Clarinet / Saxophone

About Joe

I started playing the clarinet in the City Band in Reggio Calabria, Italy at the age of 8 and by the time I was 12 I was the Band 1st Clarinet.

At the age of 11 I attended Conservatory of Music High School for 3 years and then continued at the Conservatory of Music "F. Cilea", Reggio Calabria for a further 2 years majoring in Clarinet this is where I developed strong technical and musical foundations.

I then moved to Australia and completed my Bachelor of Education Majoring in Music.

In the 90's I studied Clarinet and Saxophone with Mark Walton Dean of the Woodwind department of Sydney Conservatorium of Music. I also played with the Penrith Symphony Orchestra and performed the Weber Clarinet Concerto No 1 with the University of Western Sydney Symphony Students Orchestra.

I have worked for the past 35 years as a freelance clarinet and saxophone player and taught clarinet and saxophone to many students preparing for AMEB or Trinity exams.
