Local to the areas of Victoria Park, Carlisle, Perth, St James, Lathlain, Belmont, Bentley, Rivervale, South Perth, Kensington, Kewdale, Queens Park, Cannington, Redcliffe, Burswood.

You’ve arrived at Greg Norman’s piano teacher website.

Since 1977, I have taught how to play piano and taught Music Theory.

To answer your questions about learning to play piano or about Music Theory lessons…
Click here to call me Monday to Saturday, before 8:00pm AWST.

I teach:

– absolute beginners (adults, children and teens),
– music students for AMEB/ABRSM piano examinations,
– adults who want to re-learn playing the piano,
– piano lessons simply for personal enjoyment,
– you, with your own unique reason(s) for learning to play.

IT IS ESSENTIAL & EXPECTED that you already have your own piano when taking lessons with me.
Please ONLY CONTACT me for lessons once you have your instrument, ready & set up for practising.

I only provide personalized, individual lessons and only at my Victoria Park address.
I do not teach groups and I do not travel to lessons.

Parents are extremely welcome to sit in during their children’s lessons.

Start at any time of the school year. You can begin right now!

I am able to provide Music Theory over the internet too, if long distance education is preferred.

I am looking forward to speaking with you. Send me an email or call me.

A Couple Of Changes At This Music Blog

Just a short notification about a couple of changes at this music blog.

Music Blog - Changes To HelpYou might have noticed that in this blog’s navigation bar (at top of the page), that I now have a brand new form at which you can leave your personal feedback about the piano lessons you have experienced with me as your teacher.

If you are a past or present student who has bumped into today’s message and stopped to submit a testimonial, then I thank you in advance.

Your contribution is hugely appreciated. 🙂

You may also have picked up, at the top of this blog, that I announce the days that I do not teach i.e. some public holidays and segments of school holidays.

I now also update that in an image with those dates for you.

It should make those dates much more visible and therefore easier to spot when you visit my blog.

You can see that to your right, in this music blog’s side-bar.

I hope that both these new additions make a difference to you.

Music Education and Brain Development

Music education changes the anatomy and function of the brain.

Music Education And The Brain image

There is a great deal of research to support all the benefits in taking up playing a musical instrument for the purpose of brain development in alternative disciplines.

The following are just a few that you might like to explore further:

Music training in childhood fundamentally alters the nervous system such that neural changes persist in adulthood after auditory training has ceased.

Studies have shown that assiduous instrument training from an early age can help the brain to process sounds better, making it easier to stay focused when absorbing other subjects, from literature to tensor calculus.

The cognitive structures developed through music instruction exposed and illuminated more general organizing structures relevant for multiple disciplines.

The combined results of 12 experimental studies indicate a positive relationship between voluntary music study and math achievement.

Multiple studies indicate that early music instruction is linked to significant improvements in students’ spatial reasoning abilities.

The combined results of 30 studies indicate that music instruction is linked to significantly improved reading skills.

Researchers have found a correlation between three or more years of instrumental music training and enhanced auditory discrimination, fine motor skills, vocabulary, and nonverbal reasoning.

Playing a musical instrument significantly enhances the brainstem’s sensitivity to speech sounds. This relates to encoding skills involved with both music and language.

Children with music training had significantly better verbal memory than those without such training, and the longer the training, the better the verbal memory.

Adults who had trained on a Western musical instrument for at least six years before age 12 had significantly better verbal memories, as demonstrated by a word recall list, than those without any musical training.

Those links to research and more can be found at this website link.
