All of our teachers have a minimum of two tertiary education qualifications. A Bachelor degree, and an additional certificate, diploma or Masters in music or education.
Our core values of Educate, Encourage, Inspire, Play and Belong will ensure that you are receiving the very best a personalised education can offer.
Educate: A strong pedagogy, qualified teachers and high expectations, paired with kindness and care, create confidence and self-esteem in children through structure and success.
Encourage: A warm and friendly atmosphere, happy and caring teachers, positive reinforcement, a can-do attitude, and belief in our students create an environment where children can find excitement in learning, happiness in themselves, and a desire to discover more.
Inspire: Interesting teachers with multiple skills, one-on-one attention, kindness and genuine interest in the journey of each child mean children know they are valued, cared for and will be supported when they reach for the stars.
Play: Curiosity, creativity, imagination and play create an environment where children love learning, experiment and try out new things, and where mistakes are valuable pathways to new adventures.
Belong: Five levels of belonging: the self, the mentor, the ensemble, the family, and the community, ensure that children and families feel strong, centred, supported and connected through their Strings West journey and beyond.
We are well-organised, customer-service focused, have strong classroom management skills, appreciate the unique qualities of every child and bring a wide range of learning styles, techniques and methods to the table.
We are willing to experiment, learn new techniques, share ideas and work with students and families to bring about the best results possible results for each child.
