About Christine's Teaching Studio

WELCOME TO MY STUDIO
in Canberra, Australia

WHAT TO EXPECT
All tastes, abilities and age-groups are catered for in a relaxed, friendly, fun and stimulating atmosphere. You can study classical and modern music on piano and/or digital piano, and will have the rare opportunity to experience earlier periods of music on harpsichord and fortepiano. To further tailor your lessons to your personal needs, I have state-of-the-art computer technology enabling me to write music scores on the spot especially for you. If you wish to sit for optional Piano and Theory Exams you will be thoroughly prepared at every level, knowing that all my students enjoy a consistent record of excellent achievement.

MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
As a seasoned international performer and recording artist with some 30 years of teaching experience at all levels, I am profoundly aware that whatever a person’s goals and abilities, getting the best tuition from as early a stage as possible lays the foundation for a lifetime of musical fulfilment.
My aim is to assist everyone to enjoyably achieve their personal best, in an atmosphere of encouragement, patience and empathy.
My emphasis is placed first and foremost on the individual ambitions, musical preferences, age and specific needs of all my pupils.
Examples of personalised lessons include those designed for:
      ✬ Children and adults pursuing music for leisure,  focussing on styles of music they like most
✬ Exam candidates (Preliminary to Diploma level)
✬ Advanced players seeking an intensive programme
 ✬ Individuals with special interests (e.g. early music and instruments, digital piano)
✬ Adult beginners / those returning to piano after a break
 Teachers aiming to improve and expand their own teaching skills
✬ Those seeking specific help with, for example: style and interpretation, technique, posture, correction of bad habits…
Make an appointment to discuss your personal programme with me.

FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION
Because it's important to get off to a good start, I offer a free, informal, obligation-free first consultation.  Come and meet me, see my studio, ask all the questions you want… This way, you can feel comfortable with your choices, I can assess your needs, advise you on book/piano purchases etc., and you will know exactly what to expect at your first lesson.

GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE
