My experience includes 17 years as a multi-instrumentalist (primarily saxophone, clarinet and flute), bandleader, composer, conductor and instrumental tutor, in a range of musical settings in primary and high schools. These include individual lessons, small ensembles, concert bands, stage bands, high school stage bands and sectional workshops in band camps.
Outside of teaching I am a well established professional saxophonist, performing regularly with some of Sydney’s most prominent musicians. My experience and knowledge of music started in the form of classical saxophone, completing all the classical grades. In 2005 I graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, under the teachings of some of the most distinguished musicians in Australian jazz; Cole Lachnan, Mark Walton, Dale Barlow, Craig Scott, Mike Knock, Darryl Pratt and Judy Bailey, just to name a few. In 2008 I spent time in New York, where I had private lessons with George Garzone, David Binney and Donny McCaslin.
