About

I teach and play piano in the Scenic Rim, Queensland Australia, and blog about my little life in this beautiful part of the world.

Posts might be about my student’s horse, the kangaroos, or my melodica. This instrument sounds a bit like an accordion, and I love playing it and writing about that!

Elsewhere, I work in television commercials, so there are posts about that and the talent agent which has represented me since 2013, Agency 888.

I have lived in several countries and wrote a book, but the main part of my working life was in financial news in London. It’s nice to finally settle in the Australian countryside to become “the lady who teaches piano in Kooralbyn”.

Welcome to my blog.

      Yes, Queensland really is the beautiful country. Can’t help but feel lucky being here. Thanks for your good wishes Kim, continue blogging your beautiful photography.

    Dear Joanna, Thank you for sharing your life journey and it’s inspiring to see that it’s never too late to accomplish anything. I’m in my mid 20s. I played piano since I was 7 and got my AMEB grade 8 when I was 15. I love music, but I didn’t pursue it as my career. I have been studying and working in scientific research but recently going through a change and studying postgrad diploma to become a secondary science teacher. Earlier this year an ex-colleague offered for me to teach her 7 years old and 12 years old piano and just like you said, it has been very rewarding watching them improve just over the course of a few months! I am still not confident enough about music pedagogies and whether I am good enough to be accepting more students. It would be good if I could learn from your experiences! Thanks for reading my long introduction!

      Hi Ruby, being in your mid-20s you have plenty of opportunities to find your calling 🙂 You may end up doing several things well, or change directions a few times in the course of a lifetime. Sound like you are interested in working with students whether in a science or music capacity. It’s great that you have options.

      It looks like you are based in Brisbane. Perhaps we could meet over coffee one day 🙂
