I am a professional musician, composer and music teacher specialising in contemporary music styles. I have over ten years performance experience as a vocalist and guitarist, playing in both original music ensembles and professional jazz/pop cover bands.
I have been teaching music since 2014 and am highly experienced in tutoring both children and adults, from complete beginners to advanced players. I am passionate about helping my students discover and refine their own unique sound, and enjoy seeing them develop each lesson, particularly as they find their own voice and become confident, creative performers. In addition to instrumental and vocal technique lessons I specialise in providing singers with instrumental, music theory and composition lessons, allowing them to improve their songwriting, learn to accompany themselves, and develop the confidence to perform as a soloist or part of a band.
I am a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Music with Honours in Jazz & Improvisation.
I am available for any one / combination of the following:
- vocal lessons
- guitar lessons
- ukulele lessons
- mandolin lessons
- guitar/ukulele/keyboard/musicianship lessons for singers
- composition / songwriting lessons
- aural training / music theory
- jazz improvisation
Lessons are tailored to suit the student’s goals and requirements, and professional worksheets and handouts are provided where relevant.
I teach from my studio in Balaclava, and am also available to travel to surrounding areas if you have a piano. Travel is charged at an extra $10 for lessons in Elwood, St Kilda, Elsternwick, Ripponlea, Caulfield, Brighton, Hampton, Prahran, Windsor, South Yarra and Armadale.
