I am a Music Student studying a Bachelor of Jazz at WAAPA (Perth Music Conservatorium) Ive played in a wide variety of ensembles including the West Australia Youth Jazz Orchestra, while also being taught in both Classial and Jazz environments from a young age. I believe a strong emphasis on personal passion and self motivation is the key to a successful and enjoyable musical journey.
I am willing to teach anyone from a complete beginner up to an intermediate level, as I feel this will be most beneficial for the student.
I've previously studied under Wayne G'froerer who is an Australian renowned Classical Clarinetist providing me with a strong technical foundation in Western Art music.
Studying with Phil Hatton who is regarded around the Perth Jazz scene for his long-spanning career and active presence on the gig scene, and for his contribution to Jazz Education both here and in America.
More recently learning with Jamie Oehlers, who is the head of the Jazz Program at WAAPA and is regarded throughout Australia for his work in Jazz, also winning the World Saxophone Competition.
I also regularly play with a highly regarded Perth Jazz Big Band who play on a monthly basis raising funds for a variety of charities.
