Want to learn Piano?
I am currently teaching students ranging from 3 years old to 60, beginner to advanced. I let the students guide their learning; if they want to do exams we do that. If they want to learn chords and play along to songs on the radio, we do that too.
I make sure that all my students can read music notation, have a basic understanding of musical terms and markings, and get a chance to play a wide range of music no matter their interests.
I have played piano most of my life, starting when I was 4 years old alongside my grandfather. He was a Jazz musician, playing in bands around Geelong. He would wear a hole in the carpet with his enthusiastic foot tapping!
I started formal lessons at Monea Music Centre (now Oxygen College) when I was 6, and had lessons there until I was 18. During that time I completed practical exams up to Grade 7 and theory up to grade 4. I also had 2 broken arms which my teacher was not happy about. There is a trophy on the front desk for Student of the Year which I achieved in 2004.
I was a member of the Sweethearts in my final years at high school and played gigs around the country.
