I offer a focussed, friendly and comprehensive piano tuition service to students in the central and southside Brisbane area.
I hold my BMus in Classical Piano, AMusA in Piano and GradCert in Composition and and am currently undertaking a Masters at QLD Conservatorium. I have given numerous recitals within QLD Conservatoirum, publicly and privately and have performed at the Sunshine Coast University and as soloist with Queensland Philharmonia Orchestra. I received an award in the 2015 Sydney Eisteddfod for Composition, a Griffith University award for Academic Excellence in 2015 and recently won the 2017 MTAQ Queensland Composers Competition with the winning composition to be published nationally through Wirripang.
I have been teaching privately for a number of years now, and tailor my teaching approach to the needs and abilities of each individual student, allowing them to develop skills at a comfortable pace and in a supportive environment. I have had much experience going through the AMEB (Australian Music Examinations Board) from beginner to advanced level examinations (both as candidate and enroller) and specialise in preparing students for these exams and in the classical piano repertory. However, I believe every student learns differently and the individual goals and motivations that set these processes in motion will always differ too. (even if they're very young!) So, I therefore try to tailor my methods to best enable each individual to develop/achieve their goals with ease and joy!
I also assist with school music work and assessments (incl. Year 12 Music Extension) and tutor students who compose and/or have an interest in composing.
CURRENT IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The most important pre-requisite for in-home tuition is that the student have a keyboard or piano at their disposal. Lessons cannot take place without one.
My tuition service hinges on the fact that I offer lessons to students in their own homes. Due to the nature of this service, I only offer it within the central and inner-southern brisbane suburbs. (see the serviceable area map in the pictures above) This is so I can maintain economic travel times between a more localised number of students. For potential students that are located on borderline areas, just ask about your specific location, as in some cases, scheduling may still allow me to get to you.
I’m currently only taking on students ABOVE 6 years of age and who are not immediate beginners. (have had AT LEAST 4 months of lessons) This is due to already having filled my quota of very young, complete beginner students. (Unfortunately in this case, their mostly shorter lesson times place a limit on my ability to take on further students)
For multiple siblings being taught in the same home, the fee will reflect the total length of time for all lessons. i.e - two separate 15 minute lessons would be $30
