I have been teaching piano since 2010. I took a break for the last few years and have started up again in my new residence in South Melbourne. I seek to build a new student base in this area.
Over the years I have performed mainly vocally with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Chorus, Melbourne Opera, XL Arts, the Australian International Opera Company and PEM Studios Melbourne.
My professional opera chorus debut was with the Australian International Opera Company touring The Marriage of Figaro around China. I performed as Lady Bertram in Johnathan Dove’s Mansfield Park with XL Arts as a opera solo debut. Other operatic projects include, Dido and Aeneas, Un Ballo in Maschera and Tannhaüser. Choral works include Beethoven 9, Messiah, Mass in Time of War, Faure’s Requiem and Missa Solemnis. I studied Classical Voice at the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music at Monash University after shifting from Music Theatre to Opera.

Specialising in coaching children and beginners.
With 10 years of piano teaching experience and 5 years singing teaching experience, let me help you learn or improve your craft.
I follow the AMEB syllabus and can prepare students for these exams. With access to a large library of music, we can explore pieces outside the syllabus for fun! I use 2 pianos for lessons, students play the upright piano and I play the electric piano in order to play with the student or demonstrate where helpful.
I place a great emphasis on technique right from the start in a playful and enjoyable way. I believe we all learn most effectively when we are having fun!
