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 double bass to students of all ages and skill levels in jazz and contemporary music styles, as well as beginner-level classical music. Topics covered include theory and technique, ensemble playing, timekeeping, improvisation, learning songs, jazz composition, and developing strong practice methods.
I also teach bass guitar and 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).
