Charles Simiana

Music lessons have life long value for children and adults alike. Learning to play a musical instrument is greatly beneficial to the development of the brain, improving fine motor skills and focus but most important of all, playing an instrument is FUN.

Whether you want to learn to play music for leisure, to prepare for the HSC or even do AMEB exams, Charles is the person for you.

Charles has been playing music for over 30 years and specialises in Saxophone, Flute and Clarinet and has the talent and experience to help, guide and support you to achieve your goals.

“I have a lifelong love of music. I currently educate over 150 students a week at local schools and privately. I pride myself on being able to excite and challenge children and adults on the musical journey.

Each student is unique. My approach to teaching is that ‘one size does NOT fit all’, my lessons and teaching style are flexible and allow me to nurture each student’s individual ability.

I enjoy a variety of music, playing in a local concert band, Jazz ensemble, I also conduct 4 school bands and a local community band.”
