I graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2015 majoring in performance in French horn. Since then I have gone on to study post graduate psychology at the University of Sydney and am currently completing a research masters through the University of Wollongong Graduate School of Medicine.

I am passionate about music and music education, particularly in rural areas. I am currently the manager of the Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra and am working hard to afford rural kids the same opportunities in music as kids from major metropolitan areas.

I apply fundamentals from my studies in psychology to my teaching practices and like to keep up to date with teaching techniques specific to horn and music generally. I believe it is imperative that students begin with the right technique, and it is the responsibility of parents and caters to find a teacher that can apply fundamental techniques appropriately and with experienced knowledge for that specific instrument.

As well as freelancing for numerous orchestras in Sydney and the Illawarra

I have tutored horn for:

As well as privately tutoring numerous students over the past seven years.

I can offer tuition for :

  • Beginner, intermediate and advanced horn
  • Beginner and intermediate brass

My tuition also offers a strong base in music theory, correct playing technique, both
solo and orchestral performance etiquette, and general musical principals and theory.
