My teaching career commenced in South Africa in 1980 which includes: individual piano lessons; theory of music, harmony and counterpoint; and music history and appreciation. I have taught at various schools, music centres and privately. I immigrated to New Zealand in 2001 and I currently live in South Auckland.
My students have achieved success in various external piano examinations: Grades 1-8, including DipABRSM; and theory examinations Grades 1-6.
I regard practical musical study as the most important vehicle to promote and encourage musical appreciation. To achieve this, I emphasize the following: tone production; articulation; shaping; style; technique; and the application of fundamental rudiments of music.
I also promote a teaching environment of professionalism, encouragement and friendliness to make the student feel appreciated and at ease.
