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?

  • Have you ever wished you could compose or create special effects?

  • 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?

  Who am I?

  • My name is Giselle - someone who LOVES to teach piano!

  • A qualified piano teacher (A.Mus.A (Associate Diploma - AMEB)) with over 20 years' teaching experience, and who has been playing since 8 years of age!

  • A teachers' aide who has worked with special education students.  I am very patient!

  • Current Blue Card Holder and certificates in counselling, aged care and first aid

  • Former member of the GCC Choir

  • Wife and mother to three growing sons (I understand the demands of family!)

"I met Giselle many lessons ago expecting to find a stern, no-nonsense type teacher.  Instead, I found a warm, smiling young lady with very obvious people skills.  I learned to play piano as a child, then promptly left it all behind.  Then I met Giselle many years and a lifetime later.  She has given me the motivation to learn again, lessons I thought long forgotten.  Gisellle is very patient, takes each student along at a pace she thinks fit for each individual, complimenting and moving ahead each lesson as is needed.  To listen to Giselle play piano herself is a delight and motivates you to want to be able to achieve that level for yourself.  I have no hesitation in recommending her to teach piano"  Dulcie, 80 years

"I always believed that learning the piano was very difficult, and it is, but Giselle guides me through all the steps/notes with a friendly and professional attitude to help me enjoy my lessons.  I would highly recommend Giselle to anyone who wants to learn the piano.  Thank you for helping me to go this far in my music and I am looking forward to continuing my lessons"  Manuel, 70 years
