I am a dedicated, experienced clarinet and saxophone teacher currently located in Newtown (Inner West) and Balgowlah (Northern Beaches).
As an ambitious clarinet player, I received my Associate Diploma of Performance with Distinction in 2013, as well as receiving an A+ mark for AMEB 8th, 7th and 6th grades in previous years. I am currently teaching full time, working towards my Licentiate Diploma and preparing to audition for the Jazz Performance (Vocals) course at the Conservatorium.
Additionally, I played first clarinet in the Sydney Youth Orchestra wind orchestra during 2013, gaining orchestral as well as soloist experience. I have also worked as a nanny, DJ, singer + musician and have played and sung gigs in Europe and Sydney. I completed my high school education at Manly Selective Campus in 2014 with an ATAR of 96.7, and was invited to perform at Encore for an outstanding HSC performance.
I have been running a clarinet and saxophone teaching studio for five years, coaching adults and children using advanced methods which produce well-rounded players – such as breathing-based exercises, relaxation of muscles and learning to create a smooth and balanced tone - utilising imagination and visualisation techniques to ensure these are understood by the student.
My primary teaching focuses include AMEB exam preparation, band playing, jazz, classical, pop and contemporary styles, music theory and musical expression.
