Anne is one of the most humble yet talented multi-instrumentalists you will meet! A certified rock chick, Anne has been teaching and playing music (ukulele, guitar, piano, violin, guitar and bass) professionally since 1990.
Anne is also a member of The Australian Ukulele Orchestra and was part of the crew that filmed & performed orchestrated arrangements by Ian Porter during Covid lockdowns including Paladio, Libertango, Sabre Dance, The Entertainer, Dance of the Little Swans, and Pinball Wizard.
Anne holds a Bachelor of Music from UNE in Armadale, an A.Mus.A in piano and is registered with the AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board) for exam purposes.
Anne has taught at a number of music schools and lead various school bands. She has played in a variety of rock, jazz, and fusion bands. For a bit of variety, she would occasionally sit in and play violin with the local community orchestra.
Since 2003, Anne has been running a teaching studio in Dee Why and she offers face-to-face and online lessons in ukulele, guitar, piano, violin, guitar and bass! Anne accepts Creative Kids Vouchers at her studio.
Luckily for us, fate caused Anne to join The Lightly Strung Orchestra in 2015 as our bass player. Since then, her beautiful vocals and teaching experience makes her an invaluable co-leader of the group.
Anne is our rock. Not only is her musical talent incredible, but her funny sense of humour has us all cracking up and in a 1:1 situation helps lighten any stress students may be feeling.
