Hi! I’m Sandi Lowe, Piano Teacher and business owner at Bella Sonata Music Studio located in Cooranbong near Lake Macquarie, NSW. My passion is in helping people of all ages to create beautiful music through vibrant, engaging lessons crafted for the individual.
My teaching career began in 2008 and I have had the privilege of working with over 80 students since then. I am an Associate Member of the NSW Music Teachers’ Association. I have a “Certificate Teacher of Music Australia (CTMusA)” qualification from the AMEB as a result of 2 years of piano pedagogy study. Piano teacher colleagues have invited me to conduct mock exams for their students and I have also presented for the AMEB Perth.
My teaching philosophy begins with the thought that “A much nobler occupation than concertising is teaching. By teaching you can pass on the art of piano playing from generation to generation and continue this art forever.” (Rosina Lhevinne)
I value organisation and having a plan for each student, identifying their strengths and weaknesses and helping them work towards achieving their goals. A repertoire-rich approach towards learning piano gives a sense of satisfaction and competency, while building sight reading and pattern recognition skills.
Students are encouraged to become independent learners, building transferable life skills such as goal setting, problem solving, perseverance and speaking and performing in public. Ultimately, students are equipped to use their music as a form of relaxation and self-expression.
Bella Sonata Music Studio is a vibrant and engaging place for children and adults to learn to play the piano and express themselves through music.
