Teaching

I've taught in institutions since 1998, most notably at the VCA, Monash University and in the bachelor degree NMIT. In this time I've worked with individual students on a range of instruments, directed large and small ensembles, and delivered classes in theory, improvisation, composition, arranging, music education and cultural studies. I've also supervised honours and masters students.

My primary focus as a teacher of the trumpet comes from the pedagogy of Bill Adam, as taught to me by Miroslav Bukovsky who studied with Bill in the '80s.

My masters research explored improvisation as a way of developing technique on the trumpet. You can find my masters thesis below, as well as links to the institutions at which I currently teach.
