General Details

BMus (Music Education), AMusA in the subject of Tenor Horn

I am a secondary music teacher currently teaching at a high school in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. I teach all brass instruments, but specialise in trumpet, tenor horn, trombone and French horn.

I have been playing tenor horn for 15 years, piano for 18 years, trumpet for 12 years and have studied french horn with the principal horn player of the Queensland Orchestra.

I am currently the solo tenor horn player with an A grade brass band, and being a section leader at such a high level has helped develop my leadership and teaching skills as I regularly conduct sectionals. I also compete in state and national competitions every year, and have achieved a number of state and national championship titles.

I have extensive brass performance experience, having performed at everything from band gigs, local council functions, to musical theatre pit orchestras, to being a featured soloist at the Sydney Opera House.

I teach students of all ages and abilities, ranging from beginner to advanced and from primary school to adult students. I enjoy passing my musical knowledge onto others and always do so in a friendly and stress-free environment.
