Tuba Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Students can expect to learn from me a way to turn the struggle with your instrument into a flow. As a tuba player I specialise in posture, breathing efficiency and problems to do with articulation to get the best sound out of your instrument with the least effort. As a musician I use a variety of approaches depending on the needs of the student. I teach all brass instruments.

I am a professional musician and Education Queensland registered classroom and instrumental teacher. I have performed as Principal Tuba with the Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney Symphony Orchestras for more than 20 years. I am now teaching all brass and woodwind at a Primary School level and all brass from High School.

My priority as an instrumental teacher is to set up the student for success. Whether starting from a raw beginner or preparing for an audition, with careful assessment of playing technique and practice habits I will customise a program for individual students that focusses on making playing easy, and making playing fun.
