Welcome to Waves of Music

My name is Irene, I have been teaching for 10 years. All music lessons are taught in my private studio. I teach to suit the individual needs and goals of each student.


This allows the student to progress at their own pace which helps with understanding, learning, musical techniques and confidence.


Quality music lessons are offered to all students young and mature. I offer lessons in Piano, Keyboard, Guitar, Ukulele, Singing and Theory.


Classical, Modern and Contemporary Styles are taught.


Music lessons are offered for leisure, also for exam preparation. I offer  St Cecilia School of Music, AMEB and ANZCA examination boards syllabus.


Performances are also encouraged with an annual concert for students to help gain more confidence and assist with exam preparation.


My studio is based in Bacchus Marsh/Maddingley.


Waves of Music services the local community and surrounding areas.


Waves of Music became established in February 2010.


I have a strong family influence and background of musicians, who were in bands, orchestras and choirs in Europe. I have been teaching for approx 10 years. Music education, study and experience has been a part of my life for 50 years where I have gained my music knowledge and experience However, due to family commitments earlier on, I was unable to devote my time fully to my music.
