Her formal qualifications are a Bachelor of Music degree; Graduate Diploma of Humanities (Music); and Certificate of Instrumental Teaching (Piano). She also keeps in touch with developments in teaching through reading and periodic professional development seminars and workshops.
Although primarily a classical music practitioner, her broad musical interests and strong commitment to social justice have taken her everywhere from the operatic stage, to street theatre.

She has taught students aged from six to eighty-six years both privately and in community settings, and the methods she uses are influenced by their needs and tastes.
Judy specialises in teaching beginner-intermediate level piano, with a strong emphasis on musical understanding, practice methods, secure technique, & listening skills. She works to foster an interest in composition and encourages those interested to play their own compositions in lessons and in student performances. To complement lessons she also encourages attendance at live concerts and exposure to the widest possible variety of musical styles & genres.
