A little about myself:
Been playing and teaching professionally for 20+ years
LOVE & teach all styles of music: Jazz, Classical, Blues, Rock, Funk, Brazilian/Latin, Fusion, Contemporary, Metal, World Music...etc
GUITAR (Electric, Acoustic, Nylon String), BASS (4, 5, 6 string & fretless) and DRUMS are my primary performing instruments
Drums and keyboards are used in my lessons to strength rhythmic, harmonic and theoretical concepts, as well as IMPROVISATION
Have worked extensively in music locally and overseas, as performer, teacher (classroom & private), arranger & composer, musical director and session musician.
Besides teaching classes in my own studio, I teach students at various private Schools in Perth.
Comfortable teaching all: kids, teens and adults
I teach at my own home studio north-of-the-river in the Carine Area and if logistics permit, can drop in for home visits
