Master of Music, Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Diploma of Arts in Music, Victorian College of the Arts
I am a dedicated provider of one-on-one oboe lessons from beginner to tertiary level, meeting student and parent expectations at the highest level.
I have an extensive and diverse background as an orchestral oboist, working on a freelance and contractual basis over a period of eighteen years with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, the Sydney, Adelaide, Queensland, Tasmanian and Canberra Symphony Orchestras, the Queensland Philharmonic and the State Orchestra of Victoria. These engagements included Principal Oboe as well as Section Oboe and Cor Anglais positions.
I hold a Master of Music from the Queensland Conservatorium, in which I achieved the highest possible grade point average. My Masters research into the interaction of muscles in oboe playing is a strong influence on my playing and teaching.
I have been teaching oboe in a private capacity from beginner to tertiary level since 2008, successfully guiding students through AMEB exams and HSC music recitals. I have also tutored at the Central Coast Conservatorium of Music, Barker College Hornsby and St Ignatius’ College Riverview.
I have completed the certificate in Child Protection Awareness Training of the NSW Department of Education and Communities. I hold a Working With Children Check Number and a National Police Check Certificate.
