Jane has got an extensive set up now to make it really easy to learn remotely
I've been learning with Jane for almost 3 years from a complete beginner to music. Jane has gone at the pace that suits me and makes sure I'm engaged with the piece we're doing. The lessons are fun and relaxed with no pressure, making them approachable even if I've had a busy week. Moving to online lessons since COVID, I can hardly tell the difference between an online lesson to one in person, and Jane has got an extensive set up now to make it really easy to learn remotely.
Jane's eye and ear for quality of touch, position, tone and depth means nothing is lost...despite not being face to face!
Would highly recommend those considering lessons to reach out to Jane. I started as an adult student without any prior experience – Jane’s approach, knowledge and experience has meant a thoroughly enjoyable 3 years (and counting) of progress. Additionally, I find online lessons with Jane are just as good as in the studio – Jane’s eye and ear for quality of touch, position, tone and depth means nothing is lost, and continued growth despite not being face to face!
it was as good as being there in person and I could still learn new pieces
I'm an older student and thoroughly enjoying my lessons with Jane. After a break of over 40 years I returned to piano lessons a few years ago and eventually chose Jane. I've even been inspired to say goodbye to my old piano from student days in the '70's and buy a new piano. Soon after I started with Jane, the Covid lockdown began and I switched to lessons via Skype - everything worked perfectly, the set-up was simple, it was as good as being there in person and I could still learn new pieces. Although...I've really enjoyed playing duets with Jane in person.
Jane is very attentive to details of technique and is very positive and encouraging in suggesting improvements even when I haven't done as much practice as I could! She finds interesting pieces for me to learn over the whole range of music from classical to jazz and always chooses the perfect piece when I'm a bit vague about what I want to try next. I always leave feeling motivated and encouraged.
Jane is very patient and has a deep understanding of the mechanics that underlie effective piano playing
As an adult student, I appreciated Jane's versatility and willingness to adjust lesson content over several years to my taste. Jane is very patient and has a deep understanding of the mechanics that underlie effective piano playing, so I would wholeheartedly recommend her to any potential students who are keen to learn.
The lessons through Skype are equally as helpful and rewarding as those in person
During the lockdown last year I found myself with a lot more time to practise piano, but wasn’t progressing as quickly as I would have liked through YouTube videos alone. Jane offered lessons through Skype, which is extremely helpful as I’m only in Dunedin during university semesters.
Despite doing a lot of the learning through a computer screen, the lessons were still extremely personable, and Jane is a very patient teacher who has advanced my playing further than I thought possible in a year. I’m feeling a lot more confident reading sheet music, and playing pieces I thought it would take me years of practise to attempt.
I highly recommend Jane to anyone in Dunedin, or otherwise, as the lessons through Skype are equally as helpful and rewarding as those in person.
dedicated and skilful teacher
This year has been a very rewarding year with my piano learning, I really enjoyed Jane's lessons, and tackling the challenging pieces with her help. It is truely an honour to have the chance to learn piano from such a dedicated and skilful teacher.
The lessons flow just as well as if they were happening in person
I have been having lessons with Jane via Skype since May 2020. Before then it was 20 years since I had taken piano lessons. As a working mum, I chose Skype lessons because there’s no travel time involved. Having lessons at home has made piano lessons possible for me, when they otherwise wouldn’t have been. I have been really surprised by how much I have enjoyed the lessons and how much progress I have made. Jane’s camera set up is ideal for remote teaching. Jane is able to demonstrate using a camera above her own piano, and seems to have no difficulty critiquing me, by watching me play remotely. The lessons flow just as well as if they were happening in person, and I look forward to them each week.
Jane has a knack for choosing a variety of new music in different styles that I like, and her lessons are genuinely fun – low stress and tailored to what I want to get out of them. At the end of every lesson I know I’ve learned something, and have something specific to work on during my practice. As a result, I’ve been able to feel real progress week by week. What started as a resurrected hobby to pass the time during lockdown has become a really enjoyable part of my week and something I hope to be able to keep up for a long time to come.
skype lessons accommodate me and my timetable better
I hadn't played the piano for 8 years before I decided to start taking lessons again. Jane came as the most highly recommended tutor in the area and after a few trials with some tutors I decided to start lessons with Jane. She is very encouraging and has accepted my skills and abilities as is. She is never frustrated when I have not been able to practice much and is always motivating me to do the best that I can.
When coronavirus and lockdown arrived I was worried that lessons would have to be cancelled but Jane quickly moved online and we have been able to have skype lessons, and not have to miss any lessons. Now that we have returned to a quasi-normal life I still have skype lessons as they accommodate me and my timetable better; something I am extremely grateful for, Jane allowing these lessons to continue online.
Jane is an awesome teacher
I've really improved since getting piano lessons, Jane is an awesome teacher and so worth it.
Online lessons are easy and convenient, and Jane keeps the quality high as she has a great setup.
I've been able to improve massively over a relatively short time
I've been taking lessons with Jane over Skype for about a year now, and my only experience before then was briefly taking music in high-school. With Jane's help I've been able to improve massively over a relatively short time. Her lessons are always well paced and at just the right level of difficulty. No matter what style you're interested in, Jane is happy to accommodate, and being able to take lessons remotely makes it easy to fit them into your schedule. I would definitely recommend Jane to anyone looking to learn the piano regardless of background or experience.
Jane’s tech system is now super high-tech
Jane taught me piano for nearly ten years. During this time, Jane saw me through many music exams, including ABRSM Grade 7 piano and Grade 5 music theory, which I attained with high marks. I always immensely enjoyed my piano lessons — in large part due to Jane. Jane is friendly, supportive, and professional. She brings out the best in her students by encouraging them in their goals, being patient, and calmly helping them to apply corrections. Jane always made my lessons fun, gave me plenty of choice in what I wanted to play, and helped ensure that these pieces reached a polished level. I learnt and improved a lot under Jane’s guidance and gained a love and appreciation for piano and music in general.
Three of the years I learnt from Jane were during the time of the Covid pandemic. During the lockdowns Jane offered lessons via ‘Skype’. Since then, Jane has been committed to upgrading her tech system so students can enjoy lessons ‘online’, ‘in person’, or a mixture of both. Jane’s tech system is now super high-tech (including an overhead camera to demonstrate fingerings and being able to display and draw on sheet music digitally)! While away at University, I did lessons with Jane online during the year. This offered me many advantages, particularly as I did not have to worry about transport. Skype lessons were a great alternative, and I felt I learnt just as much due to Jane’s commitment to providing high-quality online lessons.
I recommend Jane to anyone looking to play the piano. Jane is great with people at all stages of learning the piano, and all ages. She is so kind, friendly, and an excellent teacher.
