I am a teacher of thirty-five years experience in both schools and my own private studio. I am experience in preparing students for AMEB, Trinity, ANZCA and VCE exams and also happy to teach students who prefer a more informal approach. I can accompany students up to AMEB Grade Five standard and regularly incorporate this aspect in lessons. I am a professional free-lance cellist, having been a regular cellist with Orchestra Victoria for many years and still perform with the Australian Pops Orchestra. I am also a dedicated chamber musician, co-founder and Principal Cellist of the Peninsula Chamber Musicians, with whom I've also appeared as a soloist. I'm also currently one half of Duo Aquarius, a classical guitar and celloduo. I charge $80 per hour payable by Internet Banking during COVID19 restrictions and observe strict social distancing and hygiene in my private studio.
