Hailing from Brisbane, Hamish Jamieson completed his Bachelor of Music at Queensland Conservatorium in 2019 where he studied under Meta Weiss and Molly Kadarauch. During his studies, Hamish was the winner of the 2018 Basil Jones Sonata Prize and participated in masterclasses with Umberto Clerici, Howard Penny and David Requiro.
A significant highlight of Hamish’s undergraduate education has been his involvement with Ensemble Q. In 2018, he was invited to play in a chamber group with renowned musicians Andrew Haveron, Tobias Breider and Trish O'Brien for one of Ensemble Q’s concerts, as well as their production of Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos conducted by Simone Young later that year. In 2019 Hamish was invited again to play in their production of Otto Nicolai’s The Merry Wives of Windsor.
In 2019, Hamish was accepted into the Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) seasonal programs as well as their Chamber Players and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) Fellowship programs. Hamish is now a casual musician with the ASO. At AYO Chamber Players, Hamish had the opportunity to work with the vibrant Dover Quartet and legendary double bassist Edgar Meyer.
Hamish’s passion for music is wide and all-inclusive. In addition to his classical training, Hamish has found growth as a jazz saxophonist and improviser.
In 2020 Hamish will commence training at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) under Howard Penny.
