Pete Roberts has been teaching piano for more than 20 years and
is a highly skilled, highly trained and passionate teacher offering
piano lessons in Lilyfield and North Sydney.
Skilled in both Modern and Classical piano styles, Pete's expert
guidance allows students to explore their creativity
and develop their piano playing skills efficiently through a structured,
innovative and fun approach to learning the piano.
Whether you are wanting to learn modern piano styles such as jazz,
pop, rock, blues or whether you prefer learning classical piano,
or a mixture of piano styles, Pete's tailored lessons and innovative
teaching videos (see video lessons page) will have you playing your
favourite piano pieces in no time.
All students are welcome from complete beginners through to advanced
pianists. I can help students prepare for AMEB classical examinations,
as well as auditions for University courses in particular advanced
jazz and contemporary courses.
Biography & More Info
In 1998 Pete graduated with distinction from the Sydney Conservatorium
of Music with a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano (majoring in
Jazz Piano), and since then has been working as a musician performing
with many of Australia's best musicians.
Pete undertook an intensive period of classical piano study
at the Sydney School of Piano with master teacher Elizabeth
Green, and can give students expert guidance on how to develop
effortlessness and ease with their piano technique.
Lessons for Children
I welcome young students from the age of 5 and up, and have
had many years experience teaching tailored lessons to children
that give students an excellent grounding in all aspects of
piano including correct piano technique, note reading, ear training,
music theory, improvisation and more. The most important aspect
in teaching piano to children is to keep them engaged and interested
in the lessons, and so I always structure the lessons to suit
the needs and development of the student rather than having
a one-size-fits-all approach.
Lessons for Adults
Most of my adult students have very busy lives and so their
piano lessons often need to be tailored in such a way that they
can continue to develop their piano playing without having to
spend hours and hours each day practising. I have had many years
experience guiding adult students in developing their piano
practise to fit in with all of their other committments, and
in particular I have found that tailored practise videos (see
below) help students develop much quicker, giving them 'hands-on'
guidance with their home practise, particularly when learning
videos for home practise
To help speed up the progress of my students I also offer the
option of tailored lesson videos (see below for an example)
for home practise. The video below is an example of a very slow
basic version of the Beatles song 'Yesterday' I recorded for
a student. You can see more lesson video examples at the video
locations and options
