I draw on a range of teaching methods based on my own experiences as a musician. I like to tailor my approach to the individual student, but as a basic framework I follow the Australian Music Examination Board and ANZCA Musical Examinations grade levels for both their 'Piano For Leasure' and 'Classical Pianoforte' streams. (These are both Australian examination bodies.) 
For voice, I aim to build a strong foundation and understanding of musical theory, sight singing and aural skills in my students, and help them become well rounded musicians. For foundational technical skills I use Anne Peckham's 'The Contemporary Singer' and 'The Greatest Ever Improve Your Singing Book for Contemporary Vocalists' by Linda George and Steve Vertigan, as well as other sight singing excercises and recourses. I make song suggestions to students based around the examination board syllabus levels, but usually allow students to choose their own songs and we work on techniques within them. 
I also enjoy working with students
