Bio

I am an internationally experienced (29 years professional) musician, composer, performer and piano teacher. I have acquired experience that very few South African professional musicians have.

I am an experienced teacher, having moved from Cape Town I had to relinquish 35 students to permanently move to Johannesburg. My schedule is filling up, and available spaces are becoming less. Learners will gain a balanced, well-rounded music education including ear training, sight-reading, history, and piano performance in various genres. e.g. Classical, jazz, etc. I take a theoretical approach.

Education

• Piano Teacher - Neil Solomon (Senior Piano Lecturer UCT) Teaching Diploma - studied with June Keeves.
• I teach the ABRSM Syllabus with learners gaining Distinctions in both Practical and Theory exams.

My Proudest
Achievements

• I have worked with musicians from all over the world and have worked in recording studios, theatre and live band/solo performances.
• I have had my work used in radio jingles, songwriting, film scores and live performances and corporate events. Reference https://www.facebook.com/trevordubuisson/
