Bachelor of Applied Music (Composition), Masters of Teaching (Secondary)
I teach beginner to advanced levels on violin, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo and up to intermediate levels on viola and bass guitar. My approach to teaching each instrument emphasises proper technique to ensure peak development of learning skills and preventing long term injury.
Coming from a background in classical studies with many years performing contemporary and various folk styles, my lessons offer a wide range of pieces to learn technical skills and diverse knowledge to each instrument.
I believe that an understanding of theoretical knowledge creates a sound foundation for students to further apply their musical skills outside of lessons and private practice.
However as a teacher I respect the student’s goals and and strive to meet the aims of their expectations during our lessons.
