For the last 4 years my daughter has been learning the piano. She was 6 when she started. It was a rather naive decision on my part but I value music education and that is something I wish to hand on to my children. The lessons are the reality of leaning tangled with hard work, discipline and practice. My daughter has had her days when the TV is preferable. I see in her an enjoyment and satisfaction that drives her curiosity and desire now to play music. Together we have made a commitment to make music a part of our daily routine sand to watch her learn and discover a new song is reward in itself.
One of the reasons I got Eric to learn to play the piano was I thought at the time if he learnt how to play music he would become smarter and more adaptive. After a few lessons I found he had enjoyed learning and playing music. The reason Eric continued to learn and practice was mainly because he wanted to, enjoyed it and kept at it. Eric was also very good in my opinion and learning music. Learning for the same teacher he has been improving every year and gaining great results from AMEB music exams. Thank you to Maurine for teaching Eric for the last 7 years and guiding him in music.
Maurine offers her students a wonderful opportunity to develop excellent technical, practical and theoretical, practical and digital age where screen distractions are ever present, Maurine provides students with skills to develop proficiency in music performance which promotes a balanced education. Maurine has supported my daughter Jamie for the past 8 years and this year she is looking to sit her Grade 5 practical exam which also be recognised in the SACE towards Year 12 Stage 1 credits. Extra practice, ongoing encouragement, clear instruction and an appreciation of how to maintain student’s interest throughout their teenage years are qualities in Maurine’s program which as a parent I hold in high regard.
