Teaching since 1992
Teaches special needs
Teaches students aged 8+
I have been a music teacher for 25 years and worked both privately and in schools across all age levels. I have had the chance to work with adults as well as young primary aged children, from all backgrounds and learning expectations.
As a trumpet player, I continue to play regularly in big bands and small jazz groups. My education was in classical music, but in the last 5 years, I have explored more and more jazz and improvisation.
I have taught VCE Music and tutored students both individually as well as in groups and have valuable insights into the theory as well as the practical components at this level.
I approach every student and learning situation with a clear idea of what the student wishes to achieve, building on their existing skills and developing new knowledge and skills thoroughly and confidently. I am a firm believer in establishing strong relationships and listening to my students openly and honestly. I have a good sense of humour, am well organised and professional in all aspects of my work.
