Bachelor of Fine Arts (Music)
My name is Jeremiah, I’m a professional trumpet player currently finishing my music degree in Jazz improvisation at the Victorian College of The Arts. I play trumpet and sing in a jazz band called The Willie Wagtails (www.thewilliewagtails.com.au), and have been playing trumpet for over 15 years.
Here I am playing and singing a song about Old Melbourne Town: https://vimeo.com/thewilliewagtails/oldmelbournetown
And another song about camping:
I’m very interested in Australian music and spend a lot of my time touring around Victoria and interstate to play at Folk festivals and musical gatherings.
I teach from my studio in Collingwood and charge $50 per hour for lessons. Also happy to travel near or far, and can probably recommend other teachers in your area.
I reckon enjoyment and creativity are really important with music lessons. So I keep it varied and will include stuff on trumpet technique, rhythm, singing, jamming skills, composing and listening to good music. Can also teach beginner trombone, guitar, banjo, ukelele and singing.
I’m good with adult beginners, kids, and intermediate players who want to learn advanced improvisation techniques. (Have a current working with children check).
Hope to hear from you!
