I'm a highly experienced music teacher who moved to the Eltham area late last year I've already started adding to my list of students with some fabulous singing, piano and woodwind students.
Vocal teaching is also one of my favourite and I just love recording students and seeing the look in their eyes as they hear themselves recorded professionally for the first time.
I'm going to upload some recordings shortly for your listening pleasure.
One of the things I Iove to do with my teaching is use the latest or relatively recent pop songs or show songs such as a Charlie Puth hit like We don't talk any more and adapt it for relatively easy piano or saxophone. I'm doing the same at merri Creek primary school where I still teach with some songs from the hit musical Matilda with music by the incomparable genius - Tim Minchin. The kids just love the newness and immediacy of doing songs from shows they've only just seen and fallen in love with - rather than something their boring old teacher fell in love with when he/she was a child!
I'm also forever doing arrangements of songs for piano or groups of instruments and also for small vocal ensembles or bands.
Well great to chat with you and look forward to many more blogs and keeping you informed of what's happening in the world of Martin's Music.
