Bachelor of Music, VIT Permission to Teach
Teaching music is a balancing act – it’s about making sure the student has fun and enjoys playing, but it’s also about setting pratice goals to make sure students progress in their learning. Learn from a professional teacher who can give you both!
I have taught guitar, piano, saxophone and music theory/composition to students from young children to adults in several working environments, including primary schools, high schools, music schools and private tuition. Lessons are fun and friendly, but with a focus on dedicated practice and making progress. Pop, classical, jazz and other styles are covered. I am familiar with the requirements of both AMEB and VCE, as well as aural and practical techniques for learning. I have a Bachelor of Music from Monash University (2008), specialising in jazz performance, and Victorian Institute of Teaching Registration, as well as a Working With Children card. I currently teach at the Music World school in Malvern, while continuing private tuition and engaging in composition work.
My particular strengths lie in helping students respond to music creatively, by using their knowledge of the instrument together with listening skills to construct solid performances, improvisations, and compositions.
