Hello! I'm a passionate teacher who has been learning and performing classical piano for 12+ years.

  • Multiple prize winner at the Adelaide Eisteddfod Society (2014-2020)
  • Regular community music performer (2019-present)

See an outline of the piano lessons I'm offering below:

  • I work constructively and enthusiastically with piano students of diverse abilities, ages and musical backgrounds

  • Engaging learning environment where students are encouraged to ask questions, develop their musical style and expression, and adopt a motivated learning approach by pursuing mini-goals each week

  • Familiar with AMEB syllabus and exam requirements, thus able to guide students keen on challenging themselves with piano exams through selecting repertoire, refining performance strategy, etc.

  • Lesson content and structure can be tailored to the preference of the student - possible focuses include technical work, music theory / musicianship, piano for leisure, aural training, sight reading, learning music history and freestyle composition (this can be discussed during the first orientation lesson and is always flexible thereon)

  • Lesson duration can range between 30-90min to suit a student's piano proficiency, preference and need e.g. in the context of upcoming AMEB exam preparation

  • First orientation lesson free
