Bass Lessons

A music teacher is more than an accomplished musician. The right teacher for you is one that is experienced in inspiring and nurturing students of any age.  Music is fun.

Choosing a Teacher

Looking for a music teacher is a personal and important decision. It’s not just about finding an accomplished musician, but someone who has the ability to inspire and nurture students of all ages. While music is enjoyable, it also requires discipline and commitment. The perfect teacher for you is one who strikes a balance and instills a lifelong love of music.

When searching for a music teacher, it’s essential to arrange an interview or meeting to discuss your goals and expectations. It’s important to ask about the teacher’s professional and educational background, their approach to teaching and how they evaluate student progress. You should also inquire about their participation in ongoing professional development, the types of music they teach, whether they offer group lessons, their travel availability and the amount of daily practice time required.

It’s also important to ensure that you and the teacher are a good fit. For this reason, I invite you to contact me to discuss my personalized approach to teaching and to answer any questions you may have before commencing music lessons.

    Can you tell us a but about your teaching style?

    Music is my passion – it’s what I live and breathe. As a music teacher in Sydney, I’ve dedicated my life to providing students with comprehensive private instruction in various music fields. My goal as your bass teacher and music coach is to give you a strong foundation in both bass guitar and music theory, enhancing your playing abilities and helping you to understand the underlying principles of all music styles.

    With my guidance, you’ll learn how elements such as rhythm, scales and harmony are used in all types of music. My approach to early teaching is to give you a broad understanding of the foundational concepts and to help you develop the skills and knowledge to become a versatile musician. I am dedicated to making sure that my students are equipped with the tools they need to excel in their music journey.

    Is my first lesson free?

    Are you interested in learning to play the bass guitar? I understand that finding the right instructor can be a daunting task, which is why I offer a no-obligation introductory meeting. This is not a free lesson, but rather an opportunity for us to get to know each other, discuss your goals and expectations, and for you to get a sense of my teaching style. During this session, you’re welcome to play a little for me if you feel comfortable, and I’ll provide you with an idea of what we can achieve together.

    If you’re ready to start your bass guitar journey, don’t hesitate to reach out to me for a chat and we can schedule your introductory meeting. I am looking forward to helping you achieve your musical goals.

    Do you offer advanced music theory lessons?

    Yes, I do offer advanced music theory lessons. Knowledge is power, and music theory is the foundation upon which all lessons are built. My approach is to not only teach the practical aspects of making music, but also to explain the reasoning behind it. I believe that pupils excel when they understand the why, not just the how.

    My lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual student, and I strive to provide a balanced curriculum that will help them achieve their goals. Theory is taught not just for the sake of teaching, but to empower my students with the understanding they need to excel in their musical pursuits.

    If you’re interested in getting started on your music theory journey, I invite you to check out my iOS application available on the Apple App Store. I believe that with the right guidance, anyone can learn the theory of music and achieve their full potential.

    Can you teach all levels of students?

    Absolutely, I can teach all levels of students. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced player, I have the experience and expertise to guide you on your musical journey. My method is flexible and personalized to best fit your abilities and expectations.

    I understand that different students learn differently, some may be visual learners while others may prefer to pick up by ear. That’s why I tailor my approach to suit each student’s unique needs. If you’re interested in learning your favorite songs while also improving your bass playing skills, I can help you with that too. My approach is designed to make your musical experience fun and enjoyable, so you can look forward to each lesson.

    Am I too young or too old for bass guitar lessons?

    Age is not a limitation when it comes to learning to play the bass guitar. If you are old enough to take on instruction, I am confident in my ability to teach you. If a previous teacher has told you that you are “too young” or “too old,” it’s likely that they were not the right teacher for you. A good teacher should be able to teach all ages, regardless of their level of experience.

    I believe that the most important factor in learning to play bass guitar is discipline, patience, and motivation. If you bring those qualities to the lessons, you can be successful at any age.

    If you’re ready to start your bass guitar journey, don’t hesitate to contact me today. I have limited spots available, and I would be happy to schedule a lesson for you. Remember, learning to play the bass guitar is like learning anything else, it takes time and dedication, but with the right guidance, you can achieve your goals.


    Band Coaching

    As a band director, my role is to keep it fun and engaging whilst striving to perform at the highest level. There is great joy in playing well and a great sense of personal pride.

    School and Community Band Coaching

    Playing in a band is a truly special experience for students of all ages. It doesn’t matter if you have prior musical training or not, as long as you have a love for learning and a passion for music, you can join.

    Being a part of a band allows students to learn an instrument, read music, and develop an appreciation for a wide range of musical styles. As students progress and improve, they will have many opportunities to perform and showcase their skills. The skills learned in band, such as increased concentration and self-discipline, carry over into all aspects of life, whether it be in school or in the professional world.

    I have a wealth of experience as a musician, including time in the military. I’ve taken that experience and applied it to directing community and school bands, which is now a part of my broader teaching schedule. I find great joy in making music and sharing my talents with others.

      Striving for excellence while having fun!

      As musicians, we love to entertain and share our music with an audience. Whether it’s playing at community events or in shopping centers, music has the power to bring joy and happiness to both the performers and listeners.

      As a band director, my role is to make sure that rehearsals and performances are fun and engaging, while also striving for excellence. There’s a great sense of personal pride and satisfaction that comes from playing well, and I’m dedicated to helping my students achieve that.
