Brett teaches organ, composition, and music theory (theory, musicianship, music craft). Lessons are given at studios in Camden Park in the southern suburbs or Gordon in Sydney. Brett is an accredited teacher in these areas (see Certificate below).
Brett also specialises in private tutoring for tertiary music students. Whether you wish to get up to speed in first year university, or fill gaps in your knowledge, cement ideas taught at uni or college, or get ahead of the pack, Brett can help. Brett has taught at university in harmony, counterpoint, analysis, music history, aural, composition, and postgraduate supervision. He has previously tutored students studying at Sydney Conservatorium of Music, AIM, Newcastle University, and others. Brett’s former students have graduated with Bachelors and Masters degrees as well as diplomas from Trinity College and the AMEB.
Lessons can be 30 or 60 minutes but some students have elected for 90 minutes or even 2 hours when close to exams. Scheduling is flexible so you can fit in around work or uni commitments. Sometimes students prefer longer lessons every fortnight instead of weekly: this can all be accommodated.
Brett has taught at all levels of music education, but as a specialist in tertiary education, has particular experience with adult learners new to music and experienced, young adults and more mature.
Rates are very reasonable. Email for further information.
