My name is Mrs. Hannah Snelling and I started Sparrow Academy of Performing Arts in early 2017. With 2 diplomas and a degree in music performance, and 10+ years experience in the industry, I have plenty to offer.  My goal and passion is to provide children with the skills and confidence to express themselves through performance. Preschool Music and Movement is one of my favorite classes to teach, Musical Theater for primary school age is a close second. Adult students are also welcome, especially those with little prior music tuition, or those wanting to brush up on their performing skills. A good foundation in music can lead to a world of opportunities. Preschool Music and Movement is one of my favorites.

My main teaching takes place at Mrs. A’s Music School Wednesday – Friday, I have very limited slots available. I also work with a team to run Mini Musos at Majestic on Wilmer St. Wednesdays at 10am.

Sparrow Academy runs a Musical Theater class at Heathcote Valley Community Center on Tuesdays at 4:30pm, and in Term 3 will be looking at running ballet style dance classes for ages 4-8.

Sparrow Academy has partnered with Mrs. A’s Music school to offer under 5’s musical development and Little Sparrow’s Drama Club with the potential for more dance or drama group classes to meet demand.

Teaching Info

My teaching approach is largely interest driven. I believe music should be fun and engaging. Students choose a piece they want to learn and I will adapt it to their level. I like to use the Hal Leonard piano lesson method book series in my teaching to give lessons structure and keep the momentum going. Theory and rhythm practice are part of each lesson, as is playing “by ear”. I like to include theory flash cards and music games and resources from many sources to keep lessons interesting.
