Sam Gill

  • Bachelor of Music (Jazz Performance)
  • Master of Music (Performance)

I am a saxophonist, clarinettist & composer based in Sydney. I have studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, being awarded a Bachelor of Music (Performance - Jazz) in 2015, Master of Music (Performance) in 2018 and PhD (Doctor of Philosophy - Music) in 2023.

I have been giving instrumental and compositional lessons since 2011, working through primary and high schools, private music schools, and in tertiary education.

I offer my students weekly individual lessons (30, 45 or 60 minutes depending on their level). I enjoy working with students of all experience levels, and catering the lessons to their interests and goals. This can include preparing for school performances, AMEB examinations, auditions, or for leisure!

Lessons can be held either in my home studio or at your home (small travel costs apply depending on your location).

I teach all styles of playing, with a specialist focus on jazz and improvisation. My instrumental lessons focus on:

  • enjoyable and challenging repertoire
  • instrumental technique and sound production,
  • aural training,
  • rhythmic awareness,
  • developing your musicality and creativity.

My composition lessons focus on:

  • developing melodic and harmonic ideas,
  • how to create structure,
  • score presentation,
  • orchestration,
  • the role improvisation can play in the compositional process.
