Nadia has approximately 30 years experience in teaching classical guitar, at primary, secondary and tertiary level. She nurtures students with the aim to support their development as outstanding musicians who strive for excellence in playing the guitar.
Her qualification as a Suzuki Method Guitar Teacher has supplemented her advanced knowledge of guitar technique, and interpretation, and gives her a solid foundation to teach children from the age of 4. The Suzuki Method of teaching aligns with her belief in every child’s ability to become excellent guitarists and musicians.
