Experience. For over more than two decades, I have taught music at all levels of education, from pre-primary to tertiary. My youngest students are usually nearly 5 years old. In addition to teaching locally at my studio and internationally online, I teach and have taught at many private and public schools throughout Sydney: I am currently Director of Strings at Denistone East Public School.
Language. Although all lessons are in conducted in English, I can assist if you require some instruction in a foreign language such as French, Japanese, Indonesian or Malaysian.
Qualifications. I received my training in music and teaching from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Australia. My highest qualification is a Doctor of Musical Arts, which qualifies me to work in university, college, and conservatory teaching positions. In addition to music, I received training in Adult Learning, Curriculum Design and Online Learning and Teaching—enabling me to be a truly modern and technologically adept teacher for our times.
Professional. Although I am an experienced performing musican, I am primarily a musician who regards teaching as my main profession and priority. I am constantly developing and refining my skills as a teacher and performer for the benefit of my students and the community.
Technology. My teaching studio uses many technologies to promote effective teaching and learning to students. For example, I can provide online lessons to students who do not live locally. In addition, the administration and scheduling of my studio is done electronically, so that you will be able to maintain your schedule, receive lesson reminders and pay for your lessons online. I am able to accept cash, credit and debit cards. Casual lessons available. Discounts for prepaid blocks of lessons.
Results. Over the years, I have helped many of my students to achieve their goals. They have won music scholarships, passed their auditions and attained good results in their examinations. I am experienced in preparing students for AMEB and ABRSM exams.
Location. My dedicated teaching studio is located in Newington. Free street parking is available.
