Becoming a Student With Us

  • Book a Free Trial Lesson

    Learning the piano (not to mention, finding the right teacher) can feel overwhelming. Before settling on us, we'd love to meet you, show you how you will learn at Virtual Piano Academy and give you a chance to test us out to see if we're the right fit for you 😀 You can book your free trial lesson below.

  • Attend Your Free Trial Lesson

    Once you've booked your free trial lesson, you'll be sent a confirmation email and a Zoom link. Logon at the agreed time. During your lesson, we'll ask you about your goals, what you'd like to learn, and answer any questions you might have. If you're not a complete beginner, we'd love to hear you play something :) Your free trial is 30-minutes long.

  • Decide If You Like Us

    If you don't like us 😭, there's no pressure or obligation to take lessons with us. That's exactly what the free trial is intended for - to give you the opportunity to meet us, learn how lessons at Virtual Piano Academy work, and decide if it's for you! We believe in the value and quality of our education, but if you decide we're not the right fit for you, that's totally cool!

  • 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/your child can use in practice sessions

  • Must have a piano or keyboard to learn on

  • Any level or style

  • 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!

Amy's unique style has been sought-after for collaborations on numerous well-known screen projects, including writing music for children's animation series Bluey (you may have watched this with your kids?!); beloved Aussie drama Home + Away; long-running TV drama series Winners + Losers and a slew of other films, games and TV shows for National Geographic, Netflix, 21st Century FOX, Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel.

Amy has worked internationally on a number of projects, and has even worked with Hollywood film maker James Cameron (Dir. Titanic, Avatar) on his documentary Deepsea Challenge 3D, for which she was nominated for an Australian Academy Award (AACTA). Amy has also written music for the Melbourne, and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras; the Australian String Quartet, the Song Company and has even composed a fanfare for The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir AD, CVO (former Governor of New South Wales). Amy's latest piano album is soon to be released. You can hear a sneak peek of her performing one of her compositions, "Locomotive", below 👇

Amy is also a dedicated and experienced music educator, having taught piano and composition at some of Australia's most prestigious universities and schools.

Amy’s unique style and warm personality make her a highly sought-after and much-loved teacher. Growing up in a small rural town with limited access to music resources and having to fight hard to pursue her musical aspirations, Amy is determined to pass on her knowledge, skills and industry experience to other aspiring musicians. Amy can’t wait to be your new piano teacher 😀

Limited Spaces Left

Only 3 enrolment spots left to learn with Amy. Book a free trial lesson today so you don't miss out.

What Equipment Will You Need If You Become a Student With Us?

  • Piano or Keyboard

    A full-size (88 notes) piano or keyboard, with weighted keys and a sustain pedal is ideal. However, if you're a beginner, you might already have a keyboard lying around, and want to try out lessons using this (to see if you're enjoying it) before upgrading. That's fine by us.

  • Internet Connected Device

    An internet-connected device you can access the Virtual Piano Academy website on. If you’re sharing devices at home, you’ll need to be able to login and have access to this device for each of your practice sessions.

  • Device to Record Videos On

    This can be the same device you use to access the Virtual Piano Academy website. We recommend using a smartphone to record your video. A tablet is also fine. A laptop can work too, but is harder to move around and get a good angle from.
