Play - Compose - Perform
Have you always wanted to play an instrument?
Begin today - There are no rules as to what is the right age to begin music lessons, and it doesn't matter what instrument you want to learn first, you just need to be given the opportunity. The most important thing is to simply be exposed to music as much as possible in a free and fun environment.
Individual and group music tuition and workshops are always creative and fun and are based on building confidence. It is an experience that enriches all areas of development and even rehabilitation.
My unique and highly creative methods inspire both children and adults to discover the music within and find the confidence to explore their instruments. This makes my lessons engaging and confidence-building.
Lessons are individualised for each student, catering to goals and ambitions. Lessons are fun and exciting and you will always leave knowing new and interesting musical techniques and information.

My experience as a musician, songwriter, composer and multi instrumentalist, covers at least 45 years. One of the youngest in a large family, rounds were always sung to entertain ourselves while washing up dishes. From my first musings on the family piano, accordions, recorders, guitars and percussion instruments I was surrounded with. To playing in ensembles, choirs and bands in high school and going on to learning traditional classical theory. I attended the Northern Rivers Conservatorium of Music and the Arts in my late 20's which was jazz based, majoring in keyboard and vocals. I went on to perform in both folk and pop bands on keyboard, bass guitar, accordion, vocals and other instruments. I participated in many choirs and accompanying symphony orchestras. I have been involved in some huge musical productions like Les Miserable, Orpheus In The Underworld, Sweeney Tod and many more. I played the female lead 'Marion' in The Music Man.
Touring the UK, Ireland and Scotland 2007, inspired me to spend more time there where I worked as a restaurant pianist 2010-12 in Edinburgh UK, in between performing around England, Scotland and Ireland solo.
I started private music teaching in 2014 and completed a Cert III in Education Support and began group lessons in primary schools and workshops. I have worked with children and adults through NDIS to achieve their musical goals and ensure their participation in community. It is a great joy for me to encourage and help others of all ages find the music in themselves. Music is not a competitive sport. It is a fundamental part of us being human.
