I am a passionate musician and guitar tutor with several years of experience teaching students from ages 10 - adult. A highly skilled guitarist adept in theory, composition, arrangement and performance practice; I can teach in standard notation as well as in tablature. I also have experience in digital composition and recording processes.

Overall, I approach my tuition with each student as a unique and bespoke learning experience, predicated on fostering confidence and self motivation in order to help them develop a lifelong love and commitment to music.

I hold a Bachelor's of Music with Distinction from the University of New South Wales, and am also an active musician performing in Sydney based indie-pop band Darling Street.

I have built my clientele over the years through positive word-of-mouth feedback from current students / parents, and now that I have relocated to the Southern Highlands of NSW I am eager to continue my passion through online teaching via 'lessons Australia'.

Here is a broad breakdown of my teaching ethos:
● Develop a personalised and results-driven teaching method that fosters self-confidence and
motivation in prospective students.
● Cover a wide range of topics including basic skills, theory, performance practice, improvisation and composition, to help mould a holistically minded musician.
● Curate engaging online tutoring lessons via zoom or other video conferencing
platforms, designed to maintain sustained focus and healthy curiosity.
● Maintain long-lasting relationships with my students to help them grow into their own talented and inspired musician.
