About me

Welcome to Musical Souls – an encouraging, supportive environment where you learn how to unlock and discover your musical ability, and have fun as you learn to play piano from your very first lesson.

I teach from my home-based studio located in Kotara, 15 minutes from Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.

I’m also a student of the SimplyMusic method and know exactly what it’s like to learn piano as an adult.  What I can share with you is, this method had a profound effect on me from my 3rd lesson – that moment when I realised I was in fact musical and had the ability to play – it was a defining moment. So much so that I now teach Simply Music.

I really connected with the playing-based approach to learning piano – and I play for the shear joy it brings me.  I predominantly teach adults from ages 20 and upwards.  I personally love teaching and supporting adults to discover and unleash their inner musician!

You will learn:

Accompaniment (where you play and someone sings the melody)
Blues, Contemporary, Classical, Jazz
Writing lyrics
Duets and much, much more…

We will also teach you how to retain what you learn each week to build your ability and confidence.
