I am an experienced and in-demand bassist on the Perth music scene. I hold a first-class Honours degree from WAAPA, where I currently lecture bass students and jazz ensembles. I recently received a third consecutive award for the WA Music Industry for Jazz Song of the Year and was a top-ten finalist in the prestigious National Jazz Awards for bass in 2015.
I teach bass to students of all ages and skill levels in jazz and contemporary music styles. Topics covered include theory and technique, ensemble playing, timekeeping, improvisation, learning songs, jazz composition, and developing strong practice methods.
I specialise in double bass, and can help bass guitarists transition to this instrument. I offer double bass lessons as well as standalone music theory.
Students do not need to have an instrument for initial lessons, but should acquire one if they wish to continue. I am open to group lessons and bulk payment discounts if you are interested. I usually teach in the Dianella area - if you require lessons at your house a small call-out fee may apply (depending on distance).
