Southside Music Centre started when Kire Stefanovski, a musician with over 30 years of playing, teaching, and performing, decided that Sydney’s young people needed more hands-on experience of music in their lives.

Kire teamed up with like-minded professionals and created an environment where people of all ages who live and dream music can share their passion and learn from each other.


Teaching Info

At Southside Music Centre we teach our students how to read and play music, sing, and perform. Whatever dreams they have, we start them off on the right track.

Our experienced coaches deliver well-planned individual lessons so that everyone learns at the right level and speed for them.

Although we keep it structured, there are always lots of opportunities for kids to hang out together, and even the odd jamming session! There are friends to be made, bands to join, and new things to learn at every turn.

In other words, we’re creating an atmosphere of passion and learning, achievement and opportunity, at Southside Music Centre. We say it’s all about the music, but to the kids and adults who come here, it’s sometimes more than that.

Whatever they get out of it; to learn new skills, get more from music, make new friends or just live life to the fullest, that’s what Southside Music Centre is all about.

We’re the Southside Music team and we live to play music. Now
we want to pass our passion onto you. Meet our music gurus and talented coaches!

Emma Nicolazzo
Vocal / Piano Teacher
Emma, (Nico to her friends), has a BA in Music (Music Theatre) from the Australian Institute of Music and a Cert IV in Performing Arts (Dance) from Brent Street Studios in Sydney.

As well as being an experienced performer and educator, Nico is also an accomplished composer, having produced two solo shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, a sold out season at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and most recently was a finalist at Short and Sweet Cabaret Festival in Sydney.

Nico says, “the key to learning is to always make sure you are having fun, the key to teaching is to always keep it fresh and exciting!”

We agree!

Jasmine Adrian-Dawson
Vocal / Piano Teacher
Jasmine’s musical dreams grew from an early age, developing her natural talents in vocals, piano and violin while she was still at home.

As a young adult, she realised music was her true passion and enrolled in Music and Performance studies at Middlesex University, graduating with Honours.

She received her Master’s Degree (MA) in Music Performance (Voice) from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, studying with some of the UK’s leading performers.

No matter what style of music you’re into, correct technique is essential. There is no better way of learning how to use your voice the right way than with a classically trained vocalist like Jasmine.

Michelle Vincent
Drums Teacher
Michelle has been a regular fixture behind the kit of many well-known Australian and International artists, so you’ve probably even seen her on TV!
