Tess started playing classical piano at age 5 and completed her Grade 8 piano while still in her teens. She is currently preparing for her Certificate of Performance. Tess picked up flute as a second instrument in 2012 to join bands and orchestras at high school, leading to an interest in composition which she has pursued seriously since. Tess enjoys nothing better than listening to her Queen playlist or watching a good movie with friends.
Sasha is a young composer and performer, having learnt piano since the age of 6. After being classically trained, he started exploring the world of jazz and rock when he formed a band with his high school friends. He completed Music 2 and Music extension in his HSC, going on to receive his AMus one year later. His experiences playing trumpet and guitar in many different ensembles has enriched his understanding of the piano and music in general.
Adeline began piano at age 6 and started teaching at 15. Growing up in a family of classically trained musicians, her fondest memories were of her father singing excerpts from Puccini’s operas and attending concerts conducted by her uncle. Today, she hopes to transmit those same feelings of joy and elation to her students, creating a platform for them to freely express who they are as individuals. In her spare time, you can probably find her being bitten by mosquitoes whilst stargazing.
Mirko is a professional musician and educator, specialising in contemporary music, jazz and latin styles. He has vast performance experience and continues to perform live with his two bands and as a session musician. Mirko uses music as a way to artistically express or reinterpret the world around him every day. He finds passing on his knowledge to students to be an invaluable teaching-learning process that never stops.
Kailesh is a composer, pianist and teacher, deeply passionate about all areas of music. He first trained extensively in classical piano and has since become a keen improviser and lover of jazz and contemporary music. He also composes film music, having written for live theatre as well as several short films - his taste in music is varied and all-encompassing. He maintains a strong interest in politics, science-fiction, and the humanities in general.
Julie is a bubbly multi-instrumentalist and singer, who has always thrived in creative environments. After studying the violin until she was 13, she took to the piano with a longing to understand the mechanics of harmony, and with the help of her teacher she began writing songs.
She loves jewellery-making, painting, dancing, and jamming with her hip muso friends. She is at her happiest when swimming in the ocean or patting a dog.
Soowon grew up constantly surrounded by music, under the influence of her grandfather who loved classical music and her aunt who was a pianist. Soowon mostly performs classical music, but loves to listen to jazz. Her favorite jazz musician is Stan Getz. Soowon’s mother had always thought of her as a bouncing rugby ball because no one knew what she was going to do next and she always thought differently to others!
Alex is a dedicated musician who has studied classical piano for the last 18 years, during school and at the University of Sydney. When he’s not snapping the strings of his grandmother’s baby grand playing Rachmaninoff far too loudly, he can be found at a mates place jamming to some Bruce Springsteen, or making a mess in the kitchen trying to recreate his Nonna’s Spaghetti Bolognese.
Before returning to Australia in 2019 to study Piano Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Victor lived for many years in the misty Pacific Northwest of the United States. While deeply involved in the classical music tradition, he strongly believes in fostering a creative and vibrant contemporary music scene. When not practicing piano, you can find him at the local park with his dog, Stuff, or settled into the couch to enjoy a good movie.

Prior teachers just weren’t engaging with me. As soon as I started to work with Josh my attitude changed completely.
works a treat!
Who would have thought that kid’s piano lessons could be so much fun?!
The teacher's priority is playing music and specifically, the music that the student is listening to.
Play Music taught my daughter to play tunes that she knew and liked and it made a huge difference.
Play Music has made learning piano as an adult a breeze.
Roslyn's manner is perfect for older students and we have been able to work together to find exactly what learning style works for me - no boring bits here!!
The convenience of lessons in
my own home is a bonus.
I would definitely recommend Play Music to anyone looking to learn the piano.
