Piano Maestro's With Shelley

Bringing the JOY of Music to Little Minds and Big Hearts!

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” Plato

About Piano Maestro's With Shelley

My name is Shelley and I have been teaching children for the past 22 years – 10 years in South Africa, where I taught Pre-Primary in Schools and 12 years in Australia, where I have run a Music Program for Babies – 5 year olds and Beginner Piano Classes for 6 year olds and older. I am a mum with 2 children, Matthew who is 18 and Tayla who is 16 this year.

I have always loved music and played the piano at school, reaching Grade 7 in Year 12. My passion for teaching and sharing my love for music makes everyday enjoyable! 

I LOVE my job and love bringing the JOY of music to all.

Piano Maestro's With Shelley provides music & piano lessons for babies, toddlers and school kids in Joondalup.

What Parents Say

‘My daughter has been with Teacher Shelley since she was 12 months of age and she is nearly 5 now. In that time I have found Shelley to be very professional in the delivery of her classes. She is also able to be flexible and adapt her lessons to the needs of the children on the day of the class. Shelley’s classes have always been fun, motivational and a good mix of movement and stationery activities. I have seen first hand that they appeal to both girls and boys. Music concepts are taught in a child friendly engaging way. Shelley uses an extensive variety of instruments and different types of music for children to gain understanding of the musical concepts being taught.

As an Early Childhood Teacher myself, I have seen first hand the importance of giving my child these early musical experiences. The musicality my daughter has gained in Teacher Shelley’s classes has definitely assisted her in her reading development at school now. More importantly to me is that my daughter LOVES Teacher Shelley and her music classes. It is the highlight of her week.

I highly recommend Shelley to any parent considering taking their child to a music class. We tried a few different music classes before finding Shelley. Without a doubt Shelley’s was by far the best. She is friendly, easy to deal with, very accommodating with children who need something a little extra and Shelley has an extensive knowledge of music and how to impart that to children. Try it – you won’t regret it’ 😊
