My name is Verity Wood and I'm a young, enthusiastic and creative person that loves teaching music. I have over 10 years of teaching experience and teach all ages. It's my philosophy that music should be accessible and easy for students of all ages regardless of previous music knowledge or experience.
I'm EXCELLENT with kids of all ages and love to see how quickly they learn. I have been involved with music my whole life, and find it's a great way to boost confidence, musicality, coordination and rhythm.
I have previously studied Music at the West Australia Academy of Performing Arts, have a Bachelor of Arts majoring in music and am working towards my Master of Teaching.
In my lessons, I aim for all my students to be able to read and understand music so that when I'm not sitting next to them during their practice time, they can work out any problems they come across.
I cater all lessons to the individual student's needs to maximise the learning progress. I work through a repertoire based system including popular music that exposes a student to as much of the music they enjoy playing as they want. I am able to take students through exams if that is something that is of interest and have consistently achieved high grades for those that have sat an exam. I can also offer guidance and support through learning to sing and play and songwriting.
I have a current Blue Card and am available for lessons either at my home address or at your location.
