Classical guitar tuition in Canberra from highly qualified professional, Graduate and Post Graduate degrees

Methodology

My teaching technique has been evolving for over thirty years and refined by ongoing exposure to other great teachers throughout my own student days, masterclasses and festivals.

In the beginning, the student is 'set up' properly with close attention to posture and correct technique. The student is introduced to reading and notation at the outset. I also accompany the student from the beginning so that they gain some early form of chamber music, and the extra enjoyment of the sound.
This prepares them very quickly for group lessons with other students and examinations, if they wish.

My materials are drawn from wide and varied sources, as, in my opinion, no 'method' is entirely satisfactory by itself. In later stages, I see my role in the more shared sense of mutual discovery, guidance, encouragement and inspiration. I teach students of all ages and am guided by their musical interests and passions.

Background

I am a professional classical guitarist, performer, teacher and composer, with over thirty years experience. I taught at the Canberra School of music for ten years, preparing pre-tertiary students for admittance to the performance degree course, during which time I was a panelist for the degree students' recital examination performances, up to Masters level.

In addition, I have taught at many schools throughout Canberra, primary and secondary, in addition to my private home studio. I have taken many to eighth grade AMEB level examinations.

A few of my students over the years have excelled in the continuation of their studies at both tertiary and post graduate overseas studies, becoming competition winning performing and recording artists.

I have both a Bachelor of Music degree and a Graduate Diploma degree in guitar performance. I studied under the renowned guitar pedagogue Timothy Kain and was invited by him, while still a student, to join the world renowned guitar quartet Guitar Trek, of which I was a member for 10 years.
