About Me

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
$60 hour
+ First 5 weeks available at $30/half hour

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.

Klara is a great teacher of sound and timing. As a beginner learning the violin I found that she was able to push me at the best pace to keep my learning curve steep.

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!

Very enjoyable lessons with a friendly and positive attitude to teaching. I was very happy with my weekly progression and would recommend Klara to anyone!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Klara for piano lessons.
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.

Thank you for the lessons!

I've been playing violin for over 12 years before I found Klara as a teacher in 2014. At that time I was frustrated at the gap in knowledge between my theoretical knowledge and practical skills. So when I first met Klara, we identified my weaknesses/strengths and what my own personal goals in continuing to play violin. From that initial discussion, we stripped everything back and started with developing strong foundations to build my theoretical knowledge which helped improve my practical skills immensely. Klara's lessons are refreshingly energetic, with a touch of discipline that includes small challenges she sets up for me to complete each week!

Klara is a wonderful piano teacher and has been teaching Alex for the past 2 years. Alex has made huge progress and developed a great rapport with Klara. She makes the lessons fun and is very patient. Alex looks forward to it each and every Monday. As a parent I’m grateful that Klara has managed to engage Alex in an activity that he thoroughly enjoys.

Klara is an amazing teacher! She is very approachable, friendly and professional. She is also very inspiring and motivational.
Damian O Keefe (14 Nov 2015)
As an older student who had never had lessons, I was very nervous about having singing lessons, thinking that if I hadn't learned to sing by now I'd probably never learn. I knew that I'd developed some embarrassing bad habits and, having very little knowledge of music, I could be a teacher's worst nightmare.

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.
Christopher Pound (14 Nov 2015)
On recently resuming my piano playing after an absence of 35 years, I decided that, if I wanted to progress, I should find myself a teacher who could provide inspiration, enthusiastic encouragement, guidance, and just a touch of discipline. Klara has exceeded my expectations and I am now confidently progressing towards my goals of competent piano skills and musical interpretation.

I decided to take up the violin in my late twenties and was keen to learn Irish music. Klara has been excellent teaching me from a complete beginner while incorporating lots of Irish music which I love. Lessons are always fun while still getting professional instruction on technique, creativity, and performance. Klara is warm, friendly and has a great ability to understand how people learn. I have no doubt that she is great with people of all ages and abilities.
