I am a recent graduate of the highly selective Sydney’s Conservatorium High School, currently undertaking a Bachelor of Music (Piano Performance) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. I offer intense yet enjoyable piano and/or music theory lessons of high standards.

Because every student is unique and different, my goal is to provide personalised and closely-engaged lessons tailored to the needs of each individual student. My classes are structured as intense 60-minute ‘one-on-one’ lessons to ensure maximum improvement. These lessons focus on:
- Developing effective practice methods so that students become mindful and independent,
- Identifying problems and consequently executing clear and effective solutions through a deeper awareness of one’s own technique.

As a result, students in my studio can thrive in a safe, open, and non-restrictive environment in order to reach their utmost musical potential. My students often receive high examination marks in AMEB piano performance attesting to this. I generally work with students in primary and secondary schools.
