Teaching Staff

The Open Music Academy is staffed by some of South Australia’s leading instrumental pedagogy and performance experts.

Our staff lead by example through their commitment to the highest standards of instrumental performance, with backgrounds as international chamber music artists, soloists, and members of professional orchestras. All our teachers share a keen commitment to passing on their skills to the next generation, with a focus on helping young musicians to fulfill their musical potential. This is achieved through a supportive yet challenging program of study that fully develops each student’s general musicianship, creativity, technique and performance skills, allowing each student to establish their personal musical voice.
