Ready to take your playing to the next level?


During my time studying music at university, I learned from some of the best music educators and musicians in the country.


They helped me with so many areas of music – improvising, developing my ear, rhythm, timing, technique, composition, notation, music theory, practising, and so much more.


It’s clear to me now that the influence of those great teachers permeates every musical interaction I have – whether on a stage, in a practise room or teaching a class.

They gave me the tools to confidently navigate my own path as a musician.

My goal is to do the same for you.



How can I help?

My goal is to pass on what I’ve learned in the last 28+ years of playing, to help you to develop and express your own musical voice.

  • Discover and refine your own unique style of playing
  • Prepare for exams, auditions, gigs
  • Develop your musical ear, so you can learn your favourite songs, licks and solos quickly and easily
  • Develop a rock solid foundation that allows you to easily move between different genres
  • Learn the music you love
  • Learn the skills to help you become a professional gigging musician

I’ve worked as an instrumental instructor in many primary schools and high schools including: The Knox School, Geelong Grammar School, Brighton Secondary College, Fitzroy High, Footscray City Primary and more.

During that time, I’ve also been running my private teaching business for around 15 years, where I’ve taught students ranging from 5 to 78 years old.

I enjoy the variety of working with people of all age groups so no matter what you’re age, I’d love to work with you.

Yes! I have a Bachelor Of Music (Hons).

I completed the first 3 years at Melbourne University (Faculty of the VCA) and the Honours year at Monash University a few years later.

I also completed a Certificate IV in Audio Engineering at SAE in Brisbane in 2001.

Yes! I can help you with learning the basics of theory all the way to advanced jazz harmony.

I love the study of harmony, rhythm and melody and I’ve spent a lot of time assimilating music theory into my playing.

Many theoretical concepts I learned were from players who didn’t play the same instrument as me so it’s definitely something I can help with regardless of the instrument you play.

I started my guitar journey playing blues and rock music. That led to hard rock, grunge, psychedelic rock and nu metal in my teenage years.

I later got into a lot of 60’s and 70’s progressive rock which led to jazz. Upon studying jazz at university, a whole lot of live opportunities playing all sorts of genres came up:

Improvised music, rockabilly, gypsy-jazz, alt-rock, fusion, jazz, bluegrass, ska, metal, soul, pop, r’n’b, blues, folk and more.

More recently I have taught myself a number of pieces from the classical repertoire, and also studied flamenco guitar in 2017/18

Yes!

As well as the guitar, I have taught ukulele and bass at a number of schools over the years.

Yes! I provide both on request.
