Kia ora, I’m a full time musician and music teacher living in Wellington. I graduated from the New Zealand School of Music in 2017 with a degree in Jazz Performance. I play in a variety of ensembles around town like the RNZAF band, Culture Embassy, and the Rodger Fox Big Band. I have been teaching students of all ages for the past 5 years and have a passion for doing so! I cater to many different learning styles and levels of experience from total beginner to advanced technique and improvisation methods.
