I have been teaching music and movement, violin, piano and voice for the past 10 years. I specialize in supporting younger students while they are developing a foundation for a dedicated enjoyment and practice of music for life.
It is important for me to co-create an understand and promote a balance of practice, goal setting, and seeing how music fits in with day to day, week to week, and season to season aspects of life.
I am a very flexible, encouraging and patient teacher that chooses to be kindly firm when necessary.
I support students to discover a good foundation of music. Just as the needs of the student are dynamic, so are the materials, and teaching styles.
For example, with online learning, and changing times, I create a lot of my own music resources to be available for students and caregivers to access online, providing supplemental aural, rhythmic and notation support. I have found this very successful to students engagement in between weekly lessons.
Depending on the student, I work with AMEB exam repertoire, Piano Adventures, John Thompson, and other sporadic materials for piano (familiar, but don’t often use Alfred books); AMEB and Suzuki books (I am not suzuki trained, but learned suzuki and music reading as a child), and abacadabra for violin, to name a few. I am happy to co-decide with the family and/or student.
For improvising, jazz and singing, I support the needs of the student over following any particular method books.
