Hey there! My name is Bethany and I offer private piano lessons in Narre Warren.
As a teacher, my biggest goal is to pass on my personal love of music and all it encompasses to my students, and to enable them to enjoy playing and learning for themselves for the rest of their lives. I feel called to create a deeper impact in my students’ lives that includes — but also exceeds — learning how to play piano.
I believe that a holistic sense of musicianship (understanding theory, history, performance practice, composition and improvisation, and so much more!) is crucial to a child’s real enjoyment of music, not just completing exams (although they are very useful too!). Music works wonders for their cognitive development, and in my studio, my goal is to give my students a sense of love, belonging, good character building and work ethic, and hopefully many happy memories!
I have over three year’s experience teaching and working with children. I have completed all eight AMEB Piano grades, and also went on to complete the Certificate of Performance. I am currently studying a tertiary music degree, and I plan on pursuing all other degrees and certifications necessary for me to be the best teacher I can for all my students. I hold a current Victorian Working With Children Check and Police Check.
Also, in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent nationwide quarantine, I am, during this period, offering online music lessons for the same price as a face-to-face lessons. Once the quarantine has been lifted, all online lessons will revert to face-to-face lessons.
