I have been teaching Guitar and Bass to people of all ages (Electric and Acoustic) from beginner through to advanced, for over thirty Five years. I have gained a great deal of teaching experience in all styles of playing. I can help you to gain the various skills needed to play the music of your choice which may be some or all of the following styles: Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Folk, Rhythm and Blues or Funk, Soul, Latin Jazz, Fusion, Ska, Reggae or Gospel.

I see myself as a dedicated teacher first, but also as a player who is able to demonstrate clearly to the student any aspect of what is being covered. In my time as a teacher I have been employed by over twenty prominent schools in and around Melbourne and have always run a very successful private teaching studio.

I have developed (and continue to develop and streamline) an excellent curriculum which ensures success. I teach people of any age and ability and tailor my lessons accordingly. All of my students over time are taught all aspects of playing: some of which include: Chords and Rhythm Guitar (including chord construction and voice-leading), Scales and Music Theory that relates to Improvisation (soloing), All Left and right hand techniques: including right hand finger picking and Finger-tapping, Music reading, both standard notion and Guitar Tablature.

For those wishing to sit for Examinations I have much experience in preparing students for VCE Solo Performance, Group Performance and Music Investigation which includes both Contemporary and Classical styles. The majority of my VCE students achieve an ‘A’ for their performance Examination. I also prepare students for AMEB Classical, CPM, Rock School, ANZCA and Trinity Examinations.

Education: Aside from studying Jazz, Rock, Pop and Classical Guitar privately with leaders in these fields (Peter Lynch, Bruce Clarke to name a few) I have also completed an ‘Advanced Diploma of Music’ (Jazz / Contemporary) National Training Authority and an ‘Associate in Music’ (A.Mus.A) (Classical Guitar.) Also: AMEB Grade 6 Musicianship. I have a current ‘Working with Children Check’ I am a fully accredited member of the ‘Victorian Music Teachers Association’.
