Justin Buckingham

Hello! I’m Justin. I teach weekday afternoons from my studio in MacGregor. Currently I am teaching weekdays from 1pm-6pm.
My qualifications include a Bachelor of Music Education with Honours and a Bachelor of Jazz Performance, both completed at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. My teaching is also informed and invigorated by my extensive performance work. I have experience in jazz, classical and contemporary styles and regularly perform in small and large jazz bands, funk bands and contemporary bands. I have been teaching saxophone and woodwind and leading ensembles for about fifteen years and have felt that what I have done has been of a high standard and well received by students, parents, teachers, and audiences. I currently teach at Emmaus Christian College, Brindabella Christian College and St Clare’s College At these last two I conduct bands and instrument tutorials. I am the musical director of Connexion Big Band and Spectrum Big Band.
Since moving to Canberra I regularly perform with such groups as trad-jazz band Zackerbilks, The Australian Wind Symphony and my own swing jazz band Rhythm Capital.
I am keenly passionate about music teaching and music performance. I routinely review my teaching practice and resources with an eye to achieving the best outcome for my students. To this end, for example, I have been developing resources for a website to aid my tuition (which I will invite you to visit www.thewoodwindcompanion.com ) while I write reports each term to keep students up to date.
Topics of study for lessons include beginner, intermediate, advanced; primary, secondary, university, and mature-age; saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone), flute (and piccolo), and clarinet (plus bass clarinet); jazz improvising, repertoire, arranging, composing and style; classical including AMEB exams and theory; contemporary styles including funk, reggae, rock, folk, etc; maintenance, buying, and gear.
