Profile Summary

I am a Primary School teacher with a background in specialised music programming, instruction and performance. Combining classroom teaching experience and private tuition, I offer both group and individual classes in music instruction and piano studies. I have a particular interest in the application of the Orff, Kodaly and Montessori methods in music education, and work from my own comprehensive music programme aimed at developing the learner's musicianship, adapted according to the learner's needs. I prepare students for examiniations and perfomances and also provide theoretical and aural instruction, and learning for enjoyment. I offer weekly classes for children and adults, from beginner to advanced, usually in hourly or half-hourly blocks at a rate of $60 p/hr. I teach in my home after school hours or travel to the student's home. Arrangements for group or varied lessons can be made.
