Background

I have been playing, arranging and composing music since I was a little tacker over many musical genres. I play the violin, viola and piano and have taught music (Box Hill Tafe, Yamaha Music Schools, primary and secondary schools in Victoria, private teaching) for many years before and after completing my Dip. Ed. I have performed with many semi-professional orchestral and chamber music ensembles in Australia and Sweden and enjoy piano accomanying, most recently at the Comedy Festival in 2010.

Current work

My current position is at the Arts Centre in Melbourne as an educator in music technology and new media. I develop and deliver long term music and video projects with primary and secondary schools and devlop and deliver our day-to-day courses in software such as Sibelius, Acid, Reason, Pro Tools, Sonar Producer and Home Studio, Groovy Music, Finale, Band in a Box, Vegas Video and others. I also record student and adult bands in our recording studio and run our VET Music Industry (Technical Production) program.

Arranging and copying

My professional copying and arranging work covers genres such as jazz, pop, classical, folk and I understand and am familiar with the instruments, styles and requirements for copying and arranging for various ensembles and musical groups. I have prepared scores for performance for MSO, Orchestra Victoria, Black Arm Band and individuals such as Susie and Phil Davies-Splitter. I have prepared scores for print for organisations such as Fine Print in Brisbane (several different projects). I have also produced audio tracks of my arrangements for backing tracks or performance or practise requirements for both adults and children.

Contact

I love music across many different genres and enjoy challenging my ear and my arranging skills with varied projects. I complete projects on time and communicate regularly with you during the process. I can interact in person or solely online if necessary and am familiar with both PC and Mac platforms.
