Hi I'm Richard.
I'm a Violinist and have been playing this instrument for over 15 years, along with Trumpet. I recently graduated from the University of Auckland School of Music with Honours in Composition, where I composed for a variety of ensembles such as NZTrio and ACE Brass. While being back in Taupō, I've been involved in a range of ensembles such as the Taupō Concert Band, Great Lake Big Band and the Taupō Brass Band. As well as teaching at the TSOM, I also teach students at Taupō-nui-a-Tia College and Tauhara College, both individually and in ensemble sessions.
