I highly recommend Wendy Brentnall as a music teacher. She has inspired my son by encouraging him in a positive way. So much so that he frequently goes and practises without being asked. I have referred others to have lessons with her as well. She is a highly organised and skilled teacher.
On retirement from work I promised myself that I would learn how to play the guitar which is something I had been thinking about for years. I was fortunate that I chose Wendy's Music School. My tutor,Scott, has assisted me greatly with clear, informative lessons and has also shown the necessary patience with me. I appreciate the fact that there is no pressure and Scott's calming influence has been most beneficial. I'm looking forward to many years playing my guitar and thank Wendy and Scott for their input. The saying "You are never too old to learn" is so true.
My son has been learning piano from Wendy for more than one year, and he loves it so much! Wendy is an amazing teacher and obviously has a lot of experiences of teaching young kids. She has been passionate, patient and very helpful. I have recommended her to my son's friend as well and the little boy absolutely loves her lesson too. Thanks Wendy for all the efforts you put to build up the interest of my son in playing piano and in enjoying music!
When my 9-year old daughter Isabella showed an interest in taking up piano, Wendy Brentnall was recommended to me as a teacher who was patient, fun and skilled. Wendy is a gifted pianist and instructor whose passion for music inspires audiences and students alike. Over the past 12 months she has identified and nutured Isabella’s musical strengths and used this enthusiasm to address some of the more challenging areas of music theory. Wendy has truly connected with Isabella by tailoring her teaching methods to where she knows will keep Isabella’s interest. Her ability to use a range of tools (including iPhone apps), insight and a sense of humor to teach and instil her methods is truly impressive to watch. She also makes learning piano fun and interesting by allowing Isabella to choose some of her own pieces, and by using rewards to give her a sense of accomplishment. She even engages Isabella in timely challenges – from her first Piano Preparatory Exam (with a Final score of 100%) to the Christmas concert – to give her the skills and confidence needed with her instrument! Over the last year, she has also inspired and motivated Isabella to strive for new goals in her playing repertoire! Wendy has helped my daughter to appreciate the joy of piano playing, confidently understand music theory and, most importantly, enjoy music and love to go to lessons! Her piano playing is a welcome addition to our home and it is lovely to hear the progress she continues to make under Wendy’s instruction. Wendy is a gifted and enthusiastic teacher and I would highly recommend her as a piano teacher capable of helping your child develop a love for music, self-confidence and an understanding of the dedication and practice necessary to do well with their chosen instrument. – Sarah Riitano, Parent
