Chanelle performed her first piano concert age 4, proudly announcing her song to the crowd wearing white knee-high socks and a beautiful 80’s mullet haircut. That was the beginning, and since then she has followed her passion for music, living a colourful life as a teacher, song writer, performer and recording artist.
Chanelle studied classical piano through ABRSM and then graduated with a Bachelor degree in contemporary music at Waikato Institute Of Technology where she discovered a love of jazz, blues and pop. She ran her own successful piano teaching studio in Melbourne for 5 years with a roster of 40 students. Alongside private music teaching, Chanelle has released her own original albums, performed on TV shows like The Cafe and What Now, toured NZ and taught music seminars to large groups. In 2013 she won the APRA New Zealand’s Best Children’s Song Award and last year released her debut album for children ‘The Little Green Turtle and Other Songs for Kids!’.
Chanelle has discovered what it takes to be highly effective in empowering her students to practise and will quickly discover what each one needs to achieve great results AND have fun while they’re doing it. Performing is always encouraged and students will have the opportunity to take the stage at regular concerts which are fun events for everyone involved.
