With over 25 years teaching experience, I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher providing private lessons in piano, flute, harp and music theory from my home studio in the south-west Brisbane suburb of Anstead - neighbouring suburb to Bellbowrie, Moggill, Mt Crosby, Karana Downs, Pullenvale, Pinjarra Hills and Kenmore.


I start piano students from as young as 4 or 5, and flute and harp students from approximately age 8.


Students will learn the basic elements of music and piano technique, how to read music notation and will explore various musical styles from classical to popular, folk to jazz.  I am constantly researching exciting new music to share with my students to keep everyone engaged and enjoying their lessons.


AMEB exam preparation available or simply learn for your own enjoyment and personal development.


Student concerts are held annually in a friendly environment.  These are open to all students to perform, beginners to advanced, and provide a wonderful opportunity for students to experience performing in front of their peers, friends and relatives, and to be inspired by other students' work.


For those interested in learning the harp, harps are available for hire for a limited period from the Harp Society of Queensland.


Please contact me with any queries and to check my availability.


My rates for 2024, including GST


30 minutes - $43
45 minutes - $64.50

Most students will receive weekly lessons of 30 minutes duration during the Queensland state school term.  Longer lessons are necessary for those at intermediate to advanced levels. Additional lessons during school holidays are sometimes available on request.


"The performance session length was perfect for kids and adults (and they got to see a mix of talents).  

We love how you prepared them and stood by them (and stepped in to guide those who had their smudges so they could finish their pieces) and kept things on task.  All the kids had confidence (even the 3 lessons in one!!!)  WOW"

"Thank you so much for yesterday, Sally, it was a wonderful afternoon. All the children were so brave and did so well. I know Amelie also really enjoyed it and came home to do some loud playing up and down the keys with gusto, was very cute....till it wasn't!

Thank you for all your amazing efforts."

"Dear Sally

Thank you for all the piano lessons you have given me.  I think I have come a long way from "Mary Had a Little Lamb" to "Star Wars"!
