Beginner to Tertiary level piano lessons
I love music and I love science, but most of all, I love teaching.
These are the services that I provide:
The fun piano lesson that kids love. My goal is to enrich the child’s environment through musical learning. I’m sure you have heard ‘music makes you smarter’. Not necessarily true, but learning music helps to create more connections in your brain that helps you or your child to learn easier.
Adult piano lesson. As above, music helps to keep your brain cells connected, and therefore have some neuroprotective capabilities (as it is often reported). Other than this goodies, music is fun, + you get to show off on dinner parties.
Once playing is comfortable, we can prepare for examinations; AMEB, Trinity or ABRSM. I can take students at any grades or diploma level.
Advance and Tertiary Students:
4. Preparing for A.Mus.A or Diploma can be tough. Balanced repertoire and choosing the repertoire that brings out your strength will help you excel.
- I am based in Kingsford and able to take students from UNSW piano majors.
(This service is not a substitute for a healthcare provider and I will be acting as my capacity of a piano teacher)
6. Mid-advance student healthy playing. Unfortunately, most (40%-80%) of piano students (as suggested by multiple studies) at advance level suffer some level of pain and discomfort due to rigorous repetitive practice. However, education and other preventative measures could lower that risk. I will try and help to analyze the cause of discomfort and find better ways for you to play that piece.
Special needs students. I am experienced in teaching special needs students (child and adult). I have worked with Global Developmental Delay, ADD, ASD and Traumatic Brain Injury students. I will also be able to collaborate with health professionals to provide safe learning environment that complements their recovery
Injured pianist looking for alternative technique. Finger injuries such as mallet finger or boutonniere's deformity may require compensatory technique. I can also liaise with healthcare professionals for other playing-related musculoskeletal injuries such as RSI or carpal tunnel, by adjusting repertoire and technique.
