It is a passion of Chermaine’s to help students of all abilities and ages to reach their musical potential and goals. A love of music and character are, to Chermaine, more important determiners of musical success than natural musical ability alone.
With patience, encouragement, and a sensitivity to the individual needs of each student, she strives to provide students with a wholistic musical education by means of cultivating an understanding of the musical language, developing aural skills, performing skills, efficient practice techniques, and an awareness of mechanically efficient playing habits. It is her ultimate goal as a music educator to provide students with the knowledge and tools that allow for and encourage independent thinking, alongside the development of their individual artistic voice. She is experienced in preparing students for written and practical AMEB examinations, as well as HSC aural exams. Alongside teaching privately, she is a piano teacher at a prestigious private school located in Sydney’s North Shore.
