General Details

I am a jazz trombonist based in Perth, Western Australia, currently in my 4th year studying towards a Bachelor of Jazz Performance from the WA Academy of Performing Arts. Apart from my passion for jazz, I also share a strong appreciation for all other musical genres.

I currently perform with the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO), as well as the Oz Big Band. Through my involvement with WAYJO and WAAPA, I have been privileged to work with jazz greats such as Fred Wesley, Vince Jones, John Morrison, Ed Partyka and many more. I have also been involved in Musical exchange programs, with New York University’s Summer Jazz program, as well the SHOWA school of Music in Tokyo, Japan.

Prior to studying at WAAPA, I was a graduate of Sacred Heart College Sorrento, where I studied WACE music, achieving the college academic excellence award for top music student. I was involved with a number of the school musical groups including Senior Band, Swing Band, Jazz Quartet and various rock bands, which competed successfully in Catholic Performing Arts Festivals, winning several shields.

I would be pleased to offer private Trombone lessons to anyone from beginner to intermediate of any age for any genre. My rates are $30 per half-hour for lessons at my house, I can come to you if that is preferred however I would need to charge an extra $5-10 depending on distance for travel time/ expenses.
