Heather Prowse

  • Higher School Certificate (2011)
  • Bachelor of Music (Jazz Performance) student at Sydney Conservatorium: University of Sydney

I am available for lessons to students who are:

  • aged 7-18
  • beginners
  • in school bands
  • taking AMEB exams
  • taking high school elective music
  • wanting to learn about jazz theory

I am an experienced trumpet teacher, having been teaching privately and in local schools since 2011. I strive to provide a firm foundation on which to build strong trumpet technique and a passion for making music.

I believe that successful music tutors should be active in making their own music (ie. "practicing what you preach"). I perform regularly across Sydney in big bands, small jazz/contemporary ensembles, at private functions and in theatre productions.

I also have a background in vocal tuition, band directing and musical directing and am available for casual school band directing, music camps and band workshops.

References and ABN available on request.

Current and past teaching positions include: Nicholson Street, Camdenville Public Schools (band director); Annandale North, Beaumont Road, Newtown, Chatswood, St Ives and Lindfield Public Schools, Kincoppal Rose Bay School (trumpet tutor); Young Women's Jazz Orchestra and Turramurra High School Stage Band (volunteer mentor).
