About

Following my graduation in the top 15 students in Victoria for VCE Music Performance in 2019, I began my teaching career at Caulfield Music Centre at the commencement of 2020, where I have been a certified tutor for over two years.

My experience as a tutor includes having taught over a thousand lessons to students ranging from four years old through to adults and seniors.

Q&As

I love the connection that is built between myself and the student, and most of all I love seeing them progress and achieve a better standard of playing than when they started. This is a very rewarding aspect of teaching for me.

I've always been driven by an intense passion for music. I also enjoy helping others and meeting new people, so I felt that teaching would be a perfect way to do all of these things.

I offer an approach to the guitar that balances technical understanding with more hands-on ideas that are likely to provide the most benefit in real life scenarios, whether it be jamming with friends, playing gigs, or if you are simply looking to play along with your favourite songs.
I will attempt to provide a path which is both structured and enjoyable; both of these elements are crucial to becoming a better player.

I have gained a lot of experience teaching via zoom throughout lockdown periods in Melbourne, and therefore am very happy to deliver lessons online should that be your preference.

Masks are worn and appropriate social distancing is practised during my lessons in person, with the option of having classes online if the client would be more comfortable with this.

Services

In my guitar lessons you will be able to develop a solid foundation on the instrument or be able to specialise further in styles such as funk, blues, jazz or classical, for advancing players.

I have extensive experience with teaching young children as well as adults, and love teaching all ages and skill levels! Ultimately my goal is to teach the necessary skills while fostering a lasting enthusiasm for guitar.

During our first trial lesson, we'll get acquainted by discussing your musical interests, taste, any prior experience and expectations with the lessons, because every student learns differently. I aim to reflect this as much as possible in the way I teach. For example:

My students have the option to come up with a short list of songs for us to focus on during the lessons. I'll then cover the foundational concepts and techniques used in these songs, so that student gains confidence in the style of playing that they are most interested in.

For beginners, this might involve more general concepts such as basic chord shapes and notes, whereas more experienced players might be directed towards more niche techniques. With over ten years of instrumental experience, I am fluent across countless of these techniques and am confident to be able to help you along your musical journey.
