Marg Lee  Dip.Mus.Ed

In 1980, I graduated from the NSW Conservatorium of music with a Diploma in Music Education. This Diploma was a four-year teacher training course, my principal instrument being the piano, piano teachers Albert Landa and John Heming.

Following my music course I decided to extend my studies in the area of Jazz. In 1978 I studied Jazz Improvisation at the NSW Conservatorium of Music and in 1980, Jazz piano, Theory, Composition and Pedagogy with various prominent US Jazz educators. In 1981-1982 I studied Jazz piano with Chuck Yates, Sydney. In 1984 I attended many music festivals and performed in various clubs during a six-month tour of Europe and in 1992 I spent six weeks in New York studying teaching methods in Jazz Education.

In 1977 my career as a music teacher/professional musician commenced. My Dip.Mus.Ed qualifications and extra studies in the Jazz idiom have enabled me to teach a variety of musical styles in a number of different teaching settings. From 1977 to now I have taught the piano privately at home (Jazz, Classical inluding AMEB exams and Popular music styles). Our home teaching studio includes a Yamaha grand piano, keyboards and excellent recording facilities.

I have held piano teaching positions at Oakhill College, Yamaha Music School, Meriden School and Lane Cove Music and Cultural Centre.

I also have extensive experience teaching in a classroom situation. In 1985 to 1990 I was employed as a casual music/relief teacher with the ACT Ed. Dept. In 1991 to 1998 I was a music lecturer and accompanist (part-time) with the Canberra School of Music, Jazz Dept, ANU. My classes included Jazz Listening and Analysis, Ensemble and Concert Practice. In 2000 I was employed as a class music teacher (part-time) at Narrabundah College, ACT Ed. Dept. My classes included Keyboard, Guitar, Musicianship, Advanced Chamber Music and Jazz Theory and Performance.

Harold Luebke   M.Mus  Dip.Mus.Ed

My professional career began in 1973, when as a student at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music, I began taking private saxophone, clarinet and flute students. Since that time teaching has played a major role in my life. I have held teaching positions at the Kings School, Wenona School, Lane Cove Public School, Meriden School and the University of NSW.

From 1984 until 1999 I was a full-time lecturer in music at the Canberra School of Music (ANU).

I have studied and travelled widely. In 1984 I studied and performed extensively throughout Europe. In 1992 I travelled to New York, Boston, Hartford, Rochester and Toronto with the assistance of a study grant from the ANU.

I have had the privilege of working with many fine students, particularly saxophone players such as Andrew Robson (whose CDs have received ARIA and ABC nominations for Jazz Album of the Year) and Con Campbell (1995 winner of the James Morrison Scholarship).
