General Details

Bachelor of Music (Performance - Clarinet) Qld Conservatorium, Graduate Diploma in Education (University of Queensland), AMusA (AMEB)

I am a passionate, dedicated, and innovative piano and clarinet teacher based on the south side of Brisbane. I can prepare students of all ages for any AMEB Exams, auditions and competitions, and playing for leisure, as well as theory and improvisation. I am also a piano accompanist for exams, recitals, and performances.

I am a Qld Conservatorium of Music alumnus (BMus – Perf, Clarinet), and have studied clarinet with Paul Dean, Floyd Williams, and Brian Catchlove. I have also studied advanced level piano with Kevin Power, and have had occasional coaching in classical voice with Margaret-Baker Genovesi. I am also an alumnus of the University of Queensland, holding a Graduate Diploma in Education (GradDipEd) specialising in choral and instrumental education. I have excellent knowledge of school music syllabuses and curriculum as I’m also an instrumental and classroom music teacher in QLD schools.

I’ve performed with various chamber ensembles, have premiered music of emerging composers, and have played with the Australian International Symphony Orchestra Institute in Tasmania, as well as the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra as Principal Clarinet from 2011-2013.

In addition to my instrumental performance experience, I’m a substitute soprano for The Schola of St Stephen Cathedral Brisbane. I also sing in and manage duo ELAN Sopranos, performing in various corporate, charity, and private functions, events, and concerts. I’m also a composer and arranger, and music typesetter.
