About our lessons 

Piano and Theory lessons Gold Coast and Redlands

We offer creative lessons for piano and theory
in Oxenford on the Gold Coast, Queensland, and Redland Bay in the Redlands.
Lessons are on a lovely baby grand piano, with a digital piano also used for playing with backing tracks, making even beginners sound like super stars!
Parents are welcome to sit in on their children’s lesson, and are encouraged to takes notes to help their child practice at home.
If you would rather drop off your child for their lesson and go and run some errands, this is fine too.

We make learning FUN! 

As well as teaching piano and theory the traditional way, we also use Piano Maestro.  This is an ipad app that is available free for our students, which helps students to sight read music.  The books that we use in the lesson are also on the app, which makes learning lots more fun and gives great incentive trying to beat your previous ranks and scores.
We also have computer/music games to teach note recognition, pitch,
timing and theory.
All our students love learning like this – especially the adults.
We love seeing how excited students are to come to their lessons and that they actually enjoy practicing at home because
it seems like a game rather than a chore.
Students are also taught music theory concepts using fun and engaging games and manipulatives.  This ranges from a complete beginner using small toys to learn where the notes are on the piano, to advanced students using Lego to learn rhythm and grouping of notes and rests.
Our students enjoy learning new theory concepts, and remember these better when they are having lots of fun while learning.

We give our students opportunities to shine!

Students can learn for fun, sit AMEB or St Cecilia practical exams,
and AMEB theory exams.
Learn classical or popular music, or a combination of both.
We specialise in finding the right exam for each student. Exams are available in Classical Piano, Pop and Rock, Christian Rock/Contemporary Christian Music, or TV and movie themes.
Our students love practicing their exam work because it is music they have chosen themselves.
We guide students, but we encourage them to play music they really enjoy.
After only 7 lessons, Zoe came 1st in the Brisbane Piano Festival!
Concerts and competitions are also available, and students are rewarded with trophies when they perform in our studio’s end of year concerts.
Our students feel encouraged and rewarded for all the work they have put in through the year, and this motivates them to work even harder the next year.
 Every student is recognised for what they can do, and is made to feel capable and confident in their musical abilities.
Our students feel recognised and rewarded for all their hard work throughout the year.
