Raina Robertson

Clarinet, Saxophone Music Teacher and Accompanist

About

I am a dedicated, experienced clarinet and saxophone teacher (age 21) currently located in Summer Hill (Inner West) and Balgowlah (Northern Beaches). As an ambitious clarinet player, I completed my Associate Diploma of Performance with distinction in 2013, as well as receiving an A+ mark for AMEB 8th, 7th and 6th grades in previous years. Additionally, I played first clarinet in the Sydney Youth Orchestra wind group during 2013, gaining orchestral as well as soloistic experience. I also work as a nanny, DJ, singer + musician and have played and sung gigs in Europe and Sydney. I completed my high school education at Manly Selective Campus in 2014 with an ATAR of 96.7, and was invited to perform at Encore for an outstanding HSC performance. I have been running a clarinet and saxophone teaching studio for three years, coaching adults and children using advanced methods which produce well-rounded players – such as breathing-based exercises, relaxation of muscles, understanding diaphragm control and learning to make a smooth and balanced tone – utilising imagination and visualisation techniques to ensure these are understood by the student. My primary teaching focuses include AMEB exam preparation, band playing, jazz, classical and contemporary styles, music theory and musical expression.
