We teach you how to read and play music in different styles: from Classical, to Pop and everything in between. If you have a particular style in mind, or a certain piece you’d like to play, let us know and we will do our best to help you reach your goals.

About our lessons

About our lessons 

                                Karen’s student Keshav performing at Dreamworld
We offer creative lessons for piano and music theory on the Gold Coast,
and Redland Bay in Queensland.
In the Helensvale and Redland Bay studios, 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!
In the Hope Island studio, lessons are on a high quality upright piano, making lessons less daunting for younger students who find the grand piano quite overwhelming.
Parents are welcome to sit in on their children’s lesson, and are encouraged to take 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! 

We use toys to help children use imagery to learn musical concepts, which makes learning lots of fun!
Ranging from putting characters from a story on the keys to learn the names of the notes, using soft toys to learn piano technique, playing board games to learn theory, using backing tracks on a tablet to learn to play in time, to playing an iPad Ninja game to learn note names, there is bound to be an activity that you or your child just love!

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.
