BA. Music (Music Education)Violin, Viola, Cello
Jacob offers violin and viola lessons that involve reading music notation, technique to produce the best possible sound, aural skills, suitable repertoire and appropriate stylistic techniques. He loves developing a student’s own sense of interpretation, style and expression to enable them to connect with the music at a higher level.
Music has been a big part of Jacob’s life since he was 4 years old.
Since then he has discovered the violin to be his most intimate and expressive instrument.
He continued formally studying the violin to graduate from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music (Music Education) in 2011 under the direction of Maria Lindsay.
Now Jacob conducts ensembles and teaches violin, viola and cello at several schools in the Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands.
He has been the Musical Director of the Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra and Shoalhaven Junior Strings since 2014.
In addition to Jacob’s dedication to string teaching, he regularly performs in the Steel City Strings as well as performing in the Shoalhaven String Trio and other various community orchestras and musicals.
