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 PostGrad Diploma in Piano Performance from the Australian National University and an Master of Arts in 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. My students also performed in regular concerts at Steinway Hall, Klavier Haus Recital Hall and The Turtle Bay School of Music.

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 and age appropriate.

I also arrange regular student concerts and performance classes to encourage students, build confidence and help with performance anxiety.
