Michelle O.

Michelle O.
BA (Mus) W. Aust., LTCL, ALCM
Principal; Piano, Violin & Piano Accompanist

A sincere and diligent teacher, whose conscientiousness and genuine interest in music is a constant source of inspiration for her peers and students.

Michelle has attended piano lessons since the age of three and violin lessons since she was eight. She was awarded a Distinction in the Associate Music Performance Diploma when she was 12, and has achieved a Distinction in the Licentiate Diploma examinations, LTCL at age 15. In the same year, she auditioned and secured a place to study at Wells Cathedral School, a specialist music school in the UK.

During her brief stay in Wells, Somerset, England, Michelle discovered her passion for Baroque and Classical music, the two main periods in music history which formed a large part of her repertoire under the guidance of her piano mentor, Graeme Gilling. Hence, this shaped Michelle’s viewpoint of imparting genuine playing techniques, musical knowledge and interpretation skills to her students while developing their musicality as true Classical musicians.
