I am now only taking adult and teenage students of all levels.
I have a Bachelor of Music from Melbourne University, as well as my A.Mus.A, but more importantly, I have 30 years experience teaching both privately, in my own business and in schools. I was the Director/Owner of The Music Collective for 10 years, and now teach exclusively from my home based studio.
From 2005 to 2010 I was the Conductor and Musical Director of Squawkestra (www.squawkestra.com.au), which is an orchestra for adult beginners, so I have a soft spot for adult learners. Teaching adults, whether it be as a complete beginner, or a returning player is my particular interest. You are never to old to start, or if you always regretted giving up as a moody 13 year old - yes, you can get back into it now. And go well too!
I have a strong interest in mental health and will be completing my Masters in Social Work (University of Melbourne) at the end of 2019. I have an interest in supporting students who suffer from anxiety, depression and PSTD.
Please feel free to contact me and have a chat about lessons, you will get a much better sense of my style of teaching and I will be able to understand your interests.
All students must own their own instrument - piano or good quality keyboard. You can't learn if you have nothing to practise on!
