My teaching approach always considers the specific needs and experience of the student. From the basics in music theory and composition to more advanced subjects, I'll always make sure learning is structured and paced appropriately. You'll learn many of the theoretical aspects of theory/composition as well as growing your own unique approach to learning about and writing music.
Trumpet instruction is similarly progressive, structured and all inclusive. My specialty is adult learners, but I cater to all ages. Want to play soft and pretty? You got it. Loud, fast and sizzling? No problem. Why not have both?
I am a PhD candidate studying Music Composition, currently based in Melbourne. I have a deep passion for all things musical (I also play trumpet).
My higher studies began at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, from which I graduated with First Class Honours and a Dean's Award for Academic Excellence. I'm currently a recipient of the Australian Postgraduate Award for my ongoing PhD studies.
I love to read (addicted to audiobooks), and learn new things whenever I can.

I have supervised Christopher's music composition PhD, as a senior lecturer in music. He has highly advanced skills in music notation, to the most sophisticated level, and is an excellent communicator. You will be in the best hands if you want to improve your skills in reading music notation, whether as a complete beginner or as a professional.
Chris is very passionate about music and communicates very clearly in his teaching. Highly recommended.
