Greetings

Kaya! I'm Tiffany - pianist, composer, educator and Gestalt Therapist.

I have worked professionally as a musician and an educator since 2007. I love working with people of all ages and abilities and I take a creative, relational approach to piano lessons. 
Nobody wants to feel like they will never be good enough. Nobody wants to feel like they are constantly being compared to and outperformed by others. But unfortunately, for a lot of people, that is their experience of music training.
So many people have painful memories – even trauma – surrounding early musical experiences. 

Traditional methods and attitudes have created whole generations of adults who believe they "aren't talented enough" to learn music. Sometimes, all it takes is one off-handed comment.

Nobody wants to feel like they will never be good enough. Nobody wants to feel like they are constantly being compared to and outperformed by others. But unfortunately, for a lot of people, that is their experience of music training. 

I endured the soul-crushing, boring parts of classical music training because I was stubborn. But I paid a price for pushing myself: burnout, performance anxiety, imposter syndrome, shame, and avoidance of the very thing I once loved: playing music.

There is so much more to music-making than just mechanical skill. I knew there had to be another way. I knew that many people miss out on music education because the traditional methods are not supportive, engaging or inclusive enough. 

After completing my music studies at university, I took singing lessons, directed choirs, attended immersive workshops in Alexander technique, dance, free improvisation and yoga. I became an arts writer, learned jazz piano, and composed an album. I studied psychology and trained to become a Gestalt psychotherapist at GTIWA. And as this whirlwind of self-development subsided I took a step back and tried to synthesise everything I'd learned in order to serve others. And that's when I launched Inner Voice Piano

My purpose is to help people deepen their relationship with the piano and with themselves.
To hear me play, check out my reel below. This is a collection of ambient and minimal piano sketches I created over the past two years. Each sketch was totally improvised - a spontaneous, true expression of what I was feeling at the time.

These lessons feel like a space to explore music, be curious and ask questions - but also to hone technique and build solid foundations with clear guidance from a genuine professional.

Tiffany is fantastic at incorporating all aspects of piano playing (technique, expression, theory, etc) and at helping people find their own way of playing rather than just sticking to a strict guideline.

You are very encouraging and I love how you weave the theory into my lesson based on what piece I'm learning. Playing piano has allowed me to introduce more 'flow' and mindfulness into my life.

Tiffany has the knowledge and right attitude to help you reach goals, to grow as an all-round musician and explore what aspects of learning piano/music specifically interest you.

You are deeply knowledgable, empathetic, endlessly patient and a skilled teacher. Our introductory session showed me that you cared about what I wanted to achieve and you were willing to tailor tuition to my goals.

I value your individualized approach, the variety of teaching and learning methods you use, the fact that you welcome and expose your students to different styles of music. I learned a lot in the past couple of years.

Tiffany has taught me so many things. I'm very proud to have been able to make my own arrangements of great jazz pieces under Tiffany's direction. You couldn't find a more patient, sensitive and knowledgable teacher.
