I am an experienced and in-demand bassist on the Perth music scene. I hold PhD and first-class Honours degrees from WAAPA, where I am a full-time jazz/contemporary music lecturer teaching bass, ensemble skills, business skills, and Logic Pro. I was awarded the Vice Chancellor's Sessional Staff Excellence Award in 2021 for my teaching at WAAPA. Other accolades include:
—2022 APRA Professional Development Award finalist
—2020 Freedman Jazz Fellowship nominee
—2015 National Jazz Awards semi-finalist
—4x WAM Jazz Song of the Year winner (2012–2014 and 2019)
I teach double bass, bass guitar, and music theory, and offer tutoring for small ensembles.
My time for private lessons is limited but please do contact me and I will try to accommodate where possible! Please also get in touch if you're interested in pursuing study at WAAPA - we'd love to hear from you and have some great opportunities coming up.
