Developing innovative approaches to music education and stressing the importance of creativity and imagination in the learning process. We are all individuals and have a unique learning style. Thoughtful, systematic training leads to individual improvement and artistic development. Perception, language, memory and imagination are vital aspects of learning and a pedagogical approach that takes these processes into account together with individual differences results in efficient and effective learning
I am a music educator with 26 years professional experience. I teach from absolute beginner through to advanced diploma level and all ages from primary school through to adult.
Students of mine have gone on to have professional careers in leading Orchestras and as recording artists in Jazz/Contemporary fields. Students of mine have gained places in Australia’s top youth Orchestras and Ensembles, including SYO, AYO, SBSYO, have gained places in highly regarded Jazz and Classical courses at Australia’s top tertiary institutions, and have received high recognition at high school level.
I try to make the music lessons I give inspiring and original. I aim to encourage all aspects of musical development, from comprehensive instrumental technique to artistic awareness and growth. I teach each student as an individual, after all we are all different! After 26 years I am still trying to discover new teaching styles and techniques. Learning an instrument can be for exam preparation, but it can also just be for fun and relaxation. My teaching studio is based in Lane Cove.
