For beginners, depending on age group, I introduce learning how to read music along with learning how to position, finger action all graded according to rate of understanding and technical ability. Technical exercises are balanced with learning different styles, once again suited to the individual student. At the end of the year, I usually have a few weeks where students will choose what they practice.Show More Show Less

Throughout my time as a piano teacher I have learnt to understand and appreciate the different learning styles presented at lessons.
Understanding,development and enjoyment I believe are outcomes which come from planned lessons suited to the students style and ability.
Developing a good relationship with my students is of importance and influence style of lessons given. My students generally are long term.
I encourage structured learning, which incorporates but does not always include classical, modern, AMEB syllabus.
I have a strong background in working as an accompaniest, ballet rehearsals and entertainment.
Having lived in Brisbane for 30 years I have relocated to Victoria back with family and friends. I love the west coast of Victoria. And often go to the beach for long walks.
