I’m a composer, alto saxophonist, piano teacher, choir conductor and singer.
I teach various instruments, as well as theory, aural skills, composing and songwriting.
Most of all, I work with students to pursue their musical passion, while offering new ideas to further creativity and skill development.
In 2009 I completed a Bachelor of Music at Melbourne University, studying saxophone and teaching.
I have been playing saxophone for about 17 years. I studied mostly classical repertoire but I’m also familiar with jazz and pop styles. Over the last 2 years I’ve played with a hip hop group performing at festivals around Australia. I’ve had solo and ensemble experience in classical and jazz settings, including big band, wind ensemble and chamber music. Additionally I have been playing in bands for about 10 years.
I’ve played piano for over 20 years. My teaching is suited to beginner classical and modern piano, and intermediate pianists wishing to play popular styles or improvise.
I also play clarinet, descant and treble recorders, flute, and drums, to a good standard. I am a competent singer with an excellent sense of pitch. If you’d like additional help with these instruments I can teach the basics.
