I am Invercargill born, and proud to be a Southlander. I have five children mostly grownup, three step-children who are adults and four beautiful grandchildren. Family and music are my two most important priorities. I am passionate about seeing people enjoy music as well as becoming excellent musicians.
My musical training started when I was a young child. I learnt recorder, guitar, flute then piano in my early years. I started writing my own music at fourteen, which is something I have continued throughout my life, having recently premiered my own works in Invercargill. As an adult I continued my musical learning by sitting music exams with various musical schools which include Modern, Trinity College and St Cecilia School of Music. My current qualifications include Trinity Grade Eight Piano, St Cecilia School of Music Associate Diploma Performance—Piano , Associate Diploma—Theory, Diploma of Composition and Associate Teachers Diploma. I am currently studying with Massey (BA Mus). Continued learning is a major part of my philosophy as a teacher and I encourage my students to develop a life long love of learning.
I read extensively, enjoy cooking and gardening and spending time with my family. I am happily married and enjoy a busy full life. I have also trained as a Life Coach and enjoy bringing these additional skills of motivation and goal setting to my students.
I have been teaching for about eleven years. My subjects include private tuition in piano (classical, jazz or contemporary), guitar (classical or contemporary), flute, composition, and theory to an advanced level.
My students range in level from beginners to grade eight level at present.
My approach to teaching is that one style does not fit everyone. I endeavour to create individual lesson plans for each student as well as working with their learning style. My students call me Anna and I enjoy great relationships with my clients that often turn into friendships. I am a strong advocate of goal setting in learning music and I work hard to help motivate my students.
