A little bit about Serene ...


Serene began her musical journey at the age of 5 and is now an accredited high school music teacher in NSW. She has held teaching positions at both the International School of Music and Shine Music School; and now teaches privately full-time.

Over the last 8 years, Serene has taught a diverse range of students, which include children from the age of 4 to adulthood and senior. Serene also enjoys teaching group situations, similar to her experiences in high schools. She has played in bands, performed gigs, and accompanied students for the Higher School Certificate (HSC) and Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) examinations.

In 2006, Serene graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Auckland. She has also completed a Masters of Teaching degree in Music at the University of Western Sydney. Serene has attained a Grade 8 level in Piano Practical under the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). She is presently working towards achieving an Associate diploma in Music (AMus).

Teaching is as much about passion as it is about reason. Serene's passion lends itself to developing and reaching each of her student's potential. Serene works hard to accommodate her students' preferred learning styles and supports them to achieving their desired goals.

Serene believes that being a teacher not only entails the impartation of knowledge, but also involves teaching students how to learn. As the saying goes, "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime."
