What Our Families say
When I get home, I tell my Mum that I wish I was still at piano.
Charlie, Student, 6 years old
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.

Brenda is a awesome teacher who helps me set goals, achieve goals while having fun doing that. I really enjoy going to piano lessons. Brenda makes it fun but she also challenges me. She also does group days where we come together to play for each other and play piano games. Brenda makes learning the piano fun and enjoyable.
Olivia, Student, 10 Years Old
Brenda is very nice and lots of fun. In group lessons Brenda lets you play piano games and I make new friends that also play the piano. I have learnt a lot and love playing the piano now.
Joel, Student, 7 Years Old
Brenda was my Master Class teacher at AIM. She is a fine piano teacher with great technique, musicality and sight reading skill, but at the same time she also has a high sense of humour. She was very inspiring and the lessons were never boring. I have become a piano teacher now and I have been also teaching my own daughter who is now 10 y.o. However, my daughter also has had a few masterclass lessons with Brenda at the events of piano competitions and exams, which was very helpful. Due to the high standard of her teaching method and professionalism, I will not hesitate to recommend anybody to learn piano with her.

Ms Jones is an absolutely fabulous piano teacher. She is genuinely enthusiastic in her approach to teaching the piano, has a superb rapport with kids, is always clear in her expectations with the main focus of learning being the enjoyment of music. I would recommend Ms Jones as a piano teacher (and have done so) without hesitation.
Maria, Parent, Manly
Brenda has taught piano to my daughter from Kindergarten and she has been absolutely wonderful. My daughter adores her, has learned so much and most important of all, looks forward to her lessons and loves playing the piano. I have sat in on some lessons and can attest to Brenda’s dedication, endless patience and genuine rapport with her pupils. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Anne, Parent, Terry Hills
Ms. Jones has been my teacher for 4 years and puts a lot of effort into her teaching. Ms Jones does what she thinks is best for the student, choosing our next pieces with us specifically, helping us with our faults, is always understanding and never forgets to reward us with a sticker at the end of each lesson. I would definitely recommend Ms Jones for anyone who wants a piano teacher with flare. The thing I’ve especially enjoyed about all Ms Jones’ lessons is that she is always fun.
