    Conducting and Leading with Confidence and Conviction

    Hello,

    I’m Kevin! I am an Australian-based music educator and conductor and I have a passion for enabling others to lead with a growth mindset and positivity, conduct with confidence and conviction, and flourish as people and as musicians. Our school and community-based ensembles need skilled and committed people to help them be their best. With 30 years of conducting bands, orchestras, and choirs at all levels, I have the experience and outlook to help you learn safely and effectively so that you can be the conductor and leader you aspire to be and ‘pay it forward’ to others.

    My professional career started when I was named as the first ABC Young Conductor of the Year – Australia’s national conducting prize. From this point, I have built a career in professional conducting, university/college ensemble leadership, music consultancy, and an active presence in school and community music contexts. I have led conductor development projects and intensives throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America. I have Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate degrees in Music, and I have been Director/Head of Music in three large schools. I love teaching, watching my students grow and flourish, and working with them to secure their goals and aspirations – whatever they may be.

    I can help you consolidate your baton technique, show you how to study scores and how to prepare your rehearsals, share the essential considerations in selecting a repertoire that works, and share with you the essential methods to work with your musicians in the most effective way to achieve great results in rehearsal and performance. Successful conducting is all about authentic and effective relationships!

    I look forward to working with you if you share my passion for conducting and music-making in affecting a positive difference to the wellbeing of others in our communities!

    Vinicius
    Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
    Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.
