Hi, I am Ms Gail a piano teacher who works with kids & adults 6 years to 50+ years. I teach on a beautiful grand piano in my home studio, and I believe that everyone should enjoy what they do, including learning the piano
I enjoy helping students to love learning & want to be their best self. And all my activities are designed to spark student’s curiosity & help them play pieces in the fastest & easiest way possible.
In my role as a piano teacher, I seek to understand and unlock how a student thinks, as well as what motivates them.
When I can understand each student’s needs and desires, we can work together to learn & grow in the direction that sparks their love for learning.
I find that this approach is refreshing for learners of all ages as it’s not the way that we’re taught even in school.

For goal oriented & ambitious students, I would send them for exams & piano competitions.
For shy students, I would work with them to increase their confidence & self-esteem. To get students to love music, I would share with them the stories & histories behind pieces, and the science of how sound works.
In our time together, students would:
- Grow to love the piano
- Participate in Quarterly Zoom recitals
- Participate in external exams, festivals, competitions
- Work towards personalised Learning Challenges & Awards
I look forward to helping you reach your piano goals!
“Gail is a highly engaging and competent music teacher. She is able to reach her student at their level and age. Her bubbly, effervescent personality is infectious and comes across even through ZOOM sessions during the COVID period.
My daughter has enjoyed her classes tremendously since she started with her over a year ago. Unlike many piano students I have known, she has never dreaded her next class but instead is always looking forward to yet another fun and exciting lesson.
Today my daughter is able to play expressively and evidently enjoys making music on the piano. These I feel are some of the true hallmarks of a music teacher of distinction.”
Parent Aileen commented how their kids enjoy performing for the recital by Ms Gail.
“Ms Gail has been teaching piano lessons to my daughters for more than a year now. She is an excellent teacher who connects with her students at deeper level and cater to their individual learning styles.
She makes the class full of fun and both my girls look forward to their weekly class. She has invoked the natural curiosity about music by telling them stories and emotions behind songs.
She has brought the girls closer to the instrument where they practice everyday without anyone reminding them. And that to me only few teachers are capable of doing – bringing students closer to the subject.”
“Ms Gail is a passionate teacher with a lot of patience. She is capable to teach students at all ages.
Myself starts learning piano at 30’s. I found her lesson very inspiring. I do enjoy her teaching.
My two girls also learn from her since 4 yo. She is teaching them to appreciate the beauty of music instead of focusing on exams. I am very glad to see my girls enjoy playing piano and practice daily with little resistance.”
