My name is Jess. I am a piano, violin and voice specialist, with a background in classical, jazz music genres, composition and education. I am a pedagogy fiend and am grateful to be at the tail end of my Masters of Teaching from the University of Melbourne. My Masters degree will finish 10 years after I graduated with Honours at Te Kōkī, the New Zealand School of Music in Aotearoa.
With my students, each student is unique so our one on one lessons are tailored to suit the wants and needs of the student. Group classes cater to this as much as possible, but follow the themes of the group, which includes differentiation, but different teaching techniques to encourage peer learning and inter and intra group success (healthy competition/commitment).
I am available for:
- private lessons (instrumental)
- video lessons (instrumental)
- group classes (instrumental and early years music and movement)
- masterclasses (educators and teachers)
- in-session music classes for kindergartens/long day care/play groups etc.
- commissioned works for individual or group/class use.
I believe that exposure to and engagement in music education is a right to all walks of life.
