Krishna is a classical pianist, actively performing gigs in Melbourne on a regular basis. Graduated with Honours in Music Performance at the Melbourne Conservatorium, Krishna has been teaching for the past 13 years both privately and at music schools. She teaches students from beginner to diploma level, and especially loves teaching young children. She strives to connect with each student to understand their individual needs and musical aspirations.

Being classically trained from a young age as well as being a highly skilled exponent of the legendary Taubman approach, she is very experienced in helping students develop a strong technical and artistic foundation. Through this approach, students can learn to play in the most natural and efficient manner without the risk of pianistic injury. Moreover they will also learn to perform with greater technical security, variety of sound and expressivity, allowing them to discover their own unique potential.

Young students will also enjoy learning Music theory and literacy through a series of Music Mind Games (created by Michiko Yurko) as part of their lessons, a unique approach that has been hugely popular amongst parents and teachers around the world.

Concerts are organised annually for students in a semi-formal and relaxed setting on a beautiful Ronisch Grand piano at her home. While some students may simply want to learn to play for leisure, Krishna also helps prepare students for AMEB and ABRSM examinations in both theory and practical.
