Q: Do you teach groups?
A: No, I only teach one-on-one lessons but it is something that I am considering in the future
Q: Do you use books in your lessons?
A: Yes, with most students I use the 'Alfred's Series' books. However, it does depend on the student as I tend to tailor my lessons to their needs.
Q: Do you make house calls?
A: No, I only teach from my home studio or in schools. In extreme circumstances, I will offer to make a house call, time & schedule permitting. But that would only be a 'one-off' lesson.
Q: If I (or my child) are sick and can not attend a lesson, can I have a catch-up lesson?
A: Absolutely! As long as I am given notice of the absence, we can organise a catch-up. The lesson time slot is reserved for you. But in the event that you are unable to attend, I can make use of that vacant allocated time. Therefore if I am not given notice, I am unable to reorganise my lessons to accommodate other catch-up lessons, which makes the lesson time unnecessarily wasted.
Q: Are the lessons structured?
A: Yes, the lessons are structured according to the student's needs, with clear goals for the end of the term.
Q: Do you teach Classical piano?
A: No. My training is in Contemporary & Jazz theory.
Q: Do you do AMEB exams?
A: No, I don't do exams.
Q: Do you offer multiple student discounts?
A: No, I do not offer discounts.
Q: Have you had a 'Working With Vulnerable People' check?
A: Yes. It is now required by law. Feel free to ask if you ever wish to see my card.
Q: Do you do performances?
A: Though I have in the past, it is not something I do regularly. I do however, encourage performances and am considering more regular performances for the future.
Q: What age range do you teach?
A: Six years of age (Kindergarten) is the youngest that I will teach. As for the oldest, as long as you remember my name, we're good to go.
