I provide Classical piano and theory lessons to beginner to advanced students. My students have successfully passed AMEB piano exams, music theory exams, and received prizes at local eisteddfods (and of course, many just learn for fun!). Each lesson is tailored to the students' needs and goals, and I focus on developing not only a good playing technique, but also a deep knowledge of music and innate musicality.
I have 17 years of performance experience, and over the last 5 years, I have taught over 50 students in total. I graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music with my Bachelor of Music Performance.
In recent years, I was the winner of the 4MBS Chamber Prize, Minnie May Bussey Prize, Ruby Cooling Prize and the Basil Jones Sonata Prize. I was also the recieipient of the Margaret Anne Kerrison Pianoforte Prize for the highest exam result in second year and the Queenslander Foundations Prize for the highest exam result in first year at the Queensland Conservatorium. I was also a participant in the Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition and Festival.

Perfect! Very good with children & a great teaching style.
Toki is a supportive and positive teacher! She is a hardworking, experienced and talented pianist which makes her a confident and knowledgable teacher. Her lessons are fun and engaging so I would recommend her to any aspiring learner or pianist!
I have known Toki for four years and performed chamber music with her on many occasions. She is a passionate and committed musician and a highly skilled pianist with a wealth of knowledge to pass on. She has grown her studio significantly over the past few years and I know her to be a very dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who wants the best for all her students. I highly recommend Toki for anyone wishing to learn piano or hone their existing skills!
