I have been teaching violin and piano now for 3 years, at Merri Creek Primary School and Wales St Primary School. I have also been teaching privately for 8 years.
I love working with children, watching their progression and encouraging a love of music.
I was a tutor at the Residential Summer String Camp in Ulverstone, (TAS) from 2010-2012, which includes participants of every age.
I had the chance to work with very young kids as well as young to elderly adults.
My approach includes Suzuki method, AMEB. I teach improvisation, folk music, e.g. irish, bluegrass, old time, and gypsy.
My orchestral experience includes playing with Australian Youth Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra (as part of AYO program) the AISOI orchestra, the Jan Sedivka Camerata, Melbourne Metropolitan Sinfonietta, and Melbourne Conservatorium Orchestra.
I was involved with The Woohoo Revue, a gypsy/dance band, and went on their first international tour in 2014 to the U.K., Denmark, Holland, and Germany. I am also the manager of Rosenstein, a new up and coming eastern european band which is gigging successfully around Melbourne.
