I travel to student’s homes around Reservoir and Rosanna, VIC to teach,
I teach lessons from my own studio online via our easy to use Zoom connection, so students have the convenience of playing their own instrument, in their own home.
I’ve been a music tutor and high school classroom and instrumental teacher for several years. I have also had a stint as music co-ordinator for a church youth group and led a bands and ensembles of varying skill levels.
A BIT MORE ABOUT LIAM
How I Teach & My Teaching Philosophy
I wanted to be a music teacher as I get to spend all day helping other people discover the joys of fiddling and making music.
I say “do what you have to do, to play what you want to play, and enjoy as much of the process as you can”. Technical exercises, exams, etc. are useful for helping students get comfortable with the instrument and the pressures of performance, but ultimately learning music is more than just a means to an end, and it’s better to wring as much joy and musicality as possible from each step of the journey than defer fulfilment in pursuit of unattainable perfection.
My Favourite Artists, Bands, Composers, Pieces of Music
I prefer not to talk about music (or dance about architecture), out of the context of making it happen.
My Performing Experience
A bit of everything. I was concertmaster and soloist with the Coastal Chamber Orchestra for a number of years, I’ve toured extensively with rock and folk bands internationally and across Australia, played semi-professionally in chamber ensembles and as a session musician, formed and led several folk bands and busked around the world.
