Musicians Background:

My experience has been an eclectic combination of my own ambitions which sprouted at the early age of age of 11, when I won my first award for New Zealand's most outstanding jazz musician under the age of 25. This became the catalyst for my international career where I not only managed to complete an extensive musical education but had the opportunity to participate in various competitions which became the foundation of my career. Over the past 6 months on tour I have been showcased in various international festivals in Paris, London, Lyon, Strasbourg, Luxembourg, Shanghai, The Royal Opera House in Sydney, Auckland festival.

Lessons available on an hourly basis weekdays, but open to flexibility.

playing will take your breath awayî

breathtaking solos are edge-of-the-seat stuff.î

nights highlight; a tear away anthem which the young composerís solo brought shuddering to
a climaxî
