Jennifer King is a NSW Conservatorium/Sydney University trained graduate (having studied piano with Nancy Salas) & an accredited Music educator. An experienced studio teacher who offers lessons in piano, musicianship, theory & composition, as well as tutoring on any aspect of the HSC (Music 2, Extension and Music 1) Courses & I.B.
Piano & theory options:
My passion for teaching music is grounded in technique and understanding of musical style and structure, while aiming that each student develops a love of music and reaches their full potential so becoming a richer person from studying the art of music-making. Whether students are preparing formal examinations, or beginning pianists (young or adult) it is the joy of music making that underpins my teaching philosophy and methodology. Both AMEB and Trinity Courses are offered for students wishing to prepare for external examinations. I also teach the AMEB & ABRSM theory & musicianship syllabi, all grades (including advanced levels) are available.
HSC & IB senior Coaching:
As a retired Head Teacher of Music, Senior HSC Examiner, and member of the NSW Board of Studies Music Syllabus Committee, I am especially aware of the syllabi requirements. My experiences in HSC preparation mean that I am in high demand with many of the most prestigious private and public school's music departments, assisting them with Trial HSC Performance Examinations, marking of Compositions and Musicology essays. My HSC students consistently nominated for encore (all areas) gaining marks in the top 10% of the state across the 3 courses.
I now offer same support for IB (International Baccalaureate) courses & had similar successes.
Tertiary Entrance Tests & General Knowledge
Preparation of students for Tertiary Music Entrance Test & General knowledge (any instruments) specialing in advanced grades & diplomas.
I also teach composition and musicology and am available for proof reading of tertiary theses, as well as mentoring support in preparation for masters & doctorate degrees.
I have wide experience in many aspects of music education and enrichment, including lecturing in Concert Classes on performance skills, as part of the NSW Conservatorium of Music weekend Open Academy Courses and presenting lectures in the annual HSC Study Workshops; in recent years I have also been involved in the NSW Conservatorium's Summer and Winter Workshops.
Studio Teacher workshops & Eisteddfod adjudication, is another aspect of music education which I especially enjoy. Personalised HSC performance workshops are available for students & teachers these are designed to meet the needs of the individual students & teacher's requests.
