Having experience with both classical and contemporary teaching styles has lead me to understand the importance of students learning music from a variety of angles, and has also lead me to understand that some approaches will work for some students whereas they may not work for others. I pride myself on being adaptable to my students needs; whether it is exams you are wanting to prepare for, you want to learn a new hobby, you're a singer wanting to accompany yourself, you need mentorship on your career, you want to learn by ear or you want to read music, what ever it may be, I have no doubt that I can help you accomplish what you set out to do.
I am genuinely passionate about nurturing the growth of budding musicians, I want to see you realise your full potential and have fun at the same time. Music is a part of all of us, and I believe the teacher needs to have a genuine interest in the students to build a friendship & trust which is vital to their progression.
I'm a 25 year old pianist, vocalist, professional performer and songwriter with a Bachelor Degree in Music (Contemporary Performance) from The Australian Institute of Music, my Associate Degree in Performance from The Conservatorium of Music (TAS), and 5 years teaching experience.
I have been classically trained in piano since I was 5 years old, and at the age of 12 also began to incorporate a more contemporary approach to my playing, focusing around accompaniment, chord progressions and structure, jazz theory and aural skills. At the age of 15 I began my vocal training, and then went on to major in contemporary singing at University.

Perfect! Laura is an attentive, caring, friendly and patient teacher with great communication skills. Just perfect for me as a fairly nervous pupil :-)
John has been a wonderful pupil, very eager to learn and always punctual to his lessons. He asks questions when he is unsure which helps him progress faster. All in all, it has been lovely getting to know him.
