Hello And Welcome to Piano with a Smile!

Are you looking for children's piano lessons?

Have you considered group classes?

My name is Alex and I am an experienced piano teacher and accompanist offering group piano lessons to young beginners in South Brisbane. 

Sociable and fun: Group lessons offer a natural,

child-friendly learning environment 

Have you noticed how group lessons are growing in popularity?

And rightly so. They are a great alternative to private lessons and offer students a fun, sociable learning experience.

Until a few years ago when I first started teaching groups, I'd only taught privately. Now, after comparing the learning outcomes and enjoyment of students in both, I am convinced that for most children, group offers the best experience and opportunities for those starting out on the piano.

Introducing KeyNotes

KeyNotes is an innovative group piano curriculum that teaches keyboard and musicianship skills to young beginners. It is my method of choice. Centred around child-friendly themes and stories, lessons are fast-paced, interactive (in the old sense!) and packed with activities from singing and performing, listening and discussing, to games and composing. 

Students thrive in the collaborative setting and KeyNotes' unique differentiated approach means that children of all abilities are catered for. Nobody gets left behind!

Whatsmore - and this is what I love most about the programme, is that everyone plays as an ensemble right from the beginning (often to awesome backing tracks!). This is the JOY of music and something our students experience at the end of every lesson.
