I am a professional trombone player who has just moved to the Sutherland Shire area and am looking for students to teach from my home studio.
Professionally my bio can be found on my website; www.bengurton.com
In the past year I have played for the professional musicals "Singing' In The Rain" and "Dream Lover" as well as recording albums for Olivia Newton-John and John Farnham, Passenger (UK), Mark Vincent and Marina Prior. I have toured Australia with Noel Gallagher and spent a month in China playing for the reality TV show "I Am A Singer" to 300 million people.
I am an artist for Jupiter/XO Brass trombones.
I enjoy playing many styles of music and encourage this in my teaching. I have a belief in teaching a good fundamental technique that can then allow the student to pursue any style of music they enjoy. I have extensive experience in teaching students from beginner to tertiary level including HSC. I also have a strong belief in there being a time in each class to put technique aside and enjoy playing music.
For the last few years I have been the trombone teacher at the Australian Institute of Music and St. Ignatius Riverview.

I look forward to becoming becoming part of the Shire area.
