About Me

I am a classically trained pianist who holds a Bachelor of Music degree, a Performance and Teacher's Licentiate in Piano from Trinity College of Music, London, a Chamber Music Licentiate in Piano (UNISA), a Graduate Certificate in Piano from the Australian National University and a Master of Arts in Modern European Languages.

I am a Steinway Certified Educational Partner and have over 16 years of experience as a teacher. After completion of my Bachelor of Music studies, I spent two year in Paris, France, studying piano and accompaniment with Denis Pascal & Christophe Maynard at the Conservatoire Nationale de Region (CNR). During this time I also worked as accompanist for the Student Association of the École Normale de Musique de Paris, A. Cortot. After two years in Paris, I moved to Padua, Italy, where I continued my musical studies with Franco Angeleri at the Masiero e Centanin Music Foundation, followed by a month in New York participating in piano and vocal accompaniment Masterclasses at the Juilliard School of Music.  I have taught and performed as a soloist, accompanist and chamber musician in Europe, Australia, the United States and South Africa. 

I taught piano at the Wesley Music Centre  from 2007 to 2012. I  recently returned to Canberra after 2.5 years in New York City, USA. I teach all levels and ages and prepare students for the AMEB, ABRSM and Trinity College of Music Exams as well as for the Australian National Eisteddfod. I also teach music theory ( grade 1 - 8)  for all the above mentioned Music Exams. During my time in New York, I prepared students for the Juilliard School of Music Summer School Program, the NYSSMA (New York State Music Evaluations, level 1-6) as well as the Princeton Piano Competition. 

I am patient, friendly and dedicated. My students have achieved excellent results in a variety of music exams and music festivals. My lessons are tailor-made to the needs of each student.

I also arrange regular student concerts and performance classes to encourage students, build confidence and help with performance anxiety.  Canberra student concerts are held at the Wesley Music Foundation in Forrest, ACT or at my studio in Ainslie.
