    Currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Audio at SAE specializing in music production and composition

    13

     

    What other instruments do you play?

    Piano, and I consider the voice an instrument! 

     

    What are your strengths as a teacher?

    I am patient, empathetic but also enthusiastic about music and musical development. I really like to get inside the mind of the student and understand what they are trying to achieve musically, and guide them to be able to manifest it themselves. 

     

    What do you like about teaching guitar?

    What I like most about teaching guitar is sharing my philosophy about and approach toward music with people. It's difficult to learn an instrument; but with the right mind-set and approach to practice I strongly believe that student will emerge as an independent and innovative creative, who is always keen to have a go and generate new ideas based of their own unique musical identity.  

     

    Is there anything else that you would like to add?

    I am very passionate about showing students talents and abilities that they may not already know they have. Within the wider scheme of making music, I am also passionate about teaching students the essence of composition, songwriting and music production and how/why certain instruments fit the way they do within any given song.
