At Red Note Music, we have a team of dedicated piano teachers who make sure that each lesson is tailored to the individual student. Lessons are a mixture of technique, repertoire, and activities/games that ensure a creative and fun atmosphere. Students are encouraged to explore non-tuned and tuned percussion instruments as part of their rhythm and reading skills. Our teachers’ calm and patient approach to our students and their needs ensures a positive experience right from the beginning.
Students are offered the choice of sitting piano exams with AMEB or ANZCA. Our teachers also prepares students for AMEB Music Craft and AMEB and ANZCA theory exams. Please feel free to discuss the different exam options with your teacher or Leonie at any time.
