What I get up to

For my day job, I run Avoca Web Design  a Nelson based website design agency. We work with creative businesses, arts and education organisations and growing not for profits. It’s a lot of fun helping folks develop amazing websites. 

When I’m not working you’ll find me playing or teaching music and out running in the hills around Nelson. I’m passionate about Irish music, trail running and barefoot shoes. 

Irish flute & Irish fiddle lessons, in person and online

Irish music is my passion. I have been playing and teaching for over 20 years. I have a masters in traditional Irish music performance from the university of Limerick, Ireland. I teach all ages and abilities from beginner to experienced musicians. 

I can give lessons on fiddle or flute or tin whistle in person at the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts or from my home.  

I teach flute online via Zoom meeting or Skype. Contact me for more information

I teach flute and tin whistle to all levels, from beginner to advanced level. This is my primary instrument. 

I teach Irish fiddle to beginner and intermediate level students. I can also help classical musicians learn more about the Irish traditional fiddle sound and technique.
