Piano Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

No matter what age or skill level you are now at, you can learn with creative enjoyment. With the right foundation set for correct learning, you will grow in your love and enjoyment of music that will last a lifetime.

There are several opportunities to perform and to showcase progress.

My pupils participate in several festivals, concerts and recitals throughout the year, as I am qualified as a member of the New South Wales Music Teachers’ Association (MTA), a registered teacher with the Directory of Music Teachers.

Regular recitals and workshops are held at my home studio where feedback amongst pupils is welcomed as a means to develop the “inner ear”.

The Ryde Festival of Music is a great way to enhance performance skill. Participants can enter any number of sections, popular being a performance by an Australian composer.

The Annual Concert and Awards Ceremony is a good opportunity to perform. With dates set around October, students aim for any number of awards including trophies. These are presented to pupils who’ve shown consistency and excellence during the year. This is an exciting event where pupils participate and listen to their peers.

There is also the option to complete a music theory examination: it is encouraged that each pupil undergo training in theory.

Reports are issued twice yearly with many incentives for making practise fun and rewarding.

Student Feedback

Debbie A. (Student)

We have been extremely happy with Liam's piano tuition over many years with Jennifer. She has always been positive and encouraging in her teaching manner. She has successfully supported Liam from a beginning student to his HSC music studies. Jennifer strives for her students to achieve at a high level while maintaining their enthusiasm for music. I would highly recommend her as a piano teacher.

Jennifer has been teaching my daughters piano since they were 6-7 years old. She is a highly experienced and dedicated teacher. Thanks to her patience and encouragement, both daughters have shown consistent progress with their practical and theory knowledge. They have achieved playing piano as a hobby far beyond my expectations, with one at Grade 8 and the other at Grade 6 practical. Both have also completed theory, at Grades 6 & 5. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a piano teacher.
