Hi, my name is Joanne and I’m a teacher here at ISM Morphett Vale. I love the ISM method and have had the pleasure of teaching it to students of all ages since 2001. I love watching our students enjoy their music classes week by week, year by year, as they grow into young musicians.
I started learning music myself as a child and sat all of my exams through the AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board) I studied piano, flute, guitar, and violin. I then went on to teach music at primary schools for several years, teaching both privately and in groups.
It’s been an honour to see several of my students go on to become teachers themselves. I joined the ISM family in 2001 and have been there ever since. I particularly love that ISM teaches music as a language and focuses on developing the natural aural and rhythmic skills in children.
My favourite music quote: “Only practice on the days you eat!”
