Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Arts, Grade 7 AMEB, Graduate Diploma Of Teaching, Monash University., Kodaly Training.
I have been teaching piano since 2002. It is my philosophy to teach children a love of music and enable them to reach their full potential. I have taught in groups of up to 5 children of primary school age. I have taught at both private studios and at primary schools as well as my own private students who have their lessons at my home.
I obtained my Bachelor of Music degree from Monash University and I am a member of VMTA. My school, Music Maestros has been teaching children to experience the joy of playing the piano for many years. My students learn to play an instrument in an environment that is safe and encouraging. The school uses a Yamaha Grand Piano. The individual achievements of each child are acknowledged and each child feels a sense of achievement at their accomplishments. Every child is encouraged to feel a sense of their own personal and individual response to music. The students are strongly encouraged to include pieces in their repertoire that are meaningful to them. Exam repertoire can be chosen from the Classical or the Piano for Leisure Syllabus which includes funky blues and jazzy syncopated pieces that are fun to play for school friends. Students eagerly participate in concerts throughout the year. Even theory seems like fun and is included in the regular lessons along with technical exercises such as scales. I enjoy teaching and performing. I have a Bachelor of Music (Monash University), and a Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Monash University. I perform with the Dandenong Ranges Orchestra. I am a qualified Primary School Teacher and an Instrumental Piano Teacher at Belgrave South, St Simon the Apostle and St Joseph’s in Hawthorn. Music Maestros looks forward to hearing from you!
