I began piano lessons at the age of 7. Ever since I was little, deep down I knew I was different. I had a deep and meaningful connection with music that I wanted desperately to express. During high school, I began to take up the woodwind instruments, beginning with flute at the age of 14. Shortly after, I joined the local concert band known as the Mitchell shire Concert Band lead by Eric Andersen which I continue to support to this day. I later took up the clarinet and the saxophone during my final years of high school to further broaden my musical knowledge and versatility. Throughout my schooling, I completed my AMEB on piano and flute up to grade 6. In 2011, I won the school's annual talent contest and was awarded the best pianist and best woodwind player for that year. I pursued my musical education at the University of Melbourne completing a Bachelor of Music in 2014 majoring in Piano performance Throughout my studies, I also was a member of the University's Flute Ensemble for 3 years as first flute. During this time, I have taught and tutored woodwind students in my concert band, helping them so they too can pursue their musical ambitions. I have completed a Masters Degree in Music performance Teaching in and a Graduate Diploma of Education in 2016. I am also a fully qualified, fully registered teacher with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT).
