I am a classical pianist who has been playing for twenty two years, accompanying for fourteen years, and teaching for ten. I received my A-mus A diploma at fourteen and have studied with Clemens Leske and Gabriella Pusner. I have been sponsored by Steinway since 2012. I am a registered Creative Kids provider, so school aged students receive $100 toward lessons with me.
My teaching style is highly personalised and includes formal AMEB exam and audition preparation, fun introductory lessons, home schooling and music theory, and special needs education. An ongoing emphasis is placed upon efficient practice techniques, varied learning strategies, musical games, and improvisation.
After ten years of working and performing in Sydney's Inner West and North Shore, I've returned to the South Coast, where I grew up, and am looking to provide piano and theory lessons to the next generation. I teach and accompany privately in Batemans Bay, as well as online on Zoom and Skype. I provide commissioned recordings, analyses, and accompaniments on request. I also do consultations and mock exams for students looking for another perspective before exams.
Students of all ages and abilities are welcome.
