I am a passionate, vibrant, innovative and engaging graduate teacher who has a strong interest in music and promoting a rich and quality musical education program in a unique and captivating way, inviting my students with varying musical abilities, experiences and confidence levels to take responsibility for their own musical education in a safe learning environment, allowing them opportunities to enjoy music and have fun, whilst simultaneously gaining a solid foundation in musicianship skills.

I have always been passionate about music from a young age. I believe that singing has the ability to increase one’s confidence, self-esteem and sense of belonging, regardless of their age or musical skills and background. I am driven by students who are motivated to learn how to sing and are willing to be taught about musical technique, theory and performance in an entertaining manner. You know you are making a difference in a student’s life if you are able to put a smile on their face, and I want to provide similar opportunities that my music teachers have given me.
