PIANO FOR KIDS
FUNDAMENTALS & FUN!
From a young age children need to learn rhythm, Aural skills, & singing songs, playing by rote even before they begin to read music. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on fun, confidence-boosting activities.
BEGINNERS PIANO LESSONS
I specialise in Beginners Piano Lessons, and know how to reach my students with the right balance of personalized attention, patience, practical training, and positive encouragement. I make learning fun through a variety of engaging activities both on & off the piano bench. Adult beginners are very welcome. Get in touch today to schedule a lesson at your convenience.
ADVANCING STUDENTS PREPARING FOR EXAMS.
EXAMS OFFERED IN AMEB SYLLABUS.
Many students choose to use a grading system to help measure their progress. As long as they also learn other repertoire from a variety of genres, this can be very helpful in achieving goals.
Most of my students use AMEB as the syllabus offers both a Formal & a Leisure option. I teach to the Grade 8 level & Certificate of Performance. I also offer Theory of Music tuition to Grade 5 level.
Contact me today to see how you can benefit from my wide range of services.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR TEACHING SERVICES?
We all want to know the bottom line - how much is your quality tuition going to cost?
I follow the guidelines set by my Association, QMTA. Fees are for a mimimum 10 week commitment of one State school Term: 30 minutes a week is $380; 45 minutes a week is $560; 60 minutes a week is $750. This fee guarantees you that I will keep your place just for you! Lessons are to be prepaid & can be paid monthly.
If week by week is chosen each 30 minute lesson is $45. This is the Casual Rate which often suits a busy adult.
WHERE DO YOU HOLD YOUR LESSONS?
My studio is an air conditioned room separate from the home but accessible for use of the bathroom. Students are comfortable winter or summer & parents can use the sofa while listening to their child's lesson. Parent presence is encouraged especially with young children. This helps with home practice reinforcing the lessons.
DO YOU HAVE SPECIFIC TEACHING QUALIFICATIONS?
My qualifications are in two areas:
1. A performance diploma, Associate in Music Australia
2. A teaching diploma in Queensland Secondary Education.
Also I complete many Professional Development workshops & webinars over the past 30 years which add to my ongoing education.
