Hello! My name is Genevieve and I am an experienced saxophone teacher based in Auckland.
I have completed a Bachelor of Music in saxophone performance from Otago University and a Postgraduate Diploma of Music in saxophone performance from the New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University.
I have also completed a DipABRSM in saxophone performance (Diploma Royal Schools of Music) and LRSM in saxophone performance (Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music))
My motivation in teaching is to help a student learn the fundamental technique of saxophone performance so they can develop their own creativity, voice and passion on the saxophone. My hope is to start a student on a life long journey exploring music as art in all its different manifestations, whether performance, composition, etc. I am passionate about excellent musicianship and helping others to reach their musical potential, in a way that suits their needs and desires.
I have specialised in classical/contemporary saxophone, however I am still a student myself and will be studying jazz at Auckland University in 2023.
I am open to all types of musical styles and will adapt my teaching and lessons to what you as a student are interested in. I have a passion for improvising and unleashing a students own creativity.
I am happy to teach beginners without any musical theory or saxophone experience. I teach Alto saxophone, Tenor saxophone and Soprano saxophone.
I have performed in numerous chamber music ensembles in New Zealand such as ‘Saxcess’ the NZ Saxophone Quartet, ‘Duo Eolienne’ (harp & sax duo), ‘SMP Ensemble’ (new New Zealand music), ‘Trade Winds’ (flute and saxophone duo) and ‘Duett Isetta’ (piano & saxophone).
I have performed two saxophone concertos with orchestras, Glazunov’s Op 109 with the Nelson Symphony Orchestra and Milhaud’s Scaramouche with the Dunedin Symphonic Wind Orchestra.
I have performed in Masterclasses in New Zealand and Australia for Nikita Zimin, Niels Bijl, Joseph Lallo, Michael Duke and Jay Barnes.
I teach saxophone technique, musicality, practical music theory, aural skills, improvisation, classical/contemporary saxophone repertoire and performance skills.
I am able to tutor students working through musical grades and/or NCEA.
I am interested in and have performed a wide range of music, and encourage students to explore and work on music which they find most enjoyable and fun!
