With over 10 years of experience, he has worked as a composer and director for university musicals and performed in pop and jazz bands around melbourne. He loves improvising
and creative music making.
In 2013 I moved to Melbourne to further my career as a musician. In that time I have gained three years of experience working as a guitar teacher with students of all ages and levels. I continued to work as a solo musician as well as playing in duos and bands, embarking on numerous tours around Australia, UK and Europe. I have a Cert 3 in sound production and worked as the in-house sound engineer at Whole Lotta Love Bar, East Brunswick.
I like to think that I am a passionate, reliable worker and that all my experiences so far as both as a performer and a teacher has helped me to develop a strong work ethic, built on initiative and self-motivation.
