I am an advanced performer who also loves to teach, and recently completed my PhD at the Queensland Conservatorium. I have 15 years of experience teaching from absolute beginner to advanced level, including preparing students for exams up to AMEB 8th grade and Associate of Music as well as for tertiary entrance and other auditions (such as Queensland Youth Orchestras). Students I have taught spanned in age from 8 to 63, and I'm happy to expand that range! I particularly enjoy teaching adult students, at any level.
Together we can work out exactly what you want to get out of lessons with me, whether that's advancing towards a particular goal, preparing for music exams (including theory and music craft) or auditions, or just playing for fun. I'll tailor the repertoire and supporting material to your needs and interests.
I teach from my home studio in Coorparoo. I have a cat that spends a lot of time in my studio room - while she is friendly and probably won't hang around while we play, if you are badly allergic to cats I am unfortunately not the right teacher for you.
