How we stack up against competition
[My daughter] was also doing guitar in a specialist program at school, but I decided to withdraw her from it and focus on cello at Advantage because she learns so much more and so much deeper...
In a short time [my children's] playing improved dramatically and is now so expressive and beautiful.
My 12 year old daughter started with Maria this year after 5yrs learning at another music school. I have also seen a marked improvement in focus and practice at home. She always comes out of her lesson feeling happy.
I have found AMA to be very helpful with scheduling and the change between teachers was so smooth. I was also impressed with their ability to adapt with the Covid-19 events by offering online learning.
Very professional approach to teaching music that caters for all ages.
Professional, dedicated teachers.
Advantage Music Academy has a professional yet friendly approach to teaching music to both children, teens and adults.
During the COVID upheaval they have continued to be amazing by accommodating the needs of the kids with continued tuition and encouragement online.
Advantage is the best environment for learning – my daughter doesn’t miss her subjects at school to go to lessons and there are lots of other music students around and they can hear and see each other playing and learning, making friends, and you know the teacher and can speak directly to the teacher.
The facilities are top class and always extremely clean and maintained.
Advantage Music Academy provides excellent music education in a friendly and supportive environment.
The facilities on offer at The Academy allow the boys to arrive early, or wait afterward, do their homework, or relax in comfort without pressure - if we cannot get there exactly on time to collect them.
Highly recommended, beautiful facilities
Knowledge, skill & expertise
... the lessons bring everything together – theory, ear training, technique etc.
Steve is an excellent piano teacher with an impressive knowledge of technique and musical theory, and the ability to identify technical fixes and communicate clearly what needs to be changed to progress.
...most importantly, educated, committed Staff.
...the kids enjoy [the teacher's] teaching immensely...
Steve is always attentive to my child’s interests, personality and learning.
Steve, the principal at AMA matches his tuition to bring the best out of each boy. Their progress is tangible. It‘s not just the individualised tuition - there is ad-hoc optional group sessions for similar ability kids on things like rhythm and reading music.
Steve has been teaching my daughters (12 and 10) piano for 2 years and we have found him to be an exceptional music teacher. Steve is personally committed to the growth and progress of each of his students and adapts his teaching style to suit the individual needs and personality of each student. His focus on communication and expression in performance encourages playing for enjoyment whilst his knowledge and experience with the AMEB curriculum allowed my daughters to prepare efficiently for their exams and achieve excellent results. Steve is patient and fun, connects well with children and adults alike, and makes lessons enjoyable.
Positive Place to Be
We met [the Director] before enrolling our daughters. He was so helpful and actually cared about our girls and their interest in music. He is always welcoming and interactive.
My son was a bit hesitant to start with a new teacher but after his first lesson with Maria, he felt at ease and really enjoyed it
[My daughter] always comes out of her lesson feeling happy.
[My daughter] looks forward to every lesson
Most importantly, our boys enjoy their time there - the most important thing of all!
I travel over 25kms once a week just to go to Advantage because it’s worth it...
We drive from South Fremantle for the piano lessons. It is certainly worth the drive.
My son is always eager to attend his piano lessons as Steve makes the lessons fun and interesting while still learning.
All the staff are fantastic and very patient!
The classes are really fun and the children are beginning to learn the basics of music in a fun and relaxed environment.
I have noticed my son's love and knowledge for music grow since starting in term 1.
