Having over 5 years of teaching experience, I have developed my own unique teaching style, focusing on the musical goals and aspirations of each individual student; whether that be to just enjoy the instrument their playing, become an expert, and even become their own artist and performer. As a teacher, I feel it is important to not only teach how to play the chosen instrument, but to also develop musicianship in my students so that they are not just pressing keys on a piano or singing a song, but are deeply understanding the musical choices being made and how their instrument and the music they are playing work together.

I specialise in singing, having been singing since I was 10 and recently graduated with a Bachelor of Music from Victoria University majoring in Vocals. During my degree, I studied music theory at a tertiary level and also continued to develop my piano skills, which I have been playing since the age of 4.

Vocal Lessons

In vocal training lessons I aim to teach students how to use their voices safely, alongside accessing their full potential to achieve any goals they have vocally; whether it be to learn one song at a time, learn how their voice works, work on repertoire they have been given from school or an outside source, prepare for a performance or even develop their artistry! In these lessons firstly I go through warm ups so the voice is ready to sing and do some work just like you would in a sport. These warm ups include making different sounds with your voice to engage different aspects of it, breathing and vocal exercises. Secondly, I go over different aspects of how we can develop technique/theory/musicianship, or anything else the student might be interested in. This is the part of the lesson that is very catered to them and their current needs/wants. Thirdly I apply what we have discussed in the second stage of the lesson in a song that the student wants to learn or a song that I give them that will help to develop these skills and apply them practically.

Piano Lessons

In the Piano lessons I follow the structure of the John Thompson piano books for beginners, following on to the AMEB Piano for Leisure series.
While working through the John Thompson piano series, students learn the foundations of piano playing such as reading notes on the staff, timing and rhythm, keys and key signatures, scales, dynamics and style, finger technique, sight-reading and much more.

With the AMEB Piano for Leisure books, students continue to develop their musicianship and piano skills to a more advanced level. In the Piano for Leisure series, exams are an option which involve earning a certificate to say that you have completed a particular grade of piano in the book series. These exams involve theory components which I would also teach during the lesson. However, if a student does not wish to sit the exam they do not have to, and are able to learn the songs from the books as they please. I also allow students to suggest songs they wish to learn and am able to teach them a version of the song that is suitable for their ability.

If the student wants to, I also integrate other aspects of piano playing and applicable music theory into the lessons such as playing chords and how to read chord charts, transposition, accompaniment, etc.

Currently I teach up to Grade 3 in piano, however I am constantly working on my own abilities in piano to further my skills and ability to teach higher grades.

Music Theory Lessons/VCE Music Tuition

The Music Theory lessons I conduct are very flexible in regards to what each student wants to learn or needs based on the theory they are learning in school or other music classes. I am able to take them through the Music Theory course that AMEB offers, or even construct my own music theory lessons and course based on the interests of the student.
In the theory lessons I can cover:

  • AMEB Theory- Developing the basic foundations of music theory
  • Songwriting and Composition
  • Analysing Music eg. what musical components are critical to the way a song is functioning and how they are effective
  • Aural theory eg. developing the ability to identify pitches, intervals, scales, melodies, chords, rhythms and other musical elements just by listening
  • Written theory eg. developing the ability to write and identify pitches, intervals, scales, melodies, chords, rhythms and other musical elements just by looking at them
  • Understanding theory to an advanced level; looking at complex chordal structures, reharmonisation
