I have been a piano teacher for over 30 years. I was originally a primary school teacher and have kept up my registration as a teacher in Qld.
I am a classically trained pianist and have successfully taught up to Gr 8 AMEB piano. I teach a variety of styles including classical, comtemporary, pop, rock and jazz. I incorporate elements of the “Simply Music” approach to learning piano – simplymusicpiano.com – which is based on using shapes and patterns. I have found this an exciting way to teach students. I’m hoping to become an accredited teacher to this approach.
I am in the process of gaining a Working With Children Check in NSW. I have the equivalent check for Qld.
Previously I taught in Gatton (Qld) with up to 35 students. I have now moved to Cheltenham, in Sydney, and am looking at establishing a teaching practice here. I live on Cheltenham Rd.
