Simply Music is a remarkable Australian developed piano and keyboard program that has beginning students playing great-sounding contemporary, blues, classical and accompaniment pieces - immediately - from their very first lessons!
The method employs a unique "playing-based" approach that can be easily understood by children, teens, adults and seniors alike.
"Attending piano lessons with Helen Hull is sheer joy. The progress I have made and the number of tunes I have in my repertoire is nothing short of miraculous." Roz Pearson
“Helen has taught my daughter, Madeleine, to play the piano so rapidly and in such a relaxed and enjoyable way that I often rave to my family and friends about the program. I learnt piano in the traditional way as a child and teenager and never mastered being able to play without written music to begin with. The Simply Music method begins there. Right from the start Madeleine has learnt to simply ‘play’ the piano. I have noticed that she is finding it easy to understand written music now that it is being introduced. Helen herself is a delight. Warm, enthusiastic and encouraging it is no wonder that Madeleine loves her lessons.” Barbara Gordon, mother of Madeleine, age 10
“My wife and I joined this program when we retired and, yes, it’s all true. You can see your progress, it’s predictable, tangible, very rewarding and it’s really fun. Good piano players are a dime a dozen but gifted teachers are very rare, and Helen Hull is a truly gifted teacher. We just feel so privileged to be able to learn this program from her here in Hobart.” Rick and Gaynor Stillman
“The lessons are always very organised and conducted in a friendly and fun environment. Helen is thorough and I particularly like the way she gives each student the attention they need. Helen has unbelievable patience and the students, particularly Alec, look to her for her guidance. Very happy with the programme.” Cheryl Hastie, mother of Alec, age 7
“I began piano lessons with Helen two years ago. Since then I have learnt more about music and how to play than I learnt in 20 years of trying to learn with many different teachers. When I started with Helen, I did not have the confidence to play ‘publicly’. My play-list now covers about 60 songs. I am delighted with every aspect of Helen’s teaching, in particular I value the structured and methodical progression of learning. Helen’s presentation of new materials is clear and I always feel as if each piece is manageable no matter how difficult it may appear during her demonstration. I look forward to my lesson every week. I believe my self-confidence has increased immensely since I started as I have always wanted to play but never found the right teacher and/or method. So it has been a very healing experience, producing unexpected and amazing results.” Barbara Pasquier
"I am 58 years old and have always wanted to play the piano. In one month with Simply Music, I'm able to play five songs!" Lloyd Rich
