Anne Hilberts BMusEd, AMusA, MMTA.
Anne is a fully qualified music teacher,
specializing in teaching piano, keyboard, composition, theory, musicianship,
music craft and aural skills, with over 25 years experience.
She completed her music degree in 1989, having gained a wealth of knowledge about both music and pedagogy. During this time at Newcastle Conservatorium, she majored in piano with the late Dr David Jones, and continued further piano studies with him after graduation. Studying performance with the renowned pianist David Jones was a real highlight, and means that she can trace her teaching line back through Gordon Watson to both Egon Petri and Busoni, who was a colleague and friend of the famous pianist, Franz Liszt. Over the last several years, Anne has participated in masterclasses with Gerard Willems, Philip Shovk, Clemens Leschke, Danielle Salamon, Richard Morphew, James Muir, Gian-Franco & Natalia Ricci, Catriona Stafford, Elizabeth Jacobs, and Gilbert de Greeve.
Having herself learnt excellent piano technique from a master of such technique, she loves to impart this to students in their piano lessons, inspiring them with confidence through their own musical development and personal achievements.
