Hey I’m Klara, my teaching location is Clifton Hill and I am looking to take on more private students. I have completed a Bachelor of Music degree, majoring in contemporary vocals, and I have 7 years teaching experience with all ages. I teach violin, piano, and singing.
At present I teach a diverse amount of students and ages, ranging from 5 to 50+! My teaching style focuses on the importance of technique. For piano and violin, a little more attention on classical form. Also, specialising in The Suzuki Method for Violin. While vocal lessons are more contemporary based. However, I am very flexible and am also happy to work on any pieces of your choice, which can range from all sorts of styles and genres!
Don't have a violin? That's ok, because I have one you are able to use for your first lesson to give it a try!
Both adult learners and children are welcome.
Lessons are held on a regular, weekly basis.
No drive outs, only at the designated location in Clifton Hill.
$35 half hour or
+ First 5 weeks available at $30/half hour

Klara has been involved with music from an early age, having learnt the violin at age 7. Klara has studied the Suzuki method for violin, AMEB for violin and music theory, and began her teaching career in 2008. Also in 2008, Klara joined the Wollongong Youth Orchestra and toured Perth, France and Germany performing at central Paris, The Madeleine Church, as well as The Lorraine Theatre in Nancy, France.
Klara studied violin with Scott Taggart and composition/theory/piano with John Spence. During this time she began composing and singing her own songs and in 2012, moved to Melbourne to pursue a Bachelor of Music, majoring in vocals. She has worked with singing teachers Karen Cummings, Diana Clark and Nilusha Dassenaike.

Thank you for your review.
Klara's teaching style is a well balanced mix of technique, theory and musicianship. Her lessons cover tools and techniques to help with your performance while also covering the theory that will help you understand the "why" behind it.
Vocal exercises and warmups made me mindful of how important taking care of my voice is, while I found the theory crossed over into my guitar playing.
I recommend her for anyone who has always wanted to learn but never did. Now is a great time to start, you're in good hands with Klara!
Klara combines both a formal and informal approach adapted to the level of the student. My daughter enjoys attending weekly sessions and has already progressed.
Her knowledge and experience is outstanding making the learning environment enjoyable and motivating.
Thank you for the lessons!
Klara has been very non-judgemental, supportive and encouraging, but at the same time has challenged me to work harder and improve. The lessons are one of the highlights of my week. Klara has taught me an extraordinary number of exercises and techniques, and every week there is something new. In the past three months of having weekly lessons I know I have gained confidence and control, and extended my singing range, something that my friends and bandmates have all commented upon.
