Discipline: Music
Homebase: Kelowna

Zac Gauthier is the founder and teacher at BTN Drum Academy. He is a multi-faceted musician and live performer, having played for various professional bands and recording artists over the past 25 fantastic years of his drumming career. From 2008 to 2013, he worked as a mental health care provider, where he lived life alongside people with behavioural challenges. During his time in the field, it was made very clear that there was a major theme across both his passion for live performance and group-home work: people! And not just anyone, but a huge emphasis on kids. Zac is passionate about using drumming to inspire, challenge and build relationships with young people with a further hope of seeing them move beyond the barriers and challenges that so many young people face today. Zac lives in the breathtaking Okanagan Valley with his wife and daughter.
