My name is Deânna Messina, and I am a piano teacher based in North Brisbane. I am in my final year of a Music Education degree focusing on classroom music for senior years, and my experience extends to piano education for primary years at various schools around Brisbane.
I'm passionate about connecting students of all ages and skill sets to a style of musical expression that they love. Through my years of study as a classroom music teacher, I have learnt that there are many ways students learn, and passion and enjoyment is foundational for a music experience that is enriching and lasts a lifetime! I have access to a broad range of technical and theoretical material that I can set you up with to ensure you're using material that you enjoy and love - or you can bring in what you would love to learn from home.
Whether you would like to:
Pursue formal grades through AMEB
Focus on improvisational techniques for jazz or contemporary settings
Learn a specific piece or song
Learn techniques and strategies for composition
Be introduced to piano and what it can offer you
I would love to partner with you!
I specialise in beginner and intermediate students of all ages.
Outside of education study, I am currently beginning to work on an aMus certificate through AMEB.
