Lessons

All lessons are available to primary school students and up from beginner to advanced level. My focus is on building a solid foundation of classical technique and musicianship upon which specific musical styles may be applied. Lessons will be tailored to the student's individual goals, abilities and interests.

Piano

Instruction in increasing dexterity, speed and strength of fingers; and improving coordination between the hands through exposure to a wide range of genres.

Singing

Instruction in building a rich and warm tone; increasing stamina, flexibility and range; and refining alignment and muscular coordination.

Theory & Aural

Learning about melody, harmony, structure and other basic musical elements of any composition; and their resultant sound from the page to the ear.

Examination Preparation

Guided preparation for practical and theory AMEB, ABRSM and Trinity examinations.

Performance Coaching

Eisteddfod, recital and general performance coaching based on movement and theatrical stagecraft technique.

Foreign Language Coaching

Italian, German, French and Spanish language help for singers using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) for natural sounding pronunciation.
