Private Flute Lessons in Brisbane for any age or level. I love having fun playing music and am excited to share that with others. Lesson environment is fun and encouraging, and I want to help you reach your goals - whether that is sitting AMEB exams or learning to play for your own enjoyment or to be in an ensemble.
I have experience teaching and have completed teaching courses at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University where I am undertaking a Bachelor of Music in flute performance.
Based in St Lucia, I travel to students' homes for lessons.
Teaching since January 2018
Teaches students aged 7+
Jess H. is an energetic, passionate young flautist and 2016 Victoria Chalmers Education Award recipient. After achieving her Associate of Music Diploma in 2015, she became a Bachelor of Music candidate the following year at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Her work with Virginia Taylor, one of Australia’s most renowned flautists and soloist with several Symphony Australia Orchestras, has been incredibly valuable for her development as a musician. Across her study Jess has had further notable development opportunities, including a workshop with Mark Xiao, a past student of Virginia Taylor who now teaches and performs around the world. Most recently, she attended a flute symposium hosted by Michael Cox (BBC Symphony Orchestra) in Adelaide. These activities further inspire her work within her growing private teaching business.
Jess has always loved engaging with the communities around her, in particular with her colleagues at university, both on the stage and, in her down-time, as secretary of Griffith Christian Students; a university student club. Performing with the university ensembles, Jess has had experience playing classical orchestral music, premiering Australian compositions with the wind orchestra and performing with the musical theatre students to present West Side Story (2017) and Company (2018). These shows were particularly exciting as musical theatre music is a favourite for Jess. Further afield, she recently assisted a local school for their musical production, returned to her high school to perform a recital, and performed with Cadenza Chamber Players, an emerging professional chamber ensemble. Trio Vienti is a new woodwind trio in which she performs at functions and events with Jean-Paul Cerdan (clarinet) and Bianca Murphy (flute).
