I teach all ages and abilities with an understanding that everybody learns differently. Lessons will be based around the student’s goals and work flow.
For the past 8 years I have taught at Hale School in Perth, WA before relocating to Melbourne. I have experience in preparing students for exams, tertiary auditions, recording sessions and shows.
I also have experience in recording and music production. Lessons can include learning how to record, program and sample drums so students can create their own music.
I have a current Working with Children Check Clearance and Police Clearance.
I have toured Australia and overseas both as a bandleader and solo performer. I have also played at major festivals including Big Day Out, Splendour in the Grass and The Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
My education includes a Bachelor of Music (Major Jazz Performance) from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. I have also studied abroad at the School for Improvisational Music NYU, New York
Skills and concepts we may cover include; playing grooves, reading music, technique, coordination, time and feel, listening, transcribing, recording, programming beats, sampling, playing with a band, improvising and recording.
Currently I teach from my studio in Brunswick East.
I have a decade of teaching experience and passion for education.
