Simon Pauperis - Professional Double Bass / Electric Bass specialist.
With almost 20 years of music related experience and over 10 years as an instrumental teacher, I am confident in my ability to help you achieve your musical goals. My lessons encompass a wide variety of musical styles focusing on technique development and solo / ensemble skills. I encourage students to prepare for AMEB (Preliminary to LMusA) and VCE Examinations, but also welcome students learning for enjoyment!
I am a graduate of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Professional Performance Program (2013) and hold a Bachelor of Music (Honours) and Graduate Diploma of Performance from the ANU Canberra School of Music (2010). In 2016 I travelled to Austria to study at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna as a String Soloist in the International Summer Academy.
As a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to hold a number of professional roles including Double Bass Teacher at Huntingtower School, Double Bass / Electric Bass Teacher Queenwood School for Girls Mosman, Double Bass Teacher at Geelong College and Double Bass / Electric Bass Pre-Tertiary Lecturer at Canberra School of Music. I currently play casually with various symphony orchestras including Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria and The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.
