We only teach adults. Mature teenagers are welcome to book a free trial lesson, but please note, we don't offer lessons for children under 13 and our lessons are designed with adult-learners in mind
We currently teach a beginner student who is 74...so don't let age stop you!
Must be able to speak and understand English
We're based in Melbourne (Australia), but you can learn from any location, as long as you have access to an internet connected device that you can use in practice sessions
Must have a piano or keyboard to learn on
Any level. You may or may not have learned previously, and that's totally fine with us! We meet you at whatever level you're currently at
Complete beginners are welcome and encouraged. We actually love teaching adult beginners! 🌟
We're probably not the best fit for dabblers or casual "once every now and then" learners. We're for students who actually want to learn, and learn properly!
We focus on teaching classical and modern classical music, with an emphasis on learning the likes of Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin etc. But as part of your "well rounded musical training", you'll also learn to play chords and read chord-charts. However, please note that you won't be learning any Justin Bieber with us. If you're looking to bash out a few pop songs, we're probably not the right fit for you.
