Teaching since September 1981
Teaches special needs
Teaches students aged 8+
Hi, I have a background as a professional music educator in secondary and primary classroom and instrumental music. Queensland Conservatorium trained, I offer individualised tuition in piano, theory and all woodwind instruments.
In addition to promoting musical playing for pleasure, I offer AMEB exam preparation and vocal or instrumental accompaniment. I am keen to teach children and teenagers, including special needs, and recently added a special focus on adult learning styles. My goal is for each student to leave my lesson with increased confidence as a result.
Adult learner Don gave me the following testimonial:
"Ruth is experienced, friendly and knowledgeable and I found my lessons with her to be very rewarding..... structured yet still enjoyable."
Excited parent Sarah wrote this to me on receiving her son's 4th grade exam result:
"Once again, I want to thank you for your guidance, support and enthusiasm in preparing Zach for his exam. He got awarded an honours!!!!!!!!! He will be so pleased when I tell him this afternoon!!!!!"
Mother of two piano students Kelly recently said to me:
"You really understand the two very different learning styles of our son and daughter. We're very happy that they spend worthwhile time while with you, no matter what they're learning."
