Sophie maintains a traveling piano studio in the St George area of Sydney, teaching at Hurstville Music Centre, Appassionato Music Academy, Arncliffe Public School in addition to teaching piano in students’ homes since 2013.
Currently, Sophie is studying a Bachelor of Music majoring in piano performance and pedagogy (teaching) at the University of New South Wales. She is constantly seeking to improve her own playing, practicing and performance so as to better teach and train others and regularly learning from more experienced teachers and furthering her professional training. You’ll often find her hunting for some new music to learn (or teach), and improvising in her spare time.
In addition to teaching and studying, Sophie performs as an accompanist for AMEB, school and university exams and musicals, as well as directing and playing with her local church’s band.
Sophie believes in a comprehensive and multi-sensory approach to music education and strives to make lessons an exciting part of the week for students as they learn about the music-making process.
