” and performing alongside her in several events including the SIMA Winter Jazz festival 2020. He has also been working with various singer/songwriters as a studio/session drummer and can be found playing live for these same Artists as they tour their work and appear in performance series’ such as Messiah Studios’ ‘Better in Colour;’ a monthly event that frequently calls on Tim as their in-house drummer (Jazzy K, Biggs 685, Krista Monica).
In addition to gigging around Sydney and spending time in the studio, Tim is a passionate teacher of various instruments, working with children and adults of all ages and levels in group and solo settings as he hopes to build the next generation of thriving Sydney Musicians and Artists.
