    I have only had one lesson with Mary and I already feel confident in my beginner status. Mary is patient, encouraging and very supportive. I am looking forward to an ongoing relationship with MusicLife Academy.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We like doing an initial free interview prior to registration. This helps us determine the student's level, the type of method books to assign, and to learn more about what the student's interest is in. It also gives both the student (and their parents if applicable) and teacher a chance to see if they would be a good fit for each other. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Licentiate Degree with Trinity College London, U.K.

How did you get started teaching?

Joanne attained her Associates Degree at the age of 13 and Licentiate in Piano performance from Trinity College London at the age of 15, both with Distinctions. Her main instrument is the piano, but also plays the violin, voice, and organ. 

She has performed and given masterclasses in various countries and is currently an active cantor, lector, and chorale member at St. John Vianney. 

With more than 20 years of experience teaching students from 2-80 years of age, she is dedicated and passionate about creating all-rounded musicians, prepped to enjoy a lifetime of music.
