Piano Music Teacher
I am a musician and composer originally from Perth Western Australia now based in Melbourne. I'm primarily a pianist, having obtained my undergraduate degree specialising in jazz music from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).
In addition to my undergraduate degree I have an Honours degree and Masters degree in music composition.
I have been teaching piano students of all ages since 2005 and have taken several students through AMEB performance and theory exams and given lessons for leisure. I have also been a lecturer in composition at WAAPA from 2008 - 2012 giving lectures on Australian music history, film music history, composing music for film, research methodologies, song writing as well as tutoring composition students one-on-one.
I have a keen interest in film music having composed 16 short film scores and four feature length scores. I also have an interest in electronics and music incorporating improvisation.
