Hello! I'm Justin. I teach Wednesday afternoons/evenings in Ngunnawal though other afternoons are possible if requested.

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Music Education with Honours and a Bachelor of Jazz Performance, both completed at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. My teaching is also informed and invigorated by my extensive performance work. I have experience in jazz, classical and contemporary styles and regularly perform in small and large jazz bands, funk bands and contemporary bands. I have been teaching clarinet and woodwind and leading ensembles for about fifteen years and have felt that what I have done has been of a high standard and well received by students, parents, teachers, and audiences. I currently teach at Emmaus Christian College, Brindabella Christian College and St Edmund's College. At these last two I conduct bands and instrument tutorials. I am the musical director of Connexion Big Band and Spectrum Big Band.

I am keenly passionate about music teaching and music performance. I routinely review my teaching practice and resources with an eye to achieving the best outcome for my students. To this end, for example, I have been developing resources for a website to aid my tuition (which I will invite you to visit www.thewoodwindcompanion.com ) while I write reports each term to keep students up to date.

Topics of study for lessons include beginner, intermediate, advanced; primary, secondary, university, and mature-age; saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone), flute (and piccolo), and clarinet (plus bass clarinet); jazz improvising, repertoire, arranging, composing and style; classical including AMEB exams and theory; contemporary styles including funk, reggae, rock, folk, etc; maintenance, buying, and gear. I'm establishing myself in a new town and would love to teach some new people who are keen to learn, as well as get some advice about living in the capital.
