Why My Method Works

I cater specifically for adult learning.

You choose the music you want to play.
I’ll make the learning easy and enjoyable.
Are you new to playing the piano or did you used to play?

Sessions in Balmain

You’ll be playing the pieces you want to play from the start. I have a lovely grand piano that will make you sound and feel like a professional. We’ll choose which pieces to start with from your suggestions, with some help from me too. I find there is always a piece of music that’s ideal for your skill level and interest.

Sessions Online

I offer piano lessons by Skype or FaceTime, with some supplementary YouTube videos when needed. You’ll be playing the pieces you want to play from the start. We’ll select these carefully from your suggestions, with some suggestions from me too. I find there is always a piece to meet your skill level. In preparation, I’ll send you any sheets we need prior to our session.

Learning Made Easy

If you’re new to playing the piano, you’ll be surprised how quickly you can learn to play the music you want to play. If you’ve played before, you’ll be surprised that there is an easier way to learn. A new enjoyment comes from ‘playing for fun’ as opposed to ‘practising the piano’. You’ll want to play when you feel like it and when it fits best into your weekly routine.

Perform with confidence

If you believe you’re not a confident performer, this sets the stage for not being able to perform in the way you know you can. You may be referencing a single past event, or not paying attention to the times you have performed confidently. If you’re replaying a past event, this gives it a lot of power, rather than treating each event as a new experience.

Eimer Boyle | Business Owner

I always wanted to be able to play the piano and sing along with the melody, as this is joyful for me! Linda’s approach is fun, playful, practical and meets me at my level of skill. She provides me direction of where to go next to build my capability to play music. I can now see patterns and can chunk the music into a playable form that makes it easy to learn and repeat effortlessly. If you want to reconnect with your love of music, and to make music part of your everyday life, then Linda is the teacher for you.

Jane Davies | Double Doctor

I had always wanted to play the piano and finally had the opportunity to take lessons as an adult having never previously learnt an instrument. I had tried another teacher for a couple of years but found they had difficulty adapting their teaching style for adult learning techniques and used methods of children suited to children. Linda’s approach to teaching is fabulous for adult learners both beginners and experienced musicians returning to music after a time away. She adapts her teaching for your skills. Lessons have always been enjoyable and as challenging as you want them to be on the day. Linda is the reason I have continued pursuing my goal for the last 10 years. Without Linda’s approach I would have stopped lessons a long time ago.

Rhonda Fadden

I started working with Linda on an old dream of mine to play jazz piano. I had leant classical piano via the old AMEB grade system and gave up through boredom. Linda supports a learning experience that is responsive to my background, energies and interests. Her approach is innovative and she is creative about dealing with any blocks, frustrations and old habits that aren’t helpful. I’m now more spontaneous and confident with my playing. I’ve learnt a lot about a better way of learning itself.
