Overview
Biography

I have taught piano for 26 years to adults and children from ages 4 upwards. I have early childhood music training and a background performing as a contemporary keyboard vocalist and jazz singer. For piano I specialize in beginner music skills, note reading and theory. I also encourage creativity with improvising, and embellishing arrangements of modern styles. I encourage music for pleasure, and life long playing skills. Some of my students choose to do exams in ANZCA or AMEB programmes, with a focus on modern styles. However students can also do traditional and classical styles if preferred. I also encourage the learning of chord charts and lead sheets, with chord symbol language , so students can fit into bands at a later stage if they like. Overall it is to produce a well rounded musician with a love of music. I also design specific curriculums for different students’ needs including those that want to sing and accompany themselves on keyboard.
