General Details

Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science

Hi there! I teach beginners all the way through to advanced students, and while the majority of my students are aged between 4 and 16, I also have a handful of adult students. My lessons are on average 30 minutes long and involve one-on-one practical, theory and musicianship work. I will always adjust the content of my lessons according to my pupil’s individual wants and needs.

I guide my young beginners through the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randal Faber — these books cleverly incorporate practical work, note reading, composition, aural training and sight reading into one course.

I encourage my students to sit AMEB or ANZCA exams as it provides them with great external feedback on their progress as well as a solid goal to work toward each year.

For students who don’t wish to do exams, I typically guide them through their own choice of repertoire (usually pop/contemporary pieces). I usually provide my own, playable arrangements of pieces that pupils have requested to learn.
