A classically trained musician, I perform in a wide variety of musical contexts, from classical recitals to blues bands to musicals in the theatre.

Music has always been my passion, and I can’t imagine life without it. I knew I wanted to be a musician, and I haven’t looked back ever since!

I’m passionate about teaching music and I aim to give my students a solid musical foundation including listening, theory and aural skills, so that they are well prepared to launch into any musical genre with a running start.

I believe in allowing my students to take ownership of their own learning, and I encourage my students to choose some of their own repertoire, write their own music and have a go at a wide variety of musical genres.

Teaching Info

I have a Bachelor of Music (majoring in Saxophone) from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (University of Melbourne), and a Masters of Music Performance Teaching, which is a degree specifically for this kind of instrumental teaching.

I have sucessfully sent students through AMEB and ANZCA exams.

I have nine years of continuous experience teaching in schools. I have also written my own Guitar Method Book, which I like to use with children where appropriate.

Please don’t hesitate to email me for any further information.
