Why lessons?

  • Have you ever wanted to learn to read music, or to just "sit down and play" the piano?

  • Do you have some favourite songs or pieces that you want to play...classical, pop, jazz, or even from YouTube or gaming?

  • Do you need help choosing the right version of online printed music to suit your ability?

  • Are you learning online, but just need some help?!

  • Are you looking for a qualified, experienced teacher for your child or children?  

  • Do you think you are too old to begin lessons, or "to take up from where you left off"?

  • Are there pieces you have always admired, but thought too difficult for you?

  • Do you want to challenge yourself mentally and improve your memory and coordination?
