Drew has taught in a number of schools teaching English and a host of Digital Technologies subjects including Multimedia and Programming. He was recognised as Beginning Teacher of the Year in the WA Education Awards in 2012 and achieved Level 3 Classroom Teacher status in 2016. As the Principal Project Officer with the Leadership Institute, Drew continues to develop staff capacity coaching graduate teachers across Western Australia.

Drew maintains training certifications with Apple (2017), Google (2016) and Adobe (2014) in addition to holding a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. His firm belief in the capacity for music enabled by technology to positively affect student wellbeing and engagement led him to pursue a Diploma of Electronic Music Production at SAE Institute (Perth), alongside a Senior Facilitator qualification in the award-winning DRUMBEAT (Developing Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts) program. He is also an Ableton Certified Trainer.

Drew’s research in teacher wellbeing, student resilience and the role of music in STEAM education was published by the Australian Council of Education Leaders (ACEL) throughout 2016 and his work was presented internationally at the Asian Conference on Technology in the Classroom (ACTC) in Osaka, Japan (2013). As Mayhills, he is actively engaged in composition, production and performing original music with the latest technologies.
