“Piano lessons to help your child develop a life-long love of music.”
Rebecca Stewart teaches piano lessons at her studio in the Bega Valley, NSW, 2550. She also offers online piano lessons via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime.
Rebecca finds creative ways to deliver her online teaching in a way that maximises the strengths of Skype and side-steps the limitations. She flexibly supports the lessons with backing tracks, videos, chat streams and email to deliver a program that suits the individual and family circumstances. Her planning and mastery of the technology means that the online lessons focus on the student, the music and Rebecca's natural enthusiasm and connection just like in her face to face lessons. – Robyn, mum of 7yo and 10yo
“Thank you so much for giving our children a wonderful start on what we hope will be a lifelong love of making and playing music. Your enthusiasm, passion and dedication for music and teaching shone through in all of your lessons.” – Jemma and Dan, parents of 8yo and 5yo.

Fee Structure and Policies
The lesson fee is $32 per 30 minutes. Lessons will be charged by the term. New students will be billed on the day the application form is received. Continuing students will be billed for the subsequent term on their last lesson of the current term. Payment is by the term, and is requested within seven days of billing. A late fee of $32 will be charged if payment is not received within seven days. Payments later than 21 days will result in discontinuation. This information was last updated on January 10, 2019.
Through the Creative Kids program of the NSW government, parents can apply for a voucher with a value of up to $100 per calendar year for each student aged 4.5 to 18 years old enrolled in school (including children who are registered for home education.) The voucher may be used towards tuition costs for music lessons with Rebecca Stewart, a registered activity provider with Creative Kids. The voucher can be used at any time during the calendar year it was issued.
Parents can plan to spend around $50 per year on books and materials which the teacher will ask you to buy from a store or online. Please note, photocopied materials are not permitted due to copyright.
There are no reimbursements for lessons missed by a student. Any discussion regarding rescheduling a lesson will be at the teacher's discretion.
A make-up lesson time will be offered by the teacher for a lesson missed due to teacher illness. If the teacher is unable to fulfil the required number of lessons in a term, tuition charges may be adjusted.
Please give three weeks written notice in the case of lesson discontinuation.
In her online piano studio, Rebecca Stewart is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
