“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.
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.

Tuition fees are based on enrolment, not attendance. Your tuition fees book your place for particular dates as listed on your invoice. There are no reimbursements for lessons missed by a student. Students with face-to-face lessons have the option of attending an online lesson during their scheduled lesson time in the case of illness.
Please expect that lessons will not be rescheduled except for teacher illness. Any discussion involving rescheduling a lesson will be at Rebecca’s discretion.
In the case of student discontinuation, no refunds will be given.
Parents may be asked to order additional books from a store or online. For beginner to intermediate students, please budget for $50 per year. For advanced students doing higher level piano exams (AMEB Grade 5 and above), please budget for $100 per year.
Access to studio-licensed music, including Supersonics app content and related printed materials, is no additional charge. Please note, photocopied materials without a studio license are not permitted due to copyright.
