Simon Carter

  • B. Mus. (Hons) - Monash University

I have taught trombone, piano and theory to students ranging in age from 5 – any age in high schools, primary schools, specialist music schools and privately since 2008. Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of the individual students, and are taught in a caring and professional manner. I have experience tutoring students undertaking VCE music and as a result I have a thorough understanding of the VCE syllabi.

Some professional background:
Performing and teaching music for around 12 years.
Completed a Bachelor of Music and an Honours Degree specialising in jazz and popular studies in 2012.
Part of the degree included an intensive course with study taking place at NYU.
Contracted as a member of the show band on P&O Cruise Line’s Oceana.
Chosen by Monash University to perform at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival with international artists such as Terence Blanchard, Mike Nock, and John Abercrombie.
Experience recording in studio for the Channel 10 documentary ‘Love Your Sister’ soundtrack.
Experience recording on an album with George Garzone (USA) under the record label Jazzhead.
Held a jazz residency in the city for 3 years performing with a number of Melbourne based jazz musicians.
I currently teach one-on-one tuition as well as leading ensembles across three different schools in Victoria and feel very grateful I get to spend my days discussing a great love of mine.

These lessons can take place via Zoom or in person when available. Feel free to contact me for further information.
I'd love to hear you play.
