I am a qualified Music Teacher and Speech Pathologist and have been teaching piano, singing, and music theory to children and adults of all ages since 2003. In that time I have held singing and piano teacher positions at various Victorian High Schools and also have two years of experience teaching singing and piano in bilingual schools in Berlin, Germany. I have experience in preparing students for ANZCA, AMEB, VCE Solo Performance and Group Performance exams.
I love to teach lessons in a way that caters to each individual student, as everybody has a different style and taste! Most of all I want my students to look forward to coming to their lessons. I do this by creating a warm environment where they feel comfortable to express themselves and learn.
Some other background info:
My Speech Pathology qualification (Melbourne University) has given me extensive knowledge of voice physiology and allows me to teach healthy vocal techniques to people of all abilities. This qualification has also informed my solid understanding of child development, which I use to shape the progression of music lessons for children of many different ages.
I completed my Bachelor of Music (Jazz/Popular Singing) in 2006 with High Distinctions in Performance and Composition, and completed a Diploma of Education (Music) at Monash University in 2007, receiving a Dean's Award for outstanding academic results. I hold a current Working With Children Check.
