Learning for lifelong enjoyment

How many times have you heard people say they learned piano as a child, but never play anymore? What keeps students playing after lessons stop is a broad musical education: not just passing exams, but the full range of piano playing, especially the ability to improvise, play by ear, and sight read easily.

A broad musical education

Your child will learn receive a broad piano education: a good technique, classical repertoire, sight reading, theory, ear training and improvisation. In the combination of these, students gain abilities that will be appropriate in many musical fields, such as playing in bands, accompanying singing, and playing in churches and retirement villages. They will gain an understanding and experience of music that will keep them enjoying music for life.

  "My daughter Isabella started piano lessons with Susan at the age of 7 and now, aged 16, is about to take her 8th grade exam. What an amazing journey. Under Susan's exceptional guidance she has developed into a wonderful musician who can play all styles of piano music. Susan has extensive experience, musical understanding and knowledge. Her approach is thorough and detailed. She is patient and encouraging, working with students to achieve their goals and ambitions. It has been awesome to watch Isabella's progress; her commitment, achievement and love of the piano are a testament to the quality of Susan's tuition. Susan has also provided many opportunities for performance, and to watch all of her students develop such confidence and pride in their accomplishments over the years has been truly inspiring."- Nerida, Marrickville

"My son’s piano performance at school was great. His piece really stood out from those of other students which frankly were technically well played but quite boring in terms of genre. It reiterates his growth since he has been playing with you and your unique approach to music and appreciation of broader range of composers. Thank you for all your work and support." - Lara, Ashfield
