I'm an experienced piano tutor and a registered music therapist, currently residing in Taroona, Hobart, After graduating from Queensland University of Technology with a BA in drama and music in 1999, I began to spread my passion for the benefits of the arts far and wide. Whilst working as a Gymboree Play and Music Leader and programme developer for 2 years in Brisbane, I began tutoring extensively throughout Queensland primary schools in piano and drama.
I furthered my training with courses at NIDA, the Actors Centre (Sydney and London) and HB Studios in New York and completed my Masters in Music Therapy at UTS in 2013. Additionally, my involvement in community youth theatre groups in Australia, Canada and the UK was constantly ongoing. In the UK, I was employed as a Manager and workshop leader for Perform Media London, a company dedicated to improving the confidence and social skills of 4-8 year olds using drama, dance and music. Back in Sydney, I have developed and delivered regular drama workshops for the Australian Theatre for Young People, Brent Street Studios and Kick Performance Group.
I also run my own company that delivers music based programs to corporate teams.
I offer private piano and/or voice lessons and music therapy sessions in my Taroona home or I could travel to you for a small fee. I specialise in young beginners but happy to take on students of all ages. I also cater for all styles and student preferences.
