BMusEd USYD (The Sydney Conservatorium of Music)
NOTE: I am based in Spain until late 2017
I have 20 years experience playing guitar. I have been teaching guitar and general music classes in government schools, community colleges and private studios for the last 6 years.
My specialty in Flamenco Guitar, Spanish Classical and Latin American guitar styles. I currently work as an accompanist for a leading Flamenco dance company in Sydney. My principal study at university was in Classical and Latin American guitar styles.
As an aside from this, I am well versed in many other genres of music. I have been an active member of several rock bands and have experience playing in orchestras, stage bands and for commercial artist session recordings.
I aim to give students an in depth understanding of guitar and to make lessons engaging and challenging. I employ a variety of pedagogies that encourage reading music, composing and working by ear.
I firmly believe in teaching students what they wish to learn in conjunction with complementary exercises and repertoire in order to balance student self motivation with technical and theoretical foundation
