Piano and Keyboard Lessons

General information

I teach children from around 7 years old through to adults of any age, beginners through to intermediate level players. I generally take students through one of several excellent general method books, while also including other material to suit individual tastes and goals. Lessons are normally weekly at the same day and time.

Topics Covered

Tuition is tailored to meet the needs of individual students. In general, this will cover reading musical notation, music theory, playing pieces, scales and exercises. You will learn to read music as you learn to play. Additional repertoire is added in according to your preferences. If you have a favourite pop artist, or favourite songs you would like to play, I can arrange these to suit your playing level.

What you'll need to begin lessons

You will need a method book appropriate for your level, which I will recommend after an initial assessment, and a piano or keyboard to practise on at home. For beginners, this can be a fairly inexpensive electronic keyboard.

Lesson Prices

Individual lessons - 30 minutes: $25.00 - 45 minutes: $35.00.

Terms and Conditions

Tuition fees are payable in advance, in full term or half term instalments for school children, or five week instalments for adults. If a lesson is unavoidably missed (e.g. through sickness or accident), it can be rescheduled within that period at a mutually agreed time. Payment for a missed lesson is not carried forward. You are reserving a space each week and I am not able to refill that space at short notice. Please arrange a lesson time that you can commit to attending each week. Any queries about these terms can be discussed when enquiring about reserving your lesson time.
