What Parents and Students have to say about Geoff's music lessons:
"For the past 5 years we have had children learning instruments with Geoff – trumpet, flute and clarinet. All have enjoyed his encouraging style and benefitted from his wealth of experience. The twice yearly concerts gave our kids the confidence to perform in public and all 3 progressed quickly under his tutorship. We would not hesitate to recommend Geoff for anyone looking for music tuition at whatever level you are currently at. Many thanks Geoff" P.D., Croydon.
"Geoff is a terrific teacher in many ways not just as someone who transfers his extensive knowledge of music and of the instrument but also as a mentor. He encourages the student to extend themselves in a calm and supportive manner, leads by example and has at times created more of a fun "jamming session" alongside the essentials of a technical music lesson. This suited our child very much and delighted him. Geoff has a very quiet demeanour and generates a warm, comfortable learning environment for the students which always includes the compulsory element of fun. It's always a pleasure taking my grandson to his music lesson and so very entertaining" C.H., Heathmont.
"Geoff's lessons are always fun and productive. He is able to meet the student where they are currently at and provide strong encouragement to progress further in their learning. As a family we have a one boy (12) , one girl (14) and a mum studying with Geoff, so we can recommend him for all ages and abilities" R.C., Mt. Dandenong.
"Under the instruction of Geoff from Mastering Music, our son's enthusiasm for his instrument, and his playing ability, have improved immeasurably. It is obvious that Geoff cares about his pupils and we know that his efforts have helped our son to appreciate and play beautiful music" A.N., Heathmont.
"Geoff has done wonders with our highly energetic and easily distracted son. They've been working together for a few years now and he is a truly exceptional little sax man! He loves to play and has a well developed sense of confidence in life stemming from the work Geoff has done with him. Geoff is more than a music teacher, he is a kid builder!" D.E., Lilydale.
"Geoff has been teaching me (a complete novice and with only basic music reading ability) to play the trumpet. In the 12 months I have been learning, I am nearing completion of the first manual and have featured in 2 of his bi-annual concerts. Geoff has an excellent rapport with his students and I recommend his ability in teaching others" J.G., Warburton.
"Geoff is a great teacher and a great mentor. He will take you under his wing, and teach you the wonderful world of music in a fun and creative manner. Geoff will keep your child interested and happy with his clever teaching methods ,and terrible jokes. If you want to play any wind instrument, Geoff is your guy!!" A.H., Eltham.
