Caring and dedicated Music teacher.

Guitar Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

My specialist area is acoustic guitar using written music, tablature, chordal styles and improvisation. My teaching style aims for students to appreciate their achievements and to feel good about their progress in their preferred style. I like students to develop their ability and understanding to a level that provides the skills to support their dreams, whether that's in classical music, contemporary and popular styles, songwriting or music examinations.

I have been working with primary school to elderly students for much of my life as a music teacher with classical, jazz and contemporary guitar as my specialist instrument. I also teach music theory and arranging to individuals and small groups.

As well as my Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Melbourne I have a Master of Education, Diploma of Arts (professional writing and editing), Bachelor of Arts (literature, film and art) and a PhD in literature from LaTrobe University. I also have a Diploma of Family History from the University of Tasmania.

I presently live in a small town in southern Tasmania and I enjoy yoga, walking, travel exploring.

Best wishes for your studies and get in touch if I can help.
