French Horn

What do you teach at the Con?

French horn.

What genres do you teach?

Classical mostly.

What is it that you love about teaching music – particularly at Wollongong Conservatorium?

Helping the students to develop their skill and musicianship. I studied at UOW so like to stay part of the Wollongong community.

Please share a particular career highlight and why it’s special to you.

My recent composition for multiple French horns, Of Fearlessness, was no. 1 in the March Chart of the New Age Music Guide. Very satisfying.
