I have completed my Bachelor of Music majoring in Performance from the Queensland Conservatorium. During my degree I undertook a variety of courses in music research and other areas to improve my teaching, performance, and aural skills.
My principal instruments are the Flute and Piccolo, however I have also done grades in Music Theory (I will teach up to grade 6), and Piano. I have been teaching for a number of years, which has led teaching music to become a passion of mine. I try my best to work in with my students schedules where possible, as I know how hectic life can be.
My experience in the music industry includes being the previous convenor for the Brisbane Woodwind and Brass Eisteddfod and treasurer for the Queensland Philharmonia Orchestra. Over the years, I have aimed to have lessons with a variety of well renowned performers, such as Dr Karen Lonsdale, Gerhard Mallon, Michael Hallit, Patrick Nolan, Kate Lawson, and Alexis Kenny.
I have traveled to China for the world expo in Shanghai and played in the Shanghai Conservatorium of Music (broadcasted on television). My orchestral experience includes various Queensland Youth Orchestra ensembles on flute and piccolo, Queensland Conservatorium Opera Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Orchestra, and Chamber Orchestra on Principal Flute and Principal Piccolo and The Queensland Philharmonia Orchestra on piccolo and flute. My experience also includes various musical pit orchestras such as ‘Beauty and the Beast”, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum”, “Pirates of Penzance”, and “Olivia”.
Over the years I have gained experience with recordings, eisteddfods, auditions, various education music programs and volunteer work. I have also attended musical development programs such as summer school work shops, camps, and master classes with renowned performers such as Trevor Wye.
Lessons are $50/hr at my home studio. Depending on the circumstances and area, I am happy to travel to neighbouring suburbs to teach at your home.
