A 1987 graduate in piano from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Ruth has attracted private students of many kinds for over thirty years. In addition she has taught secondary, primary and early childhood school music, conducted school instrumental programs, choirs, musical productions and Kindermusik classes throughout Queensland.
Specialising in customised individual music tuition, Ruth likes to work with each student’s personal motivation rather than confining them to a one-size-fits-all learning philosophy.
A piano lesson with Ruth comprises extending piano technique and a small written theory component each week, as well as focussing on piano pieces of particular interest.
A special feature is Ruth’s ability to arrange and notate music the student wishes to play in ‘1-2 page specials’ appropriate to their level.
While Ruth is proud to have achieved a continually high success rate at student preparation for audition and AMEB examinations, her main objective is empowering student success and confidence.
