I am an professional, Certified Simply Music Piano Teacher and offer fun and creative
Piano Lessons in Hobart!
Using the Simply Music Piano Method, I have students of all ages and experience playing
great sounding songs from their very first lessons!
Simply Music Piano Lessons employ a unique "playing based" approach. In contrast to
traditional programs which insist that beginning students learn to read music as a means
of learning how to play music, Simply Music students learn to play the piano first, before
they learn to read music. Learning to read music comes after learning to play, just as a
child learns to speak before learning to read, write and spell. In this way, students
are free to connect directly with the piano and experience the joy and satisfaction of
quickly learning to play lots of wonderful music from different musical styles. I begin
teaching students to read when they can play about 30 songs with joy and confidence.
This is usually within the first year of lessons.
I also involve my students in creative musical activities such as composition, ( ie
making up your own music), improvisation, song writing and arranging music. You
will also have the opportunity to share your music with others: accompanying people
singing and playing in ensemble groups. ( ie with other musicians playing different
I am passionate about sharing Simply Music with others! I have been involved with
this method for 9 years (3 as a tutor) and 6 years as a fully Certified Simply Music
Teacher. I never tire of the small miracle which which unfolds before me as I
guide students along this exciting and creative musical path. The rapid progress and
joy that I witness with each student inspires me!
I offer caring, professional tuition in both small groups (max. 3 students /group) or in
private lessons, Tuesday to Friday.
