Pianissimo

Pianissimo is for children at the beginning of their piano journey. Involving 3 to 4 children, this small group cultivates an encouraging and motivating atmosphere for children to set up a strong foundation for developing attention to making beautiful sounds, beautiful posture and most importantly a love of learning.  

In this small group we celebrate each others successes and support one another through difficulties. Drawing upon Suzuki Philosophy parents are supported to set up a home environment that allows for ability to grow naturally in children, rather than being forced!

Parents who are interested in this course will be interested in the learning that is beyond physically playing piano: the social relationships, development of confidence, sensitivity to sounds, expressing our true selves through words and developing joy in progression.

Beyond Piano

Parents interested in working with me will recognise that learning the piano goes beyond the physical act of playing the piano. Learning piano provides the frame in which we can do deep work together.

Seeing a parent and child week after week for "piano lessons" provides me with the unique experience of witnessing your child and how they relate and react to the world. I will be a witness to repeated patterns which can be addressed in lessons to increase your child to express their emotions, gain confidence, assert their thoughts and express more of who they are, so that this can be taken into the rest of their lives. 

Learning piano is a partnership between parent and child providing the opportunity for this partnership and relationship to be strengthened through love, patience and understanding. 

During Piano Lessons we zone in on: listening to the quality of our sound, playing with posture that supports the production of beautiful tone, playing with one another, celebrating success and persevering through the more difficult times.  

As children progress through the repertoire they learn to read and understand music, their technical ability grows which is marked through the Suzuki Graduation process and celebrating by performing at the annual Suzuki Graduation Concert at the Opera House!!! 

Working closely with both parent and child we embark on a long term journey, developing musical tone, expression, perseverance,  social intelligence and fine ability, all the while nurturing a kind and resilient heart.
