I hold a Bachelor of Music in Performance from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, where I majored in French Horn, finishing with a final GPA of 6.2/7. I currently teach French Horn at Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie), all Brass at Coomera Anglican College and Trumpet/Trombone through an online music school. I periodically perform with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and have played with Camerata, Ensemble Q, and both the Australian and Queensland Youth Orchestras. On a personal level I relocated from Sydney to Brisbane for Tertiary studies where I have now happily settled. I have three older brothers and a younger sister and live in the South Brisbane area, which is where I teach from my private studio. In my spare time I enjoy fishing and playing sport.
It is my firm belief that strong music education and effective teaching methods are vital to the development of young musicians. I have experienced first hand what quality, caring, guided music education can provide for students. I believe I teach in an enthusiastic and nurturing manner which allows each student to reach their full potential in a fun and relaxed environment. I am encouraging of my students and tailor a personal lesson plan and practice schedule for every student based on their previous experiences and personal skill levels. I generally teach through the AMEB syllabus, however I am also able to provide non AMEB focused lessons. My knowledge and experience of Chicago and American West Coast Schools of brass pedagogy paired with training in accent method breathing has helped guide my studies of brass playing. I bring this experience and expertise to my teaching, valuing the pedagogical technique and skills I have learned.
