I am a Melbourne-based teacher offering lessons in oboe, violin (fiddle) and music theory.
I am a specialist in folk/traditional music, having studied on the folk degree at Newcastle University (UK), with thorough knowledge of English traditional music, also playing in the American, Scandinavian, Scottish and Irish traditions. I am also a confident classical musician, teaching orchestral and solo classical repertoire.
Ad-hoc lessons and short-term courses can be arranged, as well as regular lessons. Day time or evening lessons are available.
I have experience teaching adults and children in a variety of different settings, and extensive experience working with people with additional needs.
I have recently moved to Melbourne from the UK, on previous visits to Australia I have taught English folk music and dance at festivals and workshops across the country.
Lessons are individually tailored to the learner, my main aim is to make the process of learning music fun, and develop the skills you want to learn. Any skill level can be catered for.
I am DBS checked, the UK equivalent of a Working With Children Check.
