Greta More, Owner/Certified Simply Music Teacher
Greta More runs her piano classes from her home-studio in Belfield, Sydney's Inner West. Her aim is to share the knowledge and love of playing piano with students of all ages.
She has engaged in theatre, music groups, production and directing but didn't play a musical instrument.
Greta came back to piano as an adult. Having grown up with music as her mother was a pianist and beautiful mezzo soprano but like many children, had given up because she found the read-to-play traditional piano method difficult to understand.
However, when introduced to Simply Music Piano's playing-based method Greta realised that her dream could become a reality. Without this method it wouldn't have been possible for her to play piano. What she says about herself is that she's definitely not going to be a Mozart of Bach but the aim is to play, sing, compose and improvise.
The comprehensive program is fun and delivered in a way that is easy for students to acquire understanding of the musical concepts. And, this is why Greta teaches the breakthrough Simply Music Piano method. She want others to know that they too can succeed in playing piano no matter what age they start.
Greta's teaching style is engaging and inclusive, inspiring and motivating. She also bring to her piano classes years of study in how the human Subtle System works that gives her an additional dimension from which to understand the needs of each student.

Piano for Kids to Teenagers
"What we found was the more a child trained on an instrument, ... it accelerated cortical organization in attention skill, anxiety management and emotional control. The study found increased thickness in parts of the brain responsible for executive functioning, which includes working memory, attentional control and organizational skills. In short, music actually helped kids become more well-rounded. Not only that, they believe that musical training could serve as a powerful treatment of cognitive disorders like ADHD."
