There is much evidence about the beneficial effects of playing an instrument to improve the brain's capacity for learning all sorts of things besides music. In a nutshell, It's very good for us!
The initial and most important gain in learning how to play an instrument however comes from the sheer pleasure of discovering and making music.
My aim is for students to enjoy the piano and to develop the skills and confidence necessary to discover music independently.
There is the opportunity for students to try a range of music styles, to learn for a specific purpose, for pleasure, or to sit exams through the Australian Music Examinations Board (see courses below).
Students of all ages are welcome, from 5 to 105!
Students may receive instruction for the following AMEB (Australian Music Examinations Board) exams:
P Plate Piano
Piano for Leisure
Theory of Music
NB. The AMEB - practical examinations in West Wyalong are held around July/August every year (see details in 'Term Dates').
