Having had experience in Australian Symphony Orchestras and ensembles, Peter has the passion and expertise to take you as far as you want to go

About Peter
I began piano lessons at four years of age, and was blessed to have an amazing piano teacher, who taught me for 14 years. She gave me a passion to teach others and impart to them a love for music. I have carried on that calling and taught hundreds of adults and children over the last 30 years. I am very thorough in my method and customize each lesson around the goals and dreams of each student. I incorporate theory, ear training and technical into all my lessons, regardless of the style of music they are learning. This gives my students an all-round musical education and appreciation for this wonderful gift they have in their hands.

I have experience in the professional music world as a pianist and french horn player, performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Sydney Sinfonia, Sydney Philharmo
nic Orchestra and Choir, as well as productions of "Cats", "Phantom of the Opera", Sesame Street, and touring all over Australia, U.S.A. and Israel. I have also been a part of the worship teams at Hillsong Church and C3 Church Australia.

I studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and also received my Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in French Horn (Teaching) and Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in Piano (Performance). So my experience not only comes from an inspiring teacher, but also from hundreds of performances on stages across the world working with the finest of musicians, singers, conductors and worship leaders.

I love music, and more so, love imparting it to others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students come away from their lessons inspired and excited about their ability to accomplish their dreams. Whether it is to play 'Phantom of the Opera' or an Adele song, Debussy's Claire De Lune or Jingle Bells, I show them how to do it and help them get there. I am very thorough, taking no short cuts, but making it fun to learn an instrument. You will be amazed at what you are playing in three to six months!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Rock, Contemporary Christian

My son has studied french horn with Peter for 2 years now, and he looks forward to lessons every week. Under his guidance I've watched my teenager excel as a musician, and I've grown to admire Peter's teaching methods. We drive halfway across town to get to there ... because HE'S WORTH IT. It's true that Peter listens to his student's goals. He has literally tailored the lessons around my sons auditions while simultaneously giving him the necessary building blocks to continue growing musically.

Percussion is my primary instrument. I have taught many students on bell kits and a practice pad, but if you have more percussion instruments that is cool. Even auxiliary percussion instruments? Want to talk about proper triangle technique or how to get a great shaker beat or sound? I can help you.

About Michael
No need to be nervous before my lessons. I have taught lessons to ages 6 to students in their 70's! My lessons have a comfortable atmosphere where students can be okay learning with mistakes; through trial and error. I always keep a light mood with quick bits of humor. I teach in a relaxing way, but at the same time you may expect to leave with new musical knowledge every lesson. I enjoy showing the connections between music and other areas of study and life. I always finds ways to work a student's personal interests into lessons. I always strive to help students learn how to practice in an efficient and organized way.

I am a published composer and active performer/teacher/conductor with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and a Master's Degree in Conducting!

Mike was very knowledgable and friendly! He was very encouraging and helped me overcome my doubts. If you're on the fence about taking lessons from him, definitely do it - you won't regret it!

I offer a long list of percussion instrument instruction. Some of those include, djembe, conga, bongos, cajon, darbuka, doumbek, frame drums, tar, pandeiro, riq, snare drum, drum set. Additionally, I I offer lessons on handheld/auxiliary instruments such as, maracas, castanets, shakers, tambourine and more.

About Larry
Hello, I have been teaching drum set and hand percussion lessons for over 25 years. I use practical and user friendly methods aimed at getting the best results. My lessons are tailored specifically to each students needs.

Since 2008, I have been teaching online. I have taught students from various states in the U.S., central Europe and beyond. On average I teach 16-20 lessons a week.

Besides instruction on drum set and hand percussion, I am also active in recording work on a global scale. I have film and TV credits in the hundreds. My original compositions can be heard on everything from Animal Planet to Yukon Men. In my opinion the best teachers are the ones who actually regularly play the instruments they teach.

I am an educated musician with tenures at Berklee College of Music and the LA Music Academy. I have studied under
some of the top teacher/players in the world.

11+ Music Experience
Multi-Instrumentalist
3+ Years of Teaching

I wont teach a student that doesn't want to learn. Forcing anyone to learn, just makes them not want to be involved and can push them from music completely. I know from personal experience.

I'm a practical teacher, keeping classics to a minimum. I teach the fundamentals of music, including Theory, and show students how it can be applied practically through music they enjoy. After the basics are covered, my teaching style becomes a mixture of, what the student wants to learn and what the student needs to learn, often a mixture of both. This keeps the student engaged playing something they enjoy and simultaneously learning through that piece.

I am preparing your student to successfully and intelligently play alongside others in a contemporary setting, not perform a complex concerto in a music hall.

About Michael
I am a Pianist, Guitarist, Bassist, and Percussionist.
I also play a little triangle on the side :)

I have been in music for about 11+ years and have been teaching for 3 years now.

Classical music was never really my thing, but I have studied theory at a college level. I am ready to adapt to the learning interest of my student to keep them engaged and encouraged. I had at one point totally quite music, because I was forced to take lessons. I later went to rediscover music on my own and to learn many instruments. I know what it's like to be discouraged and I know how to keep things interesting and fun.

In my lessons you will learn.....and laugh. I can teach much of what you need to play in any contemporary setting across a wide variety of instruments. You can tell me what you want to learn or let me handle the course of s
tudy.

Students will learn basics and reading notation. We will work with multiple styles and genres. We can also work on original composing. We can focus on one percussion instrument (Drum set, snare drum, keyboard percussion, etc.) or multiple percussion instruments.

About Jamie
I teach and perform on multiple instruments and as many different styles as possible. I have taught many different age groups and levels for 5 years. I believe music should be fun above all else.
