Music Theory Lessons
As a multi-instrumentalist, singer and student undertaking their Bachelor of Music (Honours) at the University of Queensland, I have a great depth of knowledge on music theory. I personally believe that developing a good basis of theory is the key to becoming successful within any branch of music. I also believe that anybody is capable of learning music theory and I would be excited to help students realise their potential.
I teach using methods and materials I have gained from singing, piano and clarinet lessons and exams, orchestras and choirs, music classes and more recently, my university studies.
Ultimately, my goal is to ensure my students are not only learning and developing their skills and technique, but enjoying themselves because there’s really no point in music if you can’t find joy in it.

Hi! My name is Megan B. and I’m incredibly enthusiastic about not only music, but teaching as well.
I am currently a Bachelor of Music (Honours) and Bachelor of Education student at the University of Queensland where I major in classical clarinet.
I have attained many AMEB qualifications including my Grade 7 Clarinet, Grade 5 Saxophone, Grade 5 Classical Voice, Grade 4 Theory, and Grade 1 Piano.
In addition to this, I also got the dux award in years 11 and 12 for music and the junior and senior music performance awards in years 10 and 12.
Not only am I very experienced within solo playing, but I also have experience within ensembles playing with the Queensland Youth Orchestra, the Young Conservatorium and singing with the Australian Girls Choir, as well as 7 ensembles within my high school, St Rita’s College.
Most importantly however, is obviously whether or not I would be able to teach your child. As a Music Education major, teaching music is my ultimate goal in life and I already have a large amount of experience for a first year uni student.
In my final three years of school I was expected not only to lead the St Rita’s College Clarinet Ensemble in performances, but also in rehearsals. Initially I found this quite challenging as we were all similar ages and I wanted rehearsals to be fun and productive but eventually I found a balance and the experience was invaluable, and our clarinet ensemble won a gold all three years at the Queensland Catholic College’s Music Festival.
For two weeks I partook in a work experience program at my old primary school, St Columba’s Wilston where I got to work with the music teacher Celia Dodds and learn how she taught children of varying ages and abilities in music.
Last but not least, as I have played both within the AMEB system and many different orchestras of varying ability through from primary school as a beginner and now as a University student. I have experienced what your child is learning and can relate to them fully which I believe will help them greatly.
Overall, I am a hardworking, passionate musician who absolutely loves what she does and could not be more excited to potentially share the magic of music with as many people as possible.
