Master Teacher





Elizabeth Gaikwad Piano Studio




I have been teaching the Simply Music program since 2004 and have had great success with unlocking the musicallity within my students. The musical journey that we embark on is so exciting as we discovered which style of music “switches on” that feeling of musical satisfaction within. My students range from Age to 5 to 84……some have had previous musical experience…..and others are complete beginners.
Here are some comments from some of my students:
“Learning the piano with Elizabeth and using the Simply Music techniques has bought a whole new love of music back into my life. Years ago as a teenager I learnt by traditional methods and grew to love the piano, however, I was always consumed by having to have sheet music in front of me. I could never sit down at someone else’s piano and “just play”. I am now free to do just that, learning by patterns etc. Building a repertoire has been very rewarding and I have been quite surprised at how much I can retain. I am now writing my own pieces – which is something I never thought I would do. Over the last 5 years when I have had times of stress at work, the piano and music was my saving grace. Thanks Elizabeth for your amazing inspiration and creativity, you’re a gem!”Sonia, Drummoyne, NSW
“This almost two years’ learning for me is really amazing and full of joy. She took me to a wonderful and magical musical journey. Every lesson, I always can get some inspiration. Her free spirit of music touches me and inspires me, I really hope that one day I could play so beautiful and freely as her. I really thank her for taking me to this beautiful music journey and keeping inspiring me, making me know my potential and beauty inside my heart:)”Esther Li 24 years old
“After a 23 year gap in playing the piano I was thrilled to meet Elizabeth and the Simply Music method. Within weeks I had accomplished several pieces. (and no metronome or scales!) 4 years later I can play over 30 pieces and look forward to lessons every Monday-it is truly the highlight of my week.I have since introduced friends and recently my 6 year old son to Elizabeth’s teaching. Her wonderful warm engaging nature has evoked a love of piano and music in all of my family.Elizabeth is a gifted musician. She is a patient, talented teacher with a unique understanding and love of music and people. I would thoroughly recommend Elizabeth as a piano teacher to everyone from beginners to seasoned players and everyone in between! The results are amazing.”Jackie & Christian Laurens
I look forward to discovering the inner musician of each of my students……are you ready for the journey??
