ilze Achjian (nee Muzikants)
Accredited Piano / Keyboard and Music Theory teacher
MTA, A.Mus.A., Cert.MusT., Dip.MusT. (USQ)
Over 20 years of experience teaching all ages and levels of students – either for leisure or formal examinations (such as AMEB).
From the age of 4 years, was fortunate to commence piano lessons with a Latvian Concert pianist. Since then, have performed at solo concerts, played the Latvian kokle, accompanied soloists and choirs, Christmas carol concerts for patients, memorial services (organ), studied Music Craft at USQ, taught school group keyboard, play Baroque recorder, member of the Early Music Society and Recorder Society, and enjoy playing the cello.
Tuition is available in my studio at Marrickville – alternate arrangements can made for local students.
look forward to hearing from you...
