Melbourne Conservatorium honours pianist teaching composition, jazz improvisation, songwriting, and aural training

Methodology

Each student has a different experience with me. I finely create a goal-oriented schedule over the course of 6 months, where the student has time to accomplish and perhaps even perform what they have been working on. It's all about how much better you can be, and how much work you are willing to put in. I will do everything I can to guide you on that adventure.

Super tutor

Patrick is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Background

I am a composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist, and educator. I write for big bands and orchestra. I play all sorts of music and write all sorts of music, but most importantly, I'm a teacher. I'm disciplined, creative, grateful, cultivated, and well trained. I'm also super easy to get along with! Good vibes only :).

Hope to see you soon!

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $40/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $170
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $330

Details

My rate will in some cases depend on a student's level.

The more advanced the student is, the more advanced the conversation and topics will be, then the more the rate will be. This will not be a drastic change, but the heavier topics require more work and discussion and analysis, something which I think should be rewarded.

This will also be discussed and negotiated, there is nothing set in stone for me.

Patrick has proven a pivotal role in my musical development. My understanding of basic musical devices has been completely uprooted. He has given me the tools to continue my practice into new areas of musicality Thank you Pat!!!

Patrick is a great musician and composer. As a teacher he is articulative and patient with his students. Not to mention he has a great knowledge of what he teaches and is able to deliver the meterial in a clear and palatable fashion, that caters to the individual's levels and learning styles. From my experience I would highly recommend Pat as a teacher.
