Originally from Canberra, I completed my teaching degree at Australian Catholic University in my early 20’s and worked for several years as a classroom teacher.
During my time as a classroom teacher I was heavily involved in all the music pursuits in the school and so decided to make this the focus of my teaching.
I am a qualified classroom teacher, with a Bachelor of Arts and a Diploma of Teaching and Learning.
I have been involved in music, in one way or another, for as long as I can remember, at primary and secondary school and, later, through community choirs, orchestral ensembles and theatre.
Originally from Hobart, I have been involved in music my entire life. I started learning the flute at the age of 7 and then in my teen years started focusing on the guitar and the bass guitar.
At 21 I received my bachelor degree in music performance and the following year moved to Melbourne to complete my honours at the University of Melbourne, which i received at the end of 2016.
I have been playing guitar since I can remember, having learnt informally from family members. At age fourteen I commenced formal study in classical and contemporary guitar and at the age of eighteen I began studying piano.
My musical career begun when I was at primary school and has continued ever since with no break as I have loved it that much. I begun my learning on the saxophone and have since picked up the flute and clarinet as not only a challenge but also so I can play in stage productions.
Tamblyne began playing classical violin at the age of 7. In 2008 Tamblyne began teaching violin at primary schools on the Mornington Peninsula. After VCE Tamblyne performed in amateur theatre as well as working as a session violinist in various orchestras for musical theatre productions.
My association with music has been long standing. I have Diploma of Music, a Certificate IV in Training and Education and have been a musical all-rounder for over 30 years
Since the early nineties I have been involved in the Melbourne music scene, writing, performing and recording as a bassist and guitarist in the studio, on stage and on air throughout Australia.
