Through teaching, I strive to provide players with the musical and technical skills needed to develop their own unique voice. I tailor learning strategies and repertoire to suit each individual student’s requirements and ambitions. School-age students aged 8+ and adults are welcome. Preparation for AMEB examinations is optional.
I have 18 years experience as a professional performer and teacher across solo, chamber, orchestral and contemporary music. I specialise in classical music, contemporary art music and commercial performance. I also perform regularly with Brazilian and jazz bands. In 2013, I won the prestigious national APRA-AMCOS Art Music Award for Excellence by an Individual for Dedication and Commitment to Australian Art Music and Chamber Music.
