About Me

Doctor of Musical Arts (Sydney), Master of Arts (UWA), Bachelor of Music (Amsterdam), Bachelor of Music with Honours (Wales)

Due to the coronavirus, online lessons are now available on Zoom! Zoom is one of the top teleconferencing softwares and is available for free. Get in touch with me for your free 15-minute online interview to secure a spot in my studio.

Experience. For over more than two decades, I have taught music at all levels of education, from pre-primary to tertiary. My youngest students are usually nearly 5 years old. In addition to teaching at my studio, I am Head of Strings at Mowbray Public School and Director of Strings at Denistone East Public school.

Qualifications. I received my training in music and teaching from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Australia. My highest qualification is a Doctor of Musical Arts, which qualifies me to work in university, college, and conservatory teaching positions. In addition to music, I received training in Adult Learning, Curriculum Design and Online Learning and Teaching—enabling me to be a truly modern and technologically adept teacher for our times.

Professional. Although I am an experienced performing musican, I am primarily a musician who regards teaching as my main profession and priority. I am constantly developing and refining my skills as a teacher and performer for the benefit of my students and the community.

Technology. My teaching studio uses many technologies to promote effective teaching and learning to students. For example, I can provide online lessons to students who do not live locally. In addition, the administration and scheduling of my studio is done electronically, so that you will be able to maintain your schedule, receive lesson reminders and pay for your lessons online. I am able to accept cash, credit and debit cards. Casual lessons available. Discounts for prepaid blocks of lessons.

Results. Over the years, I have helped many of my students to achieve their goals. They have won music scholarships, passed their auditions and attained good results in their examinations. I am experienced in preparing students for AMEB and ABRSM exams.

Location. My dedicated teaching studio is a 6-minute walk from Meadowbank Station. Free street parking is available.
