Lessons provide a strong set of skills to enable students to become who they want to be in music and throughout their lives.
Dallas started early with a guitar in her hands - a life full of music was always meant to be
With both grandparents being virtuoso pianists Dallas was inspired to play at every available minute. When a piano arrived in the house she started to play songs off the radio, songs off the TV - anything heard was translated to the piano from blues progressions to the thundering theme song from Dr Who.
Formal lessons in Melbourne ensued under the watchful guidance of Joan Voumard, and Dallas' intuitive playing and natural feel for interpretation led to brilliant AMEB and eisteddfod results as a young pianist, saxophonist and clarinet player.
Since then she has worked in the music industry as a performer in all styles as well as composing, lyric writing & working in music production and events, recently finding her singing voice and honing her songwriting talent as frontperson for Melbourne band Beautiful Savages as welll as writing and arranging the music for a new Australian Musical.
Dallas has over 20 years of experience working with musicians of all ages and genres and has just recently completed a contemporary music diploma focusing on composition, music technology & music education and is also qualified to a professional level in all aspects of training and assessment.
