J.K.MJulia kourtidis music - private piano tuitionbrisbane
Julia has helped me so much to improve in piano and she has great taste in music. She’s super easy to talk to and challenges you to try things you’re not so good at to get better. Lessons with her are always enjoyable and I’ve learnt so much since I started in 2013. She has encouraged me to create compositions of my own and improvise - something she has amazing talent in.
As an adult who never played an instrument until later in life, I was inspired to give it a try by some of my friends who did the same. I always liked the piano and thought I’d probably be bad at it. When I met Julia, over three years ago, she made everything feel so easy. We instantly clicked. I like her style and approach because she challenges me by finding increasingly difficult pieces and helping me along the way to build up the skills to do them. She always finds lots of options for interesting music that I like. Julia is warm, kind and encouraging, and always manages to keep me engaged and looking forward to our lessons.
Julia is an inspiring teacher. Her teaching style naturally enthuses our son to develop the piano fundamentals he needs to then create the music he loves. She is intuitive in her approach to the student/teacher relationship, sensitively building our son’s capability each week. Julia is a lovely presence to welcome into our home each week, and as a busy family we are very grateful she brings her significant gift of music to our son directly.
Julia is amazing! She brought out skills I had forgotten I had with her patience and encouraging words. She helped me to get past my nervous insecurity without making me feel silly that I wasn’t able to get some of the more simple exercises the first time. Her musical abilities stretch beyond a traditional pianist with an improvisational ear that sets her apart from your average piano tutor. Julia is a delight and a true professional.
I like Julia because she’s nice and clever and always helps me with reading notes (and fun).
Julia has taught me (from scratch) for 18 months now. She really is fabulous with adult learners. Julia smooths the troubled waters of adult over-compensation beautifully; tolerates the most anxious and nerve-wracked playing; and explains the most arcane principles of music in a very simple way. She also has superb musical taste and chooses the most interesting and lyrical pieces for students to learn. My cat also very much likes sitting on her lap during lessons, so recommendations couldn’t come any higher!
Julia is a wonderful teacher with a lovely, calm and encouraging disposition. Lessons are relaxed and full of laughs which are positive and imperative ideals for nurturing musicianship and creating a life long love and appreciation of music in our son.
She’s good, she’s nice and she’s good at picking the right songs to make it fun. She helps me to learn.
Julia is skilled and patient and great at keeping our son interested in learning more. She is also friendly, flexible and reliable, a real pleasure to deal with.
Julia is a very kind and supportive piano teacher. She makes learning piano fun. I have been learning the piano very well, thanks to her.
