Over the years I have taught students of all ages from the very young (approximately age 7-8) up to Year 12 and including adults. I have prepared students for AMEB examination and accompanied them in examinations on piano where possible. I believe it is vital to discover early on the process of accompaniment, the sophistication and knowledge required on the part of the instrumentalist no matter the level of expertise. It has been very interesting to observe the differences between girls and boys at similar ages and the manner in which they learn. As a general rule, I encourage all my students to participate in AMEB examinations.
