Piano Lessons

Levels Taught: Intermediate, Advanced

I tailor all my lessons for the needs of the individual student. Everyone is different and I approach beginners of all ages according to their needs and expectations. My teaching style is very traditional as I was classically trained. But my musical interests cover all styles and I am happy to teach whatever is best for the individual, whether driven to pass AMEB exams, or just play for pleasure.

About

  • Male

  • Teaching since 1982

  • Teaches students aged 7+

Hi, I have background as a professional accompanist and choral director. For many years I was a member of the CBSO Chorus in the UK, under the inspired leadership of Simon Halsey and Sir Simon Rattle. I was awarded the ARCO diploma and was for 10 years a parish church organist and choir director. I have prepared and conducted choirs in the UK and Australia. I offer individualised tuition in piano, theory and voice coaching.

In addition to promoting musical playing for pleasure, I offer AMEB exam preparation and vocal or instrumental accompaniment. I have tutored students from 7 to 70+. My goal is for each student to leave my lesson with increased confidence in their abilities, a bonus is that I have successfully coached students through AMEB exams gaining honours.

Linh, the mother of two piano students recently said to me:

"I really appreciate you travelling to teach my son and daughter each week. We're are so happy that they continue to make good progress, and always enjoy your lessons."
