I am a current Masters candidate at the Elder Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music Composition (First Class Honours), and I am passionate about providing comprehensive and accessible music education to students of all ages. I have a strong background in performance, having participated in Adelaide-based music festivals such as the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Umbrella Festival since 2015. I have also had original compositions performed by the Australian String Quartet, Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, the Elder Conservatorium Wind Orchestra and the Elder Conservatorium Brass Quintet.
My approach to private tuition is student-based, ensuring that the lessons are tailored to each individual's needs and personal learning style.
After students have grasped the basics of the instrument and have an understanding of introductory music theory, progress may be self-directed through the choices of styles and/or pieces, with new and more advanced theory and knowledge being introduced as they become relevant to the pieces being studied.
My main goal is to teach students how to teach themselves and independently advance their playing abilities.
