Shortly after he turned 15, Druiett won the ITEC Young Tuba Artist Competition in Linz in 2012, where he gained international attention for his achievements.
Alongside this, Druiett has studied with the likes of Roger Bobo, Andreas Hofmeir, Rex Martin, Hans Nickel, and currently is under the mentorship of Paul Halwax.
