Thank you for finding my profile.
I am taking a break until mid 2020 and won’t be taking on any new studnents due to child rearing. I am pregnant with a second child!! Please contact me only if you are interested in lessons after mid 2020.
Friendly, enthusiastic and dedicated.
I will ask you what your goals are (leisure, AMEB exams, Scholarships, school bands/orchestras, auditions) and tailor each lesson to suit your needs so you can achieve your goals.
Being a pianist as well as an oboist, I will be able to play the piano accompaniment parts during the lesson which will help when preparing for various solo recitals and auditions as you will be able to hear and learn how to play as an ensemble.
If you are transferring from another instrument, my experience teaching other wind instruments will help in making the transition easier as I can relate to each instrument and the differences in technique.
I am very confident at what I do, and I have been recognised as the most outstanding woodwind teacher in 2015 by the AMEB, receiving an AMEB Teachers award under "Woodwind - Preliminary to Grade 6” category. In 2016 and 2018 I was also ranked as "Top 5 Woodwind teacher - Preliminary to Grade 6" by the AMEB.
For those that don't have an instrument I have a few oboes available for rental.
