Hi I’m Chris, I studied at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) at Edith Cowan University in Perth where I obtained a Masters degree majoring in composition. I have taught piano to people of all ages for over 10 years. In addition to teaching I have composed music for short films, several feature films, and live theatre shows. I have also been commissioned by several music ensembles and musicians. In 2018 I composed my first opera.
I’m easy going and approachable and teach on my British made Knight upright piano. I live with my wife Alice and young son Adrien (and cute dog Arnold!) in Heidelberg Heights.
I enjoy teaching music and believe in giving students a well rounded music education by incorporating different music styles (classical, contemporary, jazz, free improvisation) as well as music theory. Although I encourage students to take piano exams through the AMEB (Australian Music Examinations Board), I understand that exams are not suited to every student.
