Students will learn the basics of piano technique, articulation and stylisations, scales and arpeggios to refine the above, music theory as it applies, how to read sheet music, aural work, how to take their skill and apply it to their taste in music and, most importantly, how to practise. Structure of lessons is fluid depending on what needs work or what the student would like to work on but will include practise of scales and arpeggios and any pieces the student is working on at the time. I occasionally allocate a certain amount of time to just listening to music that I think will be helpful to the learning process.Show More Show Less

I'm Quinn and I am an avid music student. I don't say that to mean that I am studying music but that I absolutely love to learn, and it is my love of learning that drives my love of teaching. I enjoy immensely the satisfaction of seeing a student of mine grasp a concept or nail that technique or piece they've been working on.
I have been playing piano since age five, but only in high school did I decide to throw myself into music. I found a love of music theory and the mechanisms and maths that are behind all of the great pieces and hit pop songs that we love. After completing my Grade 8 Practice of Piano I graduated top of my class in Music and went on to apply for and enrol at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), majoring in music composition and technology. While I decided not to complete my course, it was an incredibly rewarding time in my life and further solidified my love of music.
I am still challenging my piano playing today, pushing my technical ability into more and more difficult and beautiful pieces.
I welcome anyone who may want to learn the piano, whether it be absolute beginners or not. I am looking for adult beginners as well; there is much good research to suggest that it is never too late to learn!
