Scott has recently won the Private Teacher Award (Teaching Shield) 2017 for keyboard instrument ( Pianoforte) Grade 7 to Licentiate ( LmusA) category for his excellence in teaching the piano. It’s the most prestigious award from the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) NSW.
Currently a piano tutor for UNSW music students, and for several years invited consultant for Sydney Eisteddfod piano section and an adjudicator for 1st Sauter Piano Competition Sydney, Scott has been having a busy full time teaching schedule for more than a decade, but he is happy to meet new students, especially if you have been trying to learn for a while without much breakthrough- he can “diagnose” what are the bottlenecks that stop you from progressing and therefore help you to overcome. Experienced in teaching prodigies, Beginners are most welcomed of course. With his brilliant students records, he can definitely help you improve to another level.
