I am an experienced music teacher, qualified librarian, music researcher and PhD graduate from the University of Melbourne. I am currently based in Burwood, Melbourne, where I give Suzuki piano and music theory lessons, provide freelance tutoring in music history and essay writing consultations.
I have over 15 years experience teaching piano and theory in my own private practice. My PhD thesis explored the performance and dissemination of chamber-music in Melbourne during the late nineteenth century and resulted in articles that were published in Context and the Victorian Historical Journal. After graduating from my PhD in 2009, my focus turned to teaching and I have since ventured into the world of the Suzuki Method of Talent Education.
My qualifications include a PhD in musicology from the University of Melbourne, a Masters of Music degree and two undergraduate degrees in Arts (professional writing) and Music (BMus), LMusA (Dist.) and A MusA piano, and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Science (information services).
