My teaching method is a mixture of traditional, particularly Chopin's, ideas and modern approaches. Choosing the best teaching books and repertoire is crucial for both young and adult players. Equally important is to learn how to use practice time efficiently and effectively.
The music my students play displays a variety of styles, covering music from the 18th century to the present, including jazz and blues etc..
I have taught piano and composition since 1996 and my degrees are B.Mus and Phd (Melbourne Uni) M.A. (La Trobe) and a diploma in composition (Vienna). I have continued to perform as accompanist and in piano duets. Some of my students elect to take exams (AMEB, ANZCA) and have done well. Amongst my students are several adult learners. I continue to research the latest teaching literature and attend demonstrations. I keep in touch with parents and adults via SMS.
The travel charge is a flat rate. Young students generally prefer 30 minute lessons for which I charge $30. For advanced students and adults, I charge $45 dollars for 45 minutes or $60 per hour, but in this case I do not charge for the travel.
