Kaboom Percussion is made up of Catherine Betts and Joshua Webster. Both freelance percussionists based in Perth, Western Australia, they have a wide range of musical experience between them, and have been working together for the past 15 years. They both work as performers, instrumental teachers, ensemble directors, and composers, and they play a mean cup!
They have been playing as Kaboom since 2014, and have performed to more than 70,000 students across Australia and New Zealand. Their fun percussion videos have had more than 70 million views and their YouTube channel has more than 300,000 subscribers! They've toured all around Australia and New Zealand, and have worked with music teachers and students in America, Hong Kong, Italy, Azerbaijan, and are excited to be heading to Turkey in 2020.
Catherine and Joshua both have Masters degrees in percussion from the University of Western Australia and the WA Academy of Performing Arts respectively, and both play regularly with the WA Philharmonic and the Perth Symphony Orchestra. When they're not percussing, Cat is cross stitching up a storm, and Josh is practising card tricks and building dioramas.
