I’m a teacher at heart, which means I love to share my love of learning, specifically music. I have been a private piano/keyboard teacher since studying Music at university years ago, and have since also become a classroom music teacher.  I work one-on-one with students but also like to provide opportunity for my students to share their playing with others. Learning to play an instrument gives a person the skills to express themselves creatively in a very personal way which I regard as a precious gift. Most of us choose to listen to music and I believe that playing and creating music is a natural step in our musical experience, both for ourselves and to share in community with others.

Teaching Info

With many years of combined experience teaching piano/keyboard and classroom music, my focus is on fostering a love of music while developing both practical and theoretical skills, adapting my teaching approach to suit the individual student. Students will be gently guided to discover the many aspects of piano playing, including learning a variety of musical styles, technique, theory (useful, practical-based), and how to express themselves musically. Opportunity to compose, improvise, and perform, as well as to learn to play music through reading and/or by ear is given from the beginning, giving all students (including young beginners) the satisfaction of making music from their first lesson. I teach AMEB piano in preparation for exams if it suits the student. I encourage my students to challenge themselves, with lessons aimed at developing a sense of fun and enjoyment in playing their instrument and making and sharing music.
