I can help you with; improvisation, jazz theory, Balkan techniques, sound production, rhythm and harmony, listening, developing your practice, composition and tools for music/dance/circus collaborations.

After completing my Ad Dip in Jazz improvisation in 2005 I went on to complete my Bachelor of Music Improvisation at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne. There I studied under outstanding Melbourne musicians Rob Vincs, Eugene Ball and  Julien Wilson. Since graduating in 2009 I have taken more and more interest in Balkan and Turkish musics and have studied under renowned Macedonian musicians Marim Aliev and Mirsad Demirov.

15 years of gigging with bands has given me exposure and experience in a range of styles; Swing, Jazz, Reggae, Gypsy Death Core, Funk, Calypso, Balkan Brass Bands, 25 piece Gypsy Orchestra, Turkish Traditional and Pop, Russian Tango and Ska and Free Improvisation.

Beginners to intermediate levels, all ages welcome.
