Personal Statement

I am both a gifted teacher and an award winning composer. My works have
been performed at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, and by renowned orchestras (Melbourne Symphony, Kiev Philharmonic, Orchestra Victoria)

As a teacher I am 100% dedicated and passionate about inspiring you, and giving you the knowledge and tools for you to reach your goals. I was on the
Film Scoring staff at The Australian Film Television Radio School, as well as having taught at University of Melbourne (counterpoint) and the Victorian College of the Arts (film scoring).

I have a diverse background, however I specialize in the following areas:
Writing music for FIlm, Orchestration, Composition, Music theory, and Guitar.

I teach in a clear and well thought out manner. You will learn quickly and enjoy your lessons. I expect my students to practice a minimum of 20 minutes a day 5 to 6 days a week. This ensures progress and that you are not wasting your time or money.
