Post Graduate of The New Zealand School of Music, Victoria Norgrove has been a passionate student of music for well over a decade. She strives to be an understanding, open-minded, and adaptable teacher to provide the best experience for her each of her students’ learning styles and needs.
Victoria has approximately ten years of trumpet performance experience and seven years of focused music theory and composition experience. She has completed her NCEA Music internals and externals with Merit and Excellence Endorsements, and completed her undergraduate Bachelors degree. She has also partaken in ABRSM exams for trumpet performance and music theory with her highest grade of 95% in Grade 5 Music Theory in 2016.
From intermediate age, Victoria has participated in national competitions traveling across the country performing in jazz bands and concert wind bands such as the multi-award winning North Shore Youth Symphonic Wind Band as a trumpet player. Locations include Auckland city, Gisborne, Whangarei, and Wellington city. Her skills even garnered opportunities for many solo performances and features. She also has a passion for music history so she can learn from the great composers leading up to the present day, showing that her main goal in life is to never stop learning.
Victoria now wishes to inspire and nurture the same passions in other minds, young and old.
The material I will teach in these lessons will be ABRSM theory papers and trumpet performance standard, along with the NCEA/NZQA success criteria. For composition students, I will use Elaine Gould’s well written book “Behind Bars: The Definitive Guide to Music Notation” and the teachings of lecturers at the New Zealand School of Music. I also have practice books by famous trumpet player and jazz composer, Allen Vizzuti, to support certain exercises. Finally, I have fun scores from movies such as The Lord of The Rings trilogy to learn and analyse. I wish to be as understanding, open-minded, and adaptable as possible so all of my students get the best experience and have fun!
I can’t wait to meet you!
