While performing around Sydney as part of Ryan & Fi, I would often have people asking if I taught piano lessons.
Being a little hesitant initially (as though I loved playing and performing, I wasn't sure as to how great I would be at teaching) I eventually decided to take on a few lessons and found I really loved it.
Specialising in beginner to intermediate players, my teaching style is all about instilling the love and passion I have for piano, music, performing and composing into my students. I like to make the lessons fun and engaging with music related games, fun songs as well as songs students have an interest in and want to learn.
I have also taken some of my students through their early AMEB Grades with a few of my students recently passing their Preliminary Grade 1 and Grade 3 exams with High Distinction and Honours. For students that are interested in achieving their Grades, I teach from Preliminary Grade 1 to Grade 5 exams.
However, achieving Grades is not something I am insistent on and am very happy to teach the songs and music a student enjoys playing. For me enjoyment and passion for the songs you are playing should come before doing your Grades. John Lennon and Paul Mcartney didn't do their grades and they still became pretty good musicians :).
I teach in Sydney around the Lane Cove, Mosman, Cremorne, Neutral Bay, Willoughby and Chatswood areas and come to your home. I also teach some lessons over Zoom although face to face I do find is better especially for kids. All you need is a piano or keyboard and a love for music. A 66 - 88 note keyboard is recommended, although for beginners you can use something smaller.
If you are interested in lessons you can contact me using the contact form below. I am pretty booked up, but if I can't find a space I do have a waiting list for next term.
Cheers, and good luck on your musical journey,
