I have been teaching and songwriting for 40 years. I love the people I’ve met along the way and am so happy to see that some of them have also become professional musicians.
I offer to put all students through exams if they wish and am happy to say that my teaching record speaks for itself. Since I have been using AMEB or ANZCA exams, I have never had a student get less than an A honours for a practical exam. Even up to grade 7. To see my ‘kids’ flourish musically is truly satisfying
I integrate music theory with practice in early lessons bringing in written exams at about grade two practical level.
My curriculum is designed to have students on a good footing when it comes to gaining their practical certificates when a co requisite is required.
I have been songwriting since I was 15. I am well aware of chord progressions that work and song structures. I write anything from country to heavy metal but by far the majority of my songs are pop ballads
Guitar is a second instrument for me but I have had quite a bit of success putting students through ANZCA modern guitar exams. Even my grade 6 (most advanced) student got honours in his last exam. He’s also writing his own really great riffs and has joined a band. My aim is to inspire creativity.
