ABOUT

I'm an extremely enthusiastic musician with taste for nearly all kinds of music. I've been playing piano for 13 years (since I was 5 years old) and learning for 12 of them. I received a 48 VCE Music Performance (Contemporary Piano) while completing Year 11 and performed at 2017 VCE's Season of Excellence Top Class concert. I've also learnt cello since the age of 7. I've played (mainly acoustic) guitar for approx. 7 years since teaching myself at the age of 11. Only recently, I've been playing more lead electric guitar. I've got rudimentary skills on drums and electric bass. I've also been singing for a couple of years; whilst I haven't had lessons, I practice regularly, and have been involved with school choirs since 2015 and also had a lead role in the Woodleigh school production in 2018. At school, I was involved in multitudes of rockband items and orchestras and ensembles, where I mainly played solo keyboard, rhythm guitar or cello. I've also played at some acoustic gigs (in a duet and solo) within school and also externally, and done an enormous amount of busking. I absolutely adore performing, and would love to play in any sort of band whatsoever, but I would equally love providing accompaniment and/or backing vocals to singers/musicians in a duet or trio :)
