Qualifications: A.Mus.A. Bachelor of Creative Arts (Music)
Years of experience:
I have been teaching for 30 years both in a school environment and also in my own private studio. Whilst studying at the University of Southern Queensland I was an accompanist for many of the instrumental students' exams and performances and also was a member of the Student Orchestra, Toowoomba Concert Orchestra and Darling Downs Sinfonia, taking part in numerous operas and concerts that regularly took place.
There are many and varied learning methods available to suit students of all ages. I do have a special interest in tuition for the young and prepare lessons designed around the individual needs of each child.
I am currently teaching at St. Saviour's Primary School, St.Ursula's College and Christian Outreach College (both primary and secondary). Students attend piano lessons during their school day, or afterwards as appropriate and are encouraged to prepare for AMEB exams, both theory and practical. I also teach in my home studio. Tuition is offered in both the traditional and Piano for Leisure syllabi and all aspects of musical development are covered - aural skills, general knowledge and technical work. For those wishing to learn for pleasure, this, of course, is also an option.
A gift voucher is an ideal present for those wishing to learn the piano. These can be purchased in five or ten week blocks and have no expiry date.
I have a small library of reference books/notes etc that are available for loan. Aside from this, the internet has many sites which contain great reference material that can be invaluable for exam study requirements.
