Teaching
Philosophy

Epics Music teaching philosophy is simple: to learn and have fun! Music is full of emotion and meaning and is meant to be enjoyed; therefore it seems counterproductive to have lessons that are dreary and boring. We tailor lessons to the students’ strengths, weaknesses and interests. We invest in new material and combine practical exercises with current technology. Our aim is to provide fun and enjoyable lessons while working diligently to achieve specific and measurable goals. Most importantly we aim to create a fun, energetic and supportive learning atmosphere.

Teachers

All teachers have been mentored by Christine and have continued support and training to enable them to provide high quality lessons. The majority of our teachers have complete a Bachelor of Music or Creative Arts. All our teachers are friendly, happy, helpful and most importantly patient teachers!

Preschool Piano Lessons

Having had great experience as a licensed Kindermusik teacher, Christine has now opened up the studio to welcome preschool piano classes! By following the amazing Wunderkey’s program we provide fun and active lessons for children from ages 3 and up. It’s a fun and exciting way to be introduced to music & the piano through games and stories. Each lesson goes for  30 minutes which includes 5 minutes of “week in review” chat, 20 minutes of stories, piano playing and off-the bench music educational games finishing with 5 minutes of “week to come” run down. These lessons offer a great introduction to all aspects of music and rhythm to help children's brain develop and set them up for which ever instrument they choose in the future.

Composition

From senior / VCE / HSC Composition through to University level.

Composition requires a good understanding of music theory, a general knowledge base of music history, confident performance skills, the ability to improvise, buckets of creativity, preferably experience with more than one instrument and a passion for creating music! Luckily through Epics Music you can learn all of these traits of a composer and more. You will learn many different styles and techniques of composition, the use of abstract inspiration and the “musical side” of mathematical equations.

Composition is much broader than putting a few notes together and can be taught at many different levels. If you wish to receive lessons in composition, lessons can start from basic solo instrument tonal pieces and can continue up to tertiary level symphonies.

A message from Christine:

Composition is my passion and what I love and live to do, so lessons will be both extensive and exciting. Because of the amount of skills that need to be taught for composition these lessons are only available for a minimum of 1 hour per week.

Composition is very fulfilling no matter what level it is for. If you are even slightly curious about learning composition I strongly urge you to contact me so we can get started on creating another great Debussy, Xenaxis, Stockhausen, Cage or Williams (they’re composers… we’ll cover this in our lesson!)

Music Theory

For high school, university and AMEB theory. From beginners to advanced students.

Theory can sometimes be a forgotten necessity of learning any instrument. It’s great to know what keys to press but you need to know why.

Music theory is required for elective music in high school and above as well as for AMEB grades.

Music theory covers topics such as chordal structures, harmony, notation, instrumentation, structure, musicology and more.
