« Joanna is the perfect teacher for my daughter. She responds to her students’ interests in musical style and genre and challenges them to be better each lesson in a supportive and kind manner. Her communication is always professional and respectful. She has developed in my daughter a real love for learning the art of both learning and piano. I sincerely commend Joanna to parents looking for a competent, kind and all round brilliant role model for musical kids. »

I teach piano online, to students in Australia and overseas. Based in Queensland, I am Blue Card-registered, and teach classical, pop songs and jazz. I teach in English, but speak some French and Cant

Methodology

The important thing to me is that you genuinely want to learn. I want to see effort and I care about that more than any “natural talent”. I use the Piano Adventures lesson book series and you will work from a book at a suitable level. We can also learn music of your choice, like popular classics, or pop songs you like to sing. It’s important to play music that you like, because that’s what it’s all about! I regularly enrol students for examinations and we can do that too if you wish. I prepare students well and would not enter you unless I was confident that you are ready and will have a good experience from sitting an exam.
I usually connect using Zoom, FaceTime and Skype. But I’m happy to use other apps. You need an iPad or other tablet, laptop or a phone.

Background

I have been a piano teacher since 2013. I am based in two schools, and teach private students online. I want to grow online because it’s great to both teach and learn in the comfort of your home. It’s also very efficient, and I like technology and all its possibilities. I feel my role as a teacher is to help you discover the joy of creating music; how to read and understand notes, how to play and express yourself. Making music creates happiness, whether it’s with other people or on your own. You are not lonely when you have music in your life. I have some students with learning challenges, and teaching them is a special privilege, as is having their parents’ trust. I especially want those students to have all the benefits that reading, listening to and making music brings. Here are teaching posts on my blog (concealed information)

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $60/h

Details

A single piano lesson is usually half an hour, so that would be $30 AUD for a lesson. If you wish a longer lesson like 45 minutes for $45 AUD we can do that.

Our students loved their piano lessons with Joanna! I was always amazed by not only their growth in playing ability, but the development of their passion for learning. The students were always eager for their lessons and Joanna often had a long waiting list to secure a lesson time, a testament to the quality of her teaching!

Joanna is awesome, she has more patience for children learning music than anyone I have come across. Not to mention she has the ability to recognise not all styles of teaching fit every child. My child will forever have the love of music due to Joanna’s kindness, patience and talent for music. I would recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning as a beginner or more advanced students!

My daughter had a few changes in piano teachers at school but Joanna helped my daughter to adapt and settle to those changes quickly. Joanna has enabled her to grow in confidence to be able to pass her first AMEB exam with an honours.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Joanna as a piano teacher.

We hit the jackpot when Joanna applied for the piano teaching role at our school. She is incredibly thorough, with a calming nature and has high expectations of her students whilst still encouraging them.

Our students all enjoy lessons with Joanna.

Aside from her teaching, she is great to work with, with all aspects of her role carried out consistently to the highest standard.

We have Joanna teaching our daughter piano, we started off on keyboard and my daughter loves it so much we have just bought a piano and I am also going to get lessons. Joanna is so good with our daughter she has just thrived and enjoys every lesson, and hopefully I will be the same. I have wanted to learn to play ever since I can remember and watching our daughter grow and loving playing the piano fills me with confidence that I will to :)

My boys love their lessons with Joanna. Her calm and gentle manner helps them to relax and enjoy their lessons. She has sparked their enthusiasm, encouraging them to expand their abilities and learn new things. We couldn't be happier with Joanna, she's a wonderful teacher.

I was looking for a new piano teacher and I heard about Joanna through family.
While I’ve only done a few months worth of lessons with her, I can already see a huge improvement in both my piano and music skills. Joanna’s lessons always leave me excited and encouraged to practice what I’ve learnt. Even on busy days I find that Joanna’s kind and calming demeanour helps me settle down and teaches me to appreciate the music in front of me. Joanna is an amazing teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone interested in finding a teacher. She has not only taught me piano but also to appreciate the music.

Joanna, is a very thorough teacher I am learning the piano, in my mid sixties...Joanna, has helped me persevere and continues to encourage me, with correct timing.

I now, know, most of the notes, after a short period of time

I have heard Joanna play in music venues...and liked what I heard. I know her passion and love is for music....and I would highly recommend her as a music teacher

Joanna,is a very likeable person, who takes pride in her work and will make sure your child or her other students will know, how to play that instrument
