General Details

Undertaking Bachelor of Music at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music

Do you love to act? Do you love to sing? Do you love to do both?

Well there is no better time than right now to make a start on some lessons! Give yourself the performance edge and take your artistic talents to the next edge.

I am open to students of almost all ages and ability and strive to pass on my own knowledge in the area of music, drama and theatre. I aim to offer a comfortable, fun and relaxed learning environment in order to help the student get the most out of each lesson. A strong artistic background is not a prerequisite whatsoever. So whether your interests be learning fundamentals such as; how to read music, solfege, basic aural training etc. or diving into complex study such as; interpretation, classical technique or further musical theory studies, you’re well covered.

Also, if you’re simply looking to have some fun singing and acting and enjoying yourself then you are in the right place. Whether it pop, classical, musical theatre or contemporary music, you the possibilities are limitless. Those also interested in learning beginner Guitar and Piano are most welcome to take lessons and get set up with the basics they will need to play both instruments. After all, I believe above all that in whatever we are learning the most motivating and driving thing to work is to enjoy what you’re doing.

I demand no ludicrous expectations of my students, only that they enjoy themselves, work hard and feel encouraged to reach their own personal goals.

Lesson times and venues are negotiable. If possible it would be preferable to either teach from home or in the city at the Melbourne Conservatorium in Parkville. But this of course can be arranged upon booking.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me either via email or feel free to give me a call! :)
