Graduating from the Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Music in 1997, he was named 'Winner of the Australian Academy of Music Composition competition' during his first year of study. In '96, Grant's success in 'Australia's Best Up and Coming Drummer Competition' in Melbourne, led to worldwide sponsorships with major cymbal and drum companies, and also to clinics and workshops along the entire east coast of Australia. Grant also has a teaching studio in Brisbane and is Associate Lecturer in Jazz Percussion at the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music.

Drum and cymbal setup[edit]

The kit used by Grant is Australia's biggest drum kit setup.[citation needed] He currently endorses Pearl drums and Zildjian cymbals,[citation needed] and uses a Pearl Masters MMX kit when performing live. He has also designed his own signature sticks made by Vic Firth.[citation needed]
