Diploma Specialist Tuition
Are you an advanced pianist who aspires to gain your AMusA or LMusA Diploma?
If you are looking for an experienced teacher who specialises in helping students gain the Associate or Licentiate diploma, you've come to the right place. I can help you achieve your unique musical goals. My advanced students have a high “Award” success rate over many years, including students who were awarded their AMusA as young as age 12.
Outside of the exam realm, my students have been successful applicants for international tertiary institutions in Europe and the USA, and I have helped many performing musicians gain targeted skills to become more confident performers.
I understand the exclusive needs of elite pianists and can share the knowledge gained from top international musicians with you. My major teachers were John Perry (USA) and Joan Havill (UK), and festival teachers including Robert Levin, Anne Epperson, Arie Vardi, Jerome Lowenthal, and Joseph Silverstein--all legends in the music world.

What our students say
We are fortunate to have Ms Brenda Jones teach our 2 girls the piano. Ms Jones is an amazing piano teacher, full of passion, dedication and patience. She is an extremely accomplished pianist herself and her accomplishments to date underpins her pursuit of excellence in everything she undertakes. Ms Jones is always very well prepared for the lessons, engages the girls in the lesson and tailors the lessons to their individual needs. Both girls have made excellent progress with Ms Jones and our girls absolutely love playing the piano and practising the piano (Ms Jones’ passion for excellence and enjoyment of music is clearly infectious). They love their lessons and the music they are playing. Their repertoire extends from contemporary, jazz, blues and classical music. They also enjoy the regular group piano lessons and the concerts that occur at the Forest Piano Academy which are extremely well organised.
