I am a pianist, keyboardist, and working musician based in Brisbane, Australia. I started playing piano in 2003 and went on to complete an Associate of Music (AMusA) in Contemporary Popular Music from the Australian Guild of Music Education in 2013 before beginning study at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music for jazz piano the following year. While there I studied under, and worked with, faculty including Steve Newcomb, Louise Denson, Yitzhak Yedid, Dave Spicer, Peter Walters, James Sandon, and Jeff Usher, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Performance in 2018. I have also received instruction from artists such as Nick Semrad (Cory Henry & the Funk Apostles, Mark Guilian’s Beat Music, Knower) and Nigel Hall (Lettuce, Jon Cleary and the Monster Gentlemen, The Nigel Hall Band).
I have taught all levels from beginners to advanced musicians, and have helped many students prepare for all levels of AMEB exams. I specialize in jazz and contemporary styles (funk, blues, etc.), piano technique, and jazz music theory.
All in-person lessons are available either in-home, or at any suitable location of your choice, as I am not based in a studio. I travel to most inner city Brisbane suburbs, and will travel to outer suburbs for additional travel fee. Online lessons are available as well.
