I am a graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music majoring in classical performance on Bassoon. I studied various courses including ensemble studies, pedagogy studies, performance, history and conducting.
I have performed at various venues around Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney including the Sydney Opera House, Hamer Hall (Melb.), Queensland Conservatorium Theatre, QPAC Concert Hall and the Old Museum Building. I have also performed with artists such as Tina Arena, James Morrison and Mirusia Louwerse.
For both 2017 and 2018 I worked as an activity instructor at PGL centres in the UK working with children aged 7-12 primarily. This experience developed my passion of primary aged education and given me a solid experience base for teaching young pupils.
