Formerly Instrumental Music coordinator for Saint Gilgen International School in Austria I remain available for limited online or private lessons by special arrangement , please see the contact page or click here for contact
Previously at Byron Bay Community primary School I co-taught the year 5 and 6 band project for over a decade. This positive and productive period nurtured both my own passion for teaching and also contributed greatly to the schools progressive curriculum culminating in a large body of around 60 original recorded works over the decade.
My Tertiary formalities include,
A 3 year Diploma of Music specialising in Jazz and improvised music from the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne (Now part of the University of Melbourne )
A Post Graduate Certificate of Music Studies from the Queensland Conservatorium at Griffith University in Brisbane Australia. Rated at academic level 8.
More practically speaking I can boast vast professional experience in the industry and a proven track record of positive results. Both are priceless assets to any private or group educational application.
A customised and totally individual personal practice strategy and development plan is a standard feature of all individual tuition.
I am also certified and experienced in both "Children's Services" and "Adult Training Education and Assessment" as well as having undertaken some basic Steiner education and theory training.
