Spaces available at my 2020 flute studio in beautiful West End by the Brisbane river. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like to begin your musical journey - I'd love to learn about your goals.
I offer lessons on flute and piccolo to all levels of players - absolute beginners, advanced players, and everything in between! I am based in West End where I run my studio. I teach a flexible curriculum, ultimately designing my lessons based on your individual needs. We're all unique artists with unique learning styles, so I have an adaptable and encouraging philosophy.
My experience as a piccolo player and my Masters education allows me to offer specialised lessons on the instrument. Piccolo lessons are appropriate for high school or conservatory students who play flute regularly and wish to improve their fundamentals on the piccolo. I can help you prepare for upcoming auditions, orchestral/band performances, or help you build up a solo repertoire. We will study the remarkable differences in tonal quality and intonation on the instrument and discover how the fundamentals of flute playing can both help and hinder your piccolo playing.
A few of the other key focuses in my curriculum include postural awareness and aural training. I believe it's imperative to set up students for injury-free futures - I implement body awareness techniques in my class so that students know how play both sitting and standing with correct posture and alignment. I address a wide scope of performance practices and techniques to encourage a well-rounded and confident musician, with an emphasis on building and maintaining a healthy mind and body between all those notes.
It's important that you're familiar with your child's (or your own) teacher and that you get along and share similar values. I'd love to chat about your expectations, offer some guidance, and learn what your immediate and future goals are! Let's work together to build your ideal musical future. If you'd like a free consultation, do get in touch!
