IMPORTANT NOTICE: Change to Ownerships

2019-01-30T18:09:33+11:0030 January 2019|

We need to announce that Izumi Nakase, who has been teaching with us for last 3 years, will take over the ownership of this studio from me this year.


I started my career as a piano teacher in Melbourne in 2008 and set up the studio in Cheltenham in 2011. I started this studio with small mount of students, which has kept growing till now.


A lot of students took AMEB examinations and two of them passed Practical Piano Grade 8 Examinations and Theory Grade 3 last year. I am very proud of everyone, who took examinations and who didn’t take any examination.


I met hundreds of beautiful students through the studio and all of them were so special to me. I also luckily had great teachers throughout my management.


Even though I and my husband really loves living in Melbourne, we decided to move back to our country, Japan to spend more time with our parents. This is why we gave up the ownership of the studio.


Izumi was considering that it was too pity to close the studio and made a huge commitment to take over the studio from me. I appreciate her decision and commitment.


I will be in Melbourne until the term 1 finishes, so I am going to help Izumi with management during the term 1.


I am quite sure that she will grow the studio more.

Music Concert with Music Lovers

2020-04-10T17:11:57+10:0008 August 2018|

We successfully had “Music Concert With Music Lovers” on Sunday July 29, 2018 at Kingston Arts Centre, Theatre.


We had a good start for the day! The venue was opened on time and the stuff for the day was helpful and reliable. When the concert finished he came to me and told that the concert was very nice!


We changed the title to “Music Concert With Music Lovers” from “Music Concert for Adult Performers” as we ended up with gathering performers from different age groups, playing different instruments and in different genres, but what they had in common was that they love music!


On the day we had; Violin, Cello, Classic Guitar, Saxophone, Choir, Solo singer, Piano solo and Ballet.

All performers prepared their pieces very well for the concert and performed in front of people with confidence. I do appreciate much for their commitment on this concert.


We had nearly 100 people including performers and our teachers.


Well done for Everyone!!


The Cookies on the photo above were given to the accompanist and members of the Choir as gifts. Very nice flower bouquets were also given to main performers.

Seiko Grant has started teaching the piano at our studio in term 1, 2018.

Seiko was teaching the piano in Japan after her graduating from her University and started a different career, however after moving to Melbourne she missed music so much and realised music was so important for her life.
