I have been teaching the guitar for over 18 years, and have taught many people to become the guitar players they want to be. Over this time I have continued to refine and better my teaching skills in order to become a more effective guitar teacher for my students.
I am V.I.T. registered (Victorian institute of teaching), and have taught guitar in several schools including Xavier College, Ruyton Girls' School, and Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak.
In addition to this, I have taught the guitar at Ron Leigh's Music Factory, Coleman School of Music, and am currently running my own guitar school in the Springvale and Keysborough area.
Over the time I have taught all ages and levels of the guitar, gaining the experience and knowledge that is necessary to teach the guitar effectively.
I have been in my own guitar teaching business for 7 years and am currently studying with master guitarist and mentor Tom Hess. Tom is among the top guitar teachers in the world today, and under his guidance I am learning to teach, coach and mentor my own students in even more effective ways. I also travel to Chicago once a year to receive more personalised training from Tom Hess in regards to teaching the guitar.
In addition to my teaching, I have played in many bands across a wide range of styles including rock, blues, and jazz. Through these bands, I have played many gigs in a variety of places, including regular pub gigs, and corporate functions, weddings etc.
