I teach beginner piano and theory with a passion to inspire a love of music in my students. While musical mastery does require hard work, I believe that the motivation to improve comes from a love of the beauty you are creating.
I am currently studying a BMus(Hons) at the University of Queensland and have been learning and participating in music-making for a number of years. While I have had the opportunity to complete multiple exams, primarily AMEB piano and theory exams, much of my musical experience has been through collaborative music-making in church and concert settings. This has taught me the importance of learning the theoretical foundations of music, to be able to understand how to build music with ease, even when you are under pressure.
Due to this, I incorporate music theory basics into all of our piano lessons, including both written musicianship and aural skills.
