I have had lessons from Greg for about 3 years and have learnt a lot. His enthusiasm for and knowledge of music is evident, and he is very patient and generous with his time. I’m an adult learner who has come back to the piano after a long break and am really glad that I did.
I am a mature-age student of Gregs and cannot speak highly enough of his teaching skills. Always patient, Greg continually makes me strive to do my very best. I have been learning now for seven years with Greg and in itself this speaks volumes about Greg’s professionalism. In my opinion, Greg is just the best. Highly recommended!
I have tried various piano lessons over the last two years for my children, and I am thankful to have finally found a teacher like Greg. He takes his responsibility as a teacher seriously and tutors my children in an honest and correct manner. Greg is clear about where they are up to and what they need to work on to progress. He accommodates and encourages my children’s interest and inquisitiveness and they look forward to his lessons each week. I wholeheartedly recommend Greg to anyone who asks me about piano lessons.
I am a 74 year old taking piano lessons for 7 years and 6 months. It has been an excellent learning experience for me, he is a extra ordinary teacher and very dedicated to is teaching he is good at explaining things and helping me understand the theory behind the music.
One favorite thing about Greg is that he will very gently push you to do your utmost best with every piece, paying attention not only to technical details but to the emotion and story that every piece should express, he does this kindly and patiently.
I look forward to my lessons each week and would wholeheartedly recommend anyone who asks me about piano lessons.
Greg has been teaching my three very different age and level children for a number of years now. He seems to understand each child and what pieces they are likely to enjoy playing. He teaches theory through the practice at the various levels to ensure the kids are understanding the music they are learning to play.
I started learning piano with Greg back in late 1978 when I was 7 years old. I was a student until late 1988 and completed AMEB pianoforte eighth grade with an A grading, AMEB Music Theory fifth grade with 94% and VCE Music.
Greg is a very patient teacher who has given me piano and music knowledge I still enjoy to this day. It has also given me extremely good memory recall and very strong fingers. I have a tendency to type very hard on a computer keyboard!
Piano playing skills are something that can stay with you for a lifetime, even long after the formal lessons have finished.
Thanks for the gift Greg.
I left my previous music teacher, disheartened and losing a previous passion for the piano. I found Mr Norman via this website and decided to give him a try. Mr Norman was not only patient and informative, but also full of knowledge about the history and the theory behind piano playing, integrating these naturally into his lessons to deliver a well-rounded musical education. After these five years, I can safely say that he has reignited my desire to learn and play the piano.
