Derek Moule has extensive experience teaching private brass students and conducting and teaching in band programs. He is the musical director of a new community brass band in Port Macquarie, Hastings River Brass, and has previously been the musical director of several other bands including Bundaberg Municipal Band and St George Brass Band. Derek also composes and arranges music extensively. Lesson sheets are provided free of charge to all beginner students.
Derek has performed successfully on a range of brass instruments. In 2023, Derek placed 3rd in the Australian National Band Council's Open Cornet event and has previously been the Band Association of NSW's open bass trombone champion.
Derek believes enjoyment is critical for learning and continuously explores new ways to make learning fun. To help younger students learn and gain maximum enjoyment from lessons, lessons are broken up into smaller chunks with musical games designed to consolidate the skills they are learning, and fun duets with the teacher. Derek likes to utilise technology during lessons and has written music computer games that students can play at home online to reinforce skills learnt during lessons.
