Hello! I have over 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 focusing on teenage and adult students at all levels.

I have a Bachelor of Music specialising in Piano teaching from the School of Music, Melbourne University (now know again as The Conservatorium of Music), under Dr. Ian Hotham. I also have my A. Mus. A , a fairly good sense of humour and loads of patience - which is just as important in my opinion.

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 a Masters in Social Work (University of Melbourne) at the end of 2019. I really enjoy supporting students who suffer from anxiety, depression and PSTD. Piano lessons can be a wonderful experience for students struggling with their mental health as it provides a gentle and safe space for you to feel those difficult feelings with me alongside you every step of the way.

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!

Please note that I do not teach jazz improvisation.
