I am a highly accomplished teacher who graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 1983, with a Diploma in Music Teaching, and Certificate of Teaching. My method of teaching incorporates theory of music, technique, repertoire (any style), aural tests and sight reading.
If students wish to formalise their musical abilities by examinations through the AMEB, I am well qualified to prepare them. Students under my instruction have attained high gradings in AMEB examinations and have confidence with playing in small to large groups.
I encourage my students to perform as much as possible, at school, eisteddfods, or concerts as part of an ensemble, or as a soloist. This experience enhances their sight reading ability and overall confidence and enjoyment.
I have many years of orchestral experience, having performed with the Canberra Symphony orchestra, Kuringai Philharmonic Orchestra, Willoughby Orchestra and various other groups. Currently performing with Shoalhaven Chamber Orchestra and Savoy Ensemble.
