Teaching Method: Individual (private) lessons only.

Background Information:

I grew up in Merewether learning the piano from the age of 5 years. I have played in restaurants, concerts, weddings etc and sat for practical and theory tests run through AMEB. My whole life has revolved around music ranging from piano, drums, guitars, parties, nightclubs, DJing etc till the present where I still play the piano for recreational pleasure and enjoy any music I can produce, play or listen to. I also have recording facilities to help students focus on their practical skills, finesse, and most of all, their technique. Being a piano teacher in Newcastle I believe it is very important to search around for the right teacher. Not only look for a teacher that has good rates but definitely a teacher who has the experience and qualification as a lot of teachers will only learn to a certain level and believe they have the knowledge and skills to teach others. Where as this may be the case however they will also lack in the knowledge that is vital to understand music to its full degree.
