In addition to a strong technical foundation, Kathy believes that it is important for students to enjoy learning music. Music learning should be a fun and positive experience – not only does this encourage students to progress, but also allows them to learn skills much more deeply. Kathy will also help students with theory and ear training. It is important for students to develop these skills as they allow a greater understanding of they music they play and enhance their musicianship.
Lessons will be held at Kathy's residence in Springvale South, or on Zoom. Please contact if you have any questions!
